Best Washing Machine for a Large Family

If you have more than four people living at home, you have a large family.

Therefore, it’s necessary to have appliances that can accommodate everyone. This is especially true with washing machines. 

The three machines below are the best on the market today. These include LG, Whirlpool, and Samsung.

They offer top-notch features and the largest capacity without breaking your bank account.

Our Pick – LG Signature WM9500HKA


LG’s Signature model is a front-loading washing machine. It has a 30-inches diameter with a capacity of 5.8 cubic feet.

Its design incorporates smart technology, therefore it’s Wi-Fi enabled. Plus, there are 14 wash cycles. This is the largest model you can find for the price.


  • NeveRust Stainless Steel Drum
  • WiFi enabled with smart technology
  • EnergyStar and UL Certified
  • Water heater included

What We Like About LG Signature

The price is very affordable considering the size, capacity, settings options, and features it comes with. It has solid engineering with a provable record of quality.

What We Don’t Like About LG Signature

While an excellent appliance, LG Signature is quite big. You have to make sure there’s enough space in your home that can also handle its weight.

Also, the door’s locking/unlocking mechanism can jam if you are too hasty or aren’t careful.

Pros & Cons



Convenient for large loads and heavy duty washing

Some people report having serious problems with it

WiFi allows for long-distance monitoring

Door tends to stick and not open

14 different settings with reliable construction

Certain aspects aren’t as well constructed as others

Alternative – Whirlpool WTW7120HC


One of the largest models whirlpools has is their WTW7120HC.

This is a top-loading appliance with a 5.3 cubic foot capacity.

It has Wi-Fi, so you can connect your smartphone and monitor the wash from a distance.

It also has a smooth impeller, so you don’t have to worry about clothes tearing or shredding.


  • Has Whirlpool’s signature Load & Go system
  • The EasyView Glass Lid allows for viewing of clothes as they wash in real-time
  • Intuitive controls and adaptive wash technology
  • Built-in pre-treat station

What We Like About Whirlpool

Whirlpool is a long-time trusted name in home appliance technology. They are notorious for their washing machines and this top-loader doesn’t disappoint.

Plus, it’s easy on the bank account while being able to handle large filthy loads.

What We Don’t Like About Whirlpool

Unfortunately, the spin speed on this particular washer only reaches 850 RPM. This means the wet clothing may put pressure on your dryer or you’ll have to hang dry your garments.

Pros & Cons



Excellent for tight and/or limited spaces

Drum doesn’t spin very fast

Has a stackable adjustment to put a dryer on top

Can be difficult to view clothes washing

Real-time monitoring at a distance with Wi-Fi


Best Budget Option- Samsung WA55A7300AE


Samsung’s 5.5 capacity top loading wash machine is excellent for large families on a tight budget.

The design and engineering of this model means you can wash an entire load of clothing in 30 minutes or less.

It comes with Smart Care, to monitor your water and soap usage in real-time via Wi-Fi.


  • Comprises stainless steel inside and out
  • Connects to your Wi-Fi for monitoring and observation
  • Electronic LED controls and EnergyStar certified

What We Like About Samsung

The best thing about Samsung’s extra-large capacity washer is the price. You simply can’t go wrong in relation to the massive capacity it can handle along with the features.

Washes clothes quickly and easily with an intuitive interface.

What We Don’t Like About Samsung

While Samsung advertises this model as having “super speed,” it only has 750 RPMs. Both models mentioned above are much faster.

This translates to being careful with how much you put in per load. If there are too many items or if the whole load is too heavy, the machine will work overtime.

Pros & Cons



Solid and reliable engineering

Machine quality is a tossup

Fantastic on tight budgets

Some report that it breaks down in two months

Thoroughly and quickly cleans clothes
