  • Diretso Sampay! 8 Best Automatic Washing Machines, According To Moms

    These are their tried-and-tested brands!
    by Kitty Elicay .
  • They say a mom can only dream of emptying out her laundry baskets, but doing the laundry can be made easier with the right automatic washing machine. But with two types of washing machine — top load (where you load the laundry at the top) and front load (the ones with circular doors at the front) — which ones will give you bang for your buck?

    Mom-recommended automatic washing machines

    On our Facebook community, Smart Parenting Village, one momma shared that she plans to buy a washing machine this month and asked her fellow moms to recommend their top brands. Unsurprisingly, more parents are buying top load washing machines because just like front-loaders, top load washers can clean well, are gentle on clothes, and are efficient when it comes to water and electricity consumption. They also come with a reasonable price tag than front-load types.
