The 8-load washers are perfect for large families or individuals with a lot of laundry. These machines can handle up to 8 baskets of laundry at once, saving you time and effort. They are ideal for bulky items such as comforters, blankets, sleeping bags., medium rugs and bed pillows. Why are front load washers better than toploaders? The toploader agitator just swishes clothes back and forth but the front loader tumbles the clothes over and over thoroughly soaking them with soap and cleaning them better. The spin cycle up to 1000 rpm gets a lot more water out of the clothes than an agitator spinning in a top loader.
