America’s 5 Favorite Washer Brands

Although there are dozens of washing machine manufacturers, there are only a few brands that Americans trust. There are five washer brands that stand out from the competition and are the top choice for almost all families. If you are shopping for a new washer, consider one of these five most popular washer brands.

1. Whirlpool

Whirlpool washers have always been top of the line. If you talk to your mother or grandmother, you will probably find out that their first experiences in the laundry room involved a Whirlpool washer! With a sturdy design and a great reputation for quality, Whirlpool is the leading washer manufacturer in the United States. Around ten years ago, Whirlpool purchased Roper, KitchenAid, and Maytag to dominate every price range of the washing machine market. Whirlpool is definitely a brand you can trust, with bulletproof design and real attention to detail.

2. General Electric

If you are looking for a washer with a long-standing reputation for quality, look no further than General Electric. GE washers are a favorite of many Americans, who like the variety of price points and the huge selection of features that GE machines offer. New General Electric washers are all front-loading. You can purchase GE washers through their lines at Penncrest, RCA, JC Penney, and Hotpoint.

3. Frigidaire

Frigidaire is owned by White Consolidated Industries. If you walk through any home in America, you will probably see at least one Frigidaire appliance and it could be the washer. Today’s Frigidaire washers are built to be extra sturdy. They use new technology to make repairs less frequent and to increase the lifespan of every machine.

4. Amana

The Amana washer line is now part of Maytag and they are a leader in quality among the washer industry. You might know Amana washers by their earlier title of “Speed Queen” washers. These machines are just as tough and sturdy today as they were twenty years ago. Amana is a great choice.

5. Maytag

Maytag was originally known for their orbital washers that depended on counterweights to power the cycle. While many of those orbital washers are still in homes across America, the new Maytag technology is even better. Maytag is a leader in innovation and design.

If you want a trusted brand for your new washer purchase, choose from Whirlpool, GE, Frigidaire, Amana, or Maytag, these are the brands we receive the fewest calls for washer repair. These five washer brands are the top choices for many consumers and we are confident that you will like them too.
