Headquartered in Michigan, USA, Whirlpool is one of the Fortune 500 companies and a multinational leader in home appliances. Consequently, Whirlpool have the most competitive front loading and top loading washers in the market.
Whirlpool classify their washers into three broad categories: Traditional top loading units which are typically the cheapest, High Efficiency top loading units and High Efficiency Front loading machines which take the top place on the price ladder. The high efficiency washers are more recommended since, according to expert reviewers, they are said to be much more effective in their cleaning while also being lenient on your electricity bills.
Traditional and High Efficiency Top loading Washers

There's also a specific cycle that is certified to eliminate 99% of bacteria and allergens; while some of the best front loading washers implement Whirlpool's 12-hour FanFresher and dynamic venting technology. With this new amenity your machine comes with a built-in fan that tosses and fans your clothes dry.
