    The Maytag MHW6000XG is aggressive in its stain-busting removing stains from our bulky load better than any other washer in our test and aggressive when it comes to watching delicates too. In fact, the washer was as harsh on its light cycle as it was on our heavier load during its normal cycle, so beware if your delicates are particularly fragile.

    The Maytag Maxima MHW6000XW is one of the most efficient washing machines covered in our sources. It meets not only the Energy Star standards for energy and water use but also the far stricter requirements for Tier III certification from the Consortium for Energy Efficiency (CEE). This 4.3-cubic-foot washer consistently scores well in professional tests for efficiency and low noise and vibration.

    If you hate lugging clothes to a laundry room or laundromat, consider making a small investment in the Haier HLP23E. It's easily found on sale for under $250, and it does a really good job lifting stains. Expect to notice its presence on your electric and water bills, however.

    The Haier HLP23E has gotten some attention in 2012 owing to some top ratings around the net. Although this reviewer feels it cuts just a little too close to the price of a full-sized washer, there is no denying that it's a quality model. With a 1.5 cu. ft. capacity, easy sink connector, LED display, 4 wash cycles, and 6 programs, it is essentially just a tiny washer, with all features and capabilities fully loaded. If what you're searching for is a miniature version of your favorite top-loading washer
