Most of the best washers under $600 are the top loading kind with a capacity of almost 4 cu/ft and are pretty good for a family of 5.

The most conducive innovation to today's washing machines is choice of various wash cycles appropriate to your needs and you generally get anywhere between 6 and 13 wash cycles. If you're unsure of what else to look for, just have a quick glance at our best washers shopping guide.

Furthermore, the spin speed of your washing machine should be a matter of concern unless you are going to use a dryer separately and most washers don't give you higher than 600rpm.

Our list below, comprises only the top rated washers between the $400 to $600 tag that are recommended by expert reviewers.
