What would you recommend for a good super capacity top loader washer? My 15 year old Whirlpool just died. Don't really trust electronic controls, reviews of he top loaders are so mixed, I am unsure. Also...


To be honest I really don't trust electronic controls due to the fact that the majority of the repairs i do on front loader machines has to do with the electronic controls. In my opinion top loaders are more reliable. they get the job done. If you were to get a top loader i do recommend whirlpool, even though i agree that the quality is down. I also like the whirlpool cabrio, its a top loader but has electronic controls. it uses less water and soap just like a front loader. Whatever you do decide to purchase, I highly recommend that you purchase the extended warranty. This way if there is ever a problem, you know that you are covered.

WHAT IS THE LOAD CAPCITY SIZE OF WASHER MODEL 110.20702990


On newer, and sometimes a little newer, Whirlpool and Kenmore (Kenmore is made by Whirlpool) considers a few things in determing capacity. Most of the inner baskets are the same size, but they also add in agitator action into the mix. A Kenmore with an auger top agitator would have higher capacity than a Kenmore with just a normal agitator, even though it has the same sized drum. So a super capacity washer would have theoretically less CLEANING CAPACITY than a super capacity plus. The agitator action is actually what determines capacity on these models. So, with that in mind, cubic load should be about the same on both units. Sorry that I had to go into "Bill Nye The Washer Guy" mode, but thats about the only way to describe. Let me know if I can confuse you any more haha. Seriously though, if you need further help or info, write back, and will try to get you some other information. Remember, this theory only works on top load "normal people" washers, not the front loaders.
