which washer is best for handwashing

hchristieDecember 28, 2012

I am looking for the best washing machine brand and make for handwashing super delicate clothing.

I am considering the top loader lg wave force, whirlpool cabrio, maytag bravia and their matching dryers. I am also trying to get the best for cleaning pillow and other non washable stuff so am leaning toward the lg model that steams things in the dryer on a rack. The lg also has a stainless steel drum, direct steam option in the dryer and the direct drive, no belts to wear out, and largest capacity.

Thank you for any help.

I cannot tell you which brand is the best for that but I have a front loading Samsung and it is very easy on clothing on the delicate cycle. I also put some of those items in the little mesh laundry washing bags. I can wash about anything I need to with no problems.. from a King Size comforter to delicate antique quilts or crocheted items with not problems at all. I have been more then happy with my Samsung's....In addition to being quiet running and spinning my clothes come out very clean. It has several cycles to pick from but I wash most of my clothing on the quick cycle, the quick cycle has 3 levels to choose from, light, medium, or heavy. I use the heavy, which is a 33 minute cycle....The only time I might use the Normal wash cycle which is 58 minutes is on loads of whites or extra sweaty golf clothing. Hope this helps you some... I know purchasing a washer these days is a tough decision.
