near bedrooms or living spaces. A7 has
a NightWash cycle that lets you wash two
to three items and then spins them dry
overnight. AS is the least expensive but
is relatively noisy and has the longest
wash time in this group.

These high-efficiency top-loaders get
your clothes clean in much less time than
front-loaders. B1 is the only top-loader
that aced our cleaning test, and it's the
quieter of the two, though it's not as easy
on your clothes. It also has a phone-in
diagnostic tool. B3 is gentler on wash
and slightly more energy-efficient.
ALSO WORTH

CONSIDERING

These low-priced. large-capacity washers
were very good at cleaning and almost
as efficient as our picks above. But they're
noisier. keeping them off our winners'list.
The Amana and the HE top-loaders are
also mediocre in gentleness. Be aware
that the availability of the GE is limited.
