It always feels good when somebody agrees with you. A recent Consumer Reports test proves that we carry the best brands in our Bekins showrooms. Two brands of Whirlpool appliances (Whirlpool and Maytag) earned some of the highest scores in a test of washers and dryers. Even better, they earned those high scores in multiple price ranges.

MAYTAG AGITATOR TOP LOADER & ELECTRIC DRYER

Consumer Reports calls it “Good Looks for Less Money.” They say both machines are pretty quiet and “this workhorse is among the most energy efficient agitators.” Finally, they noticed the washer extracts more water than most which helps cut down on drying time.
WHIRLPOOL FRONT LOAD WASHER AND ELECTRIC DRYER
WFW75HEFW & WED75HEFW
Consumer Reports gave this washer high marks for water efficiency, energy efficiency, cleaning and gentleness with the fabric. The report also said this washer was among the most affordable front-loaders they tested.
The dryer earned praise for working quietly. The report says, “Expect the dryer to do its part without making a racket.”

The report says the dryer “aced it’s job. Neither (the washer nor dryer) makes a racket.”
