How to Choose the Perfect Washer


Top Loading or Front Loading

Top-load versus front-load is mostly a customer’s preference of ergonomics. Both platforms have models that offer capacity, cleaning performance, fabric care and energy and water efficiency. Front loaders offer more flexibility in configuration as they can be stacked to save space.

Conventional or High Efficiency

Conventional washers are top loading washers with agitators in the basket. These deep fill machines fill almost completely with water. This is the least efficient laundry platform, however, some may be ENERGY STAR® qualified. High Efficiency, or HE, washers are all ENERG Y STAR® qualified and use reduced amounts of water and energy, only using enough water to get the clothes saturated. They come in both top load and front load platforms. Top load HE washers use a wash plate to move the clothes around for cleaning while front loaders use tumble action to clean the clothes. Although conventional washers are less expensive to purchase, HE washers provide savings on the cost of water and energy throughout the life of the product; often enough to cover the incremental cost of the product.

Full Size or Compact

The size of the laundry area and the capacity needed are the key factors used to determine whether a full-size or compact washer is needed.

• Full‑size washers are generally 27‑inches wide and will handle from 12 to 20 pounds of laundry.• Compact, space-saving models are generally 24‑inches wide and will handle 8‑ to 12‑pound loads.

Side-by-Side or Stacked

Dimensions of the laundry area frequently dictate whether the side by side or stacked configuration will be used.

• Both top load and frontload can be set up with the washers and dryers side-by-side. The standard configuration is the washer on the left and the dryer on the right. Side swing dryer doors are right hinged to make access from the washer easier. Dryer doors are generally reversible to left hinge if the dryer is needed to be placed on the left. Frontload washer doors can only be reversed on a few select models.

• Front loaders in side-by-side configuration can also be placed on pedestals that raise the pair 10-15 inches, allowing for better access.

• Front loaders can also be stacked with the dryer on top of the washer. This requires that the washer and dryer be matched. It is usually best to reverse the dryer door when stacking so that the washer and dryer open from the same side. An optional stacking kit is also required.

• Laundry Centers combine a washer and dryer in one unit with a top loading washer on the bottom and a dryer on top.

Discount Washing Machines at Sears Outlet in Castro Valley, CA

The Sales Associate James was very helpful to me and my wife shopping for a washing machine. He took the time to help us search for what best fit our needs. Also we received allot of help from Brianna Brooke as well who was able to locate further product in the store which were in the back and not on the main floor. I was very impressed with both of them. They made the Shopping experience much friendlier than any of the retail homdepot or Costco stores nearby.

Cheap Washing Machines Sold by a Knowledgeable Staff

Zachary, the assistant store mgr was extremely helpful and he was the reason that I purchased the washer. He was knowledgeable about the washers and was able to help me feel comfortable with making this major purchase. He was also respectful and patient. David was the salesperson who is on the sales receipt but I thought he might be fairly new. He was the one who greeted me and was helpful but it was Zach who sealed the deal for me. I will return to this outlet store again when I need to purchase an appliance and I certainly would recommend this store to people.

Deals on Washing Machines at Sears Outlet

My daughter and I were just in the store 25 days prior to this trip when we purchased an oven. The trip we made on 22 Sept. was by far the best experience we have had at the outlet store. I believe it is solely related to the salesperson who helped us this time. He was excellent in knowledge, presentation and verbably explaining every aspect regarding the washing machine purchased. The checkout process was easy, and without being overwhelmed with what I call "add-ons" which increase the price of the item purchased. His explanation of the care and service of the appliance based on the extended warranty purchased would have sold me if I had not intended on purchasing it prior to my arrival. My entended family and friends purchase ONLY Sears appliances because of the people and products themselves. I will shop no where else for appliances.

Top Rated Front Load Washers Available at Sears Outlet

Arron had me take my time as I was a unsure of the initial decision so he did not put any pressure on me. When I was ready, I had him come over to help me make the best decision for my needs. I appreciate his input and his patience as a washing machine is used 3-6 time a week for several years so I had to weigh the benefits of brand X versus brand Y (Top Loaders versus front loaders). Arron wanted to make sure that I was comfortable with the decision that I was making.

Cheap Washer and Dryer in Houston, TX

Mr. Hector Neyra was our salesperson and he was the best salesperson we have had at the Sears Outlet Store. We've bought two washing machines and two dryers at the Sears O.S. and received the best service from Mr. Neyra. Also, the young man who helped us load the washing machine in the truck today was pleasant, courteous and respectful. Unfortunately we did not get his name.

Discount Washer at Sears Outlet Purchased Based on Consumer Reports

Monique was terrific! She was extremely patient with my extensive (2 hours) decision-making process (while I pored over the Consumer Reports advice in the store), and extremely helpful in advising me of the Sears financing options that best met my needs. We got it home, installed and running the night we bought it. I've done 5 loads of laundry in the past 36 hours--very happy with my new washer!
