Kenmore is essentially the most popular manufacturer of washing machines, and with good reason. They are reliable, durable, and perform at the highest level. When considering a washing machine, you shouldn’t overlook Kenmore.
The Kenmore 28132 washing machine uses a triple action impeller that has a 3-part wash motion allowing for an easy work out of tough laundry. It comes equipped with a StainBoost option that provides one of the best stain removers in a washing machine. It does this by increasing the wash time while remaining gentle. This is important because a longer wash time will allow for the washing machine to get the stain out, and the gentleness of it will maintain the solidity of your clothes.
The top-loading washing machine has a fabric softener dispenser, as well as a deep fill option that will automatically adjust the water levels intelligently, based on the load size. This allows for an optimized water usage when cleaning your clothes. It is approximately 5.3 cubic ft, allowing for two baskets full of clothing.
With that said, the Kenmore 28132 washing machine is an obvious choice for the best overall washing machine of 2018. Keep in mind installation is only available in select cities with Kenmore. It isn’t hard to install, though!
Then Kenmore top-loading washing machine is a great choice if you’re looking for a middle of the pack product. While it isn’t as powerful as the 28132, or as fancy, it will still provide an incredible clean. This washing machine is approximately 4.2 cubic feet, allowing for two baskets of clothing.
The Kenmore washing machine has 12 different wash cycles (normal, casual, delicates, express, rinse & spin, drain & spin, clean washer, soak, jeans/towels, whites, bulky/bedding, and heavy duty), allowing for a variety of cleans depending on the clothing, sheets, or blankets you’re putting in. The deep fill option of the washing machine allows you to add more water to the washing machine when needed. If that doesn’t spark your interest, you’re capable of leaving it on auto.
The washing machine’s wash basket is constructed with a durable stainless steel that is resistant to dents, chips, and corrosion. This allows for a longer-lasting washing machine on a budget, which is extremely important considering. With this top-loading washing machine, you’re going to experience clean clothes like never before which is why we’ve listed it as second in our review of the best washing machines of 2018.
The Magic Chef top-loading washing machine is our budget pick in our review of the best washing machines of 2018. While it may not be easy on the eyes, looking like a copy machine, it will certainly provide you with fresh clean clothes on a budget. Looks aren’t everything, though. You can have a $2000 work of art washing machine that has the cleaning capability comparative to you cleaning your clothes in the sink.
The Magic Chef washing machine has electronic controls with a LED display. The wash basket is constructed with stainless steel providing a durable, reliable, and dent, corrosion-free wash. It has six different wash options, as well as six different water level selections giving you a wide variety of choices. If you’re someone that enjoys watching the washing machine work, it has a viewing window that allows for it.
Keep in mind when considering the Magic Chef washing machine, it is very compact and lightweight. That said, it is only capable of holding 1.6 cubic feet of clothing. If you’re someone that is proactive in washing your clothing, then this will be the perfect budget washing machine for you.

Save yourself some time with the Speed Queen’s fourth-ranked machine in our review of best washing machines of 2018.
The Kenmore 41302 washing machine is the first front-load washing machine in our review. Personally, I’m a top-load kind of guy, but I suppose it all depends on the location of the washing machines within your household. Sometimes you don’t have the necessary space to open up the front door; therefore, the top-load washing machines reign supreme.
The Kenmore 43102 washing machine is capable of holding 4.5 cubic ft. For a better example, in real use, you can put 27 large towels within, comfortably. With the Accela wash technology introduced in this model, you can expect a full load to be clean within 29 minutes. The increased efficiency of this washing machine will ensure you are able to get back to your hobbies much more quickly. Unless, of course, washing clothes is your hobby.
The stream treat option on this machine eliminates the need to pre-treat your clothing. Our favorite feature of this washing machine, though, is the garment option. How many times have you forgotten to put a sock or a sweater in the wash? I know I do it every time I put a load in. This option allows you to toss that forgotten piece of clothing into the washer even after the cycle has started. Cool, eh? Technology works wonders for us in other products, why not washing machines too?
The Kenmore 68133 washing machine is different in the sense that it also has an electric dryer built in. You’ll quickly notice the price point, but consider how convenient it is to have two products within one. You’re going to take up less space while getting the same clean, and dry you would out of two separate machines.
This washing machine has a 5.3 cubic ft capacity which is capable of washing up to 24 large towels for reference. The tub, constructed with stainless steel has a triple action impeller that provides a powerful clean under the roughest situations. The Stain Boost option on this machine essentially removes the need to pre-treat your clothing. It offers a longer-lasting wash, while being gentle, ensuring that your clothes maintain their durability.
The Kenmore 68133 electric dryer function is equipped with SmartDry Ultra technology that fine-tunes the temperatures for the amount of clothing. It is also capable of measuring the moisture levels which will then automatically adjust the cycle time and heat of the dry. The quad baffles on the machine offer an innovative design with dual heights that allow clothes to open up for a better-optimized tumbling. You can expect the express dry setting on the machine to dry a smaller load in under 30 minutes.
The Kenmore Elite front-loading washing machine is the second most expensive front-loader in our review of best washing machines of 2018. We found in our review that this washing machine has an incredibly sleek, and durable design that will fit into most households with little to no issue.
Equipped with 5.2 cubic ft capacity, you can expect it to handle large loads comfortably. One thing we really noticed, is that for all of you buyers with large comforters, this washing machine did an incredible job. Too often you have to take your large comforters to dry cleaners because your machine simply cannot get the job done. On top of that, it has a setting for children called the “Kids Wear Cycle”. This will scrub out set-in stains. It will run the load through another rinse cycle allowing the clothes to become more clean, clear of dirt, and detergents.
Another feature is the StreamTreat option that will also take care of the stubborn stains that you’ve been battling for so long. It has an NSF-certified sanitization cycle that will use high water temperature to kill 99.9% of most bacteria without the use of bleach, or other unfriendly chemicals. This will also maintain the solidity of your clothing, towels, and comforters giving them a longer-lasting life.
The Haier HLP21N is another budget washing machine, but it differs in the sense that it’s a pulsator. The pulsator aims to provide a more powerful, and effective wash without the constant twisting, and pulling on your clothing which will inherently reduce their lifespan. With no agitator, the washing machine is able to add more additional space to the stainless steel tub, allowing for more clothing to be washed.
With totally digital controls, you are able to select from heavy, normal, or quick wash cycles with electronically controlled water levels by a simple touchpad. If you’re in need of interrupting a cycle to add a piece of forgotten clothing, there is a pause button. Equipped with a LED indicator light that will clearly display the cycle status, you can be sure to know when your load is fully completed.
When purchasing the Haier HLP21N washing machine, we recommend considering how much space you have. While it is a small machine, with a 1.0 cubic ft capacity, it is perfect for apartments, and areas where a traditional washing machine wouldn’t be able to fit. Sometimes you can’t create more room, but a washing machine can fill the room you do have. Let the Haier washing machine take care of your laundry needs.
The Blomberg WM77120 front-load washing machine is a fantastic product. It has 12 different cycles available to you. These included Sanitary, Baby Protect, Sports, Jeans, Quick Wash, Spin Drain, Rinse, Hand Wash, Wools, Delicates, Permanent Press, and Regular/Cotton. As you can see, this washing machine will offer an incredible amount of versatility ensuring you will get an amazing clean across many different fabrics.
The internal water heaters on the Blomberg washing machine enable a higher water temperature which increases the washing results as well as the total hygiene of cottons. This allows for your clothing to live a more healthy, and long life. A lot of washing machines technically destroy your clothing, which is why you see them become less durable over time. You’d think this is related to actually wearing the clothing, and while some of it may be, you need to consider how much of a beating your clothes actually take when being washed.
Our favorite feature of the Blomberg WM77120 front-load washing machine was how quiet it is. If you’re like me, your washing machine is located near your living area. Sometimes we don’t have the choice of where we put them per the construction of the house. So, the quietness of this washing machine shouldn’t be overlooked when considering that.
Overall, the Blomberg washing machine is a fantastic choice if you’re in the market for buying a washing machine.
