The top loader machine defined

There are three different types of top loader machines that you can purchase; these are the agitator, the impeller, or the low-profile agitator machine. While all three clean clothes well, some are harsher than others or they may use more water or energy.

Agitators: this is the most common design on the market. An agitator sits in the centre of the machine and twists and turns to clean clothing. This type of top loader machine cleans clothing quickly, but it can be rough.

Impellers: a lesser-known model, this machine has a bump in the middle of its tub, which rotates and creates turbulence to clean clothing. This type of top loader machine can use more water and energy to run, and is prone to going off balance.

Low-profile agitators: these machines are similar to the agitators, except they have an impeller that sits in the tub, along with a full-sized agitator. This top loader machine is said to be softer on clothing but still gives a thorough clean.
