A high efficiency top loading washing machine rotates tumbles, lifts and drops the clothes during washing. As such they does not require water level to rise to the top of the laundry as in conventional top loading washing machine, and washes clothes more thoroughly. High efficiency washing machine requires less amount of water, energy and detergent for washing clothes.
The tumbling motion of a high efficiency washing machine causes clothes to rotate freely in a machine, resulting in an efficient and effective cleaning with less wear and tear of the fabric of the clothes. High efficiency top loading washing machine gently cleans clothes without pulling them violently around the vertical shaft as in conventional top loading washing machine.
High efficiency detergents are used in high efficiency top loading washing machine because they have less suds which require less amount of water for rinsing the clothes. These washing machines rinse laundry many times with fresh water so that no detergent residue is left. Advancement in technology also enable high efficiency top loading washing machine to have high speed spin cycles for extracting the water from the clothes without even balancing the load. Low moisture content in the clothes when transferred to the dryer reduces significantly the time and energy required for drying the clothes. It means high efficiency top loading machine are quiet time and energy efficient.
Advantage of high efficiency top loading washing machine is that it is quiet easier to toss the dirty clothes into the top loader even when the machine is in the middle of the washing cycle, which is not possible in front loading washing machine.
