Top 5 washers for the (day after) Cinco de Mayo

Washing machine sized sombreros?

You may be waking up this morning (or afternoon) to the realization that a new washing machine is in order.

What happened on the 5th of May that made you come to this realization is entirely outside of our realm of knowledge (we’re appliance and electronics experts, after all).

But now that you’re waking up to this realization, you know you want a new washer: something energy efficient; something with a good capacity; something that deals well with hazily remembered stains.

Grab a cup of coffee (and maybe a few aspirin), and take a look at our picks for the top 5 washers.
