Laundry may not be the worst chore on your to-do list, but if you can make it easier and get more done at once, why not? Front-load washers might be trending in homes all over the country, but some people prefer a top-load washing machine. These top-load clothes washers are reliable workhorses that can clean large loads with ease.

The best top-load washers have a range of features, but not every model is going to be right for you. When searching for a top-load washer, you’ll encounter a lot of options from a number of different brands. Which model is best? Check out our list of the best top-load washers for 2021, starting with the powerful Whirlpool Smart Capable WTW7120HW.

Also, check out our list of the best washers overall for information on the best front and top-load machines.

Whirlpool Smart Capable WTW7120HW

There’s a lot to love about this smart 5.3-cubic foot Whirlpool washer — including Whirlpool’s own app, which you can use to get laundry updates from afar and similar benefits. There’s also the useful Load and Go feature, which allows you to fill up a large washer compartment with detergent and use the machine’s sensors to automatically allocate the right amount of detergent for each load.

Whirlpool’s washing modes are intelligent and useful for everyday washing. The agitator washer can pick its own cycles with Adaptive Wash, or allow you to customize a cycle based on exactly what you want. Presoak modes allow for stain-cleansing prep, extra water options help with dedicated cleaning tasks, and a Delay Start mode lets you schedule washing around your day. The dual-temperature faucet and built-in pre-treat brush allow you to tackle dirt or stains right there before dropping clothes into the washer as well.

No other top load washer is so well designed for real-life washing challenges as the Whirlpool WTW7120HW, making it an easy recommendation.

LG TurboWash WT7800CW

LG has made a name for itself with high-tech appliances, and this 5.5-cubic foot LG washing machine certainly doesn’t disappoint if you are looking for smart features that will help you save as much time as possible. LG’s ThinQ app is useful for managing washer features from your phone and getting updates so you can continue on other projects. Sensors for managing water levels help customize each load, while you can also choose from 14 rinse cycles, 12 wash cycles, and several temperature settings. If you like saving energy, you’ll also enjoy using the Cold Wash mode, which is designed to provide the same cleaning as a hot water cycle without the need for hot water, saving a significant amount of energy.

Note that the LG WD200CV washer is an impeller model, and uses six different motions during the wash cycle to help provide a thorough clean — and often less noisy than agitator models, which may be another plus for your home.

Samsung WA54R7600AC

Samsung’s spacious 5.4-cubic foot washer comes with a feature we especially enjoy: Steam cleaning for more thorough and powerful stain removal that can sometimes serve as an alternative to going to a professional cleaner’s. But that’s just the beginning: The washer also has an active waterjet like our first Whirlpool pick, so you can rinse and pretreat stains right there at the washer, as well as 12 washing cycle presets and nine specific add-on modes to fully customize your cycle experience.

Other useful customization options include choosing to add extra water for a thorough clean, choosing a speed mode for an extra-quick cycle, and picking the right temperature from five different settings. The Samsung WA54R7200AW also is compatible with a monitoring app to help with troubleshooting.

Maytag MVW7232HW

Maytag has long held a reputation for solid, durable appliances, but lately the company has been embracing smart features, too. The result is an incredibly versatile 5.3-cubic foot Maytag washer that can do a little bit of everything, including managing your cycle from Maytag’s app wherever you are and pressing the “Extra Power” button to add a dual-temperature wash for dealing with tough stains.

In addition to typical cycle options, this Maytag model has a Quick Wash option that’s over in half an hour, an Oxi Cycle for making sure bacteria is gone, and a Deep Fill for customizing the water level. The Maytag MVW7232HW includes a built-in faucet for laundry prep! Plus, the 10-year limited parts warranty is a nice addition if you’re worried about long-term performance.

Amana NTW4516FW

Is staying under budget one of your priorities? This highly affordable model is a great choice for saving money. It uses a dual-action agitator and a nifty late-lock lid that leads you add forgotten clothes in before the spin cycle officially starts. Modes include five temperature settings, a delicates cycle, and a deep water wash for using extra water to combat stains.

The one thing to keep in mind about the Amana NTW4516FW is that it’s only a 3.5-cubic foot capacity, so you are limited in load size, making this pick a better option for smaller homes or when a front load washer just isn’t the right fit.

Speed Queen TC5003WN

Speed Queen focuses on classical reliability with a highly effective agitator design and 210-degree range of motion to make sure every load is thoroughly cleaned. There aren’t a lot of bells and whistles on this 3.2-cubic foot model, but that also makes it incredibly easy to use immediately without learning about any new features or smart apps — just adjust the dials and away you go!

The Speed Queen TC5003WN offers six preset cycles to choose from, as well as options for a variable water level selector, extra rinse, and warm rinse. There’s also no lid lock, so you can add in additional laundry as you see fit throughout the cycle.

Marvel confirms ‘Hawkeye’ and ‘Ms. Marvel’ are coming to Disney+ in 2021

Published

on

Halfway through July, this has already been one of the busiest years in the history of Marvel Studios. That makes it all the more incredible that we have seen less than half of the content that the studio has planned for 2021. In addition to the three new movies Marvel is releasing in the second half of the year, we also have confirmation that at least three new shows are coming to Disney+. After What If…? drops in August, Ms. Marvel and Hawkeye are still to come.

Speaking with Variety earlier this week, Marvel Studios EVP of film production Victoria Alonso revealed that “a few other shows” are on track for 2021, including Ms. Marvel and Hawkeye.

It’s worth noting that both Ms. Marvel and Hawkeye had already been slated for late 2021. Both the Ms. Marvel page and the Hawkeye page on Marvel’s official website state as much. That aside, Marvel has had very little to say about either show since announcing them in 2019.

What are Ms. Marvel and Hawkeye about?

While WandaVision, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, and especially Loki helped to set up the stakes of the MCU’s Phase 4, Ms. Marvel and Hawkeye should be even more purposeful. Ms. Marvel will introduce us to Kamala Khan (Iman Vellani) ahead of 2022’s The Marvels. In Marvel comics, Kamala is a Pakistani-American and Carol Danvers fangirl that ends up getting powers of her own. She also takes her name from the powerful Avenger. Vellani will reprise her role in the sequel to Captain Marvel.

As for Hawkeye, we know that the show will bring Kate Bishop (Hailee Steinfeld) into the fold. She may very well take over for Jeremy Renner as an Avenger at some point in Phase 4. We also know from the Black Widow post-credits scene that Yelena Belova (Florence Pugh) will be involved.

Predictions for Marvel’s 2021 release dates

Here’s what we know about Marvel’s plans for its movies and shows for the rest of 2021: What If…? is coming to Disney+ on August 11th, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings arrives on September 3rd, Eternals follows on November 5th, and Spider-Man: No Way Home drops on December 17th.

Based on the fact that we saw some footage of Ms. Marvel last December, my guess is that it will start streaming on Disney+ in October. That leaves November as the only month left in the year without a Marvel Studios release. Therefore, I’m betting Hawkeye lands then.

Netflix is releasing 56 original movies and shows in August – here’s the full list

Published

on

Boy oh boy, has Netflix stepped it up recently or what? The streamer’s subscriber numbers from the last quarter weren’t very impressive. We have a feeling that’s due in no small part to the lack of compelling Netflix originals earlier this year. Long story short, Netflix’s movies and shows were beyond weak for the first few months of 2021. Now, however, things are really starting to pick up again. This past month alone, there were so many high-profile Netflix releases. You can see the full Netflix July releases list here. Highlights include Gunpowder Milkshake with Karen Gillan, the fantastic final season of Atypical, Virgin River season 3, and the Fear Street trilogy that horror fans loved. Now, however, it’s time to turn our attention to all the Netflix original releases in August 2021.

Wondering what Netflix subscribers have to look forward to next month? We’ll run down the full slate of new original releases right here.

Netflix original releases: August 2021

Netflix just announced all of its upcoming movie and series releases for August 2021. There are plenty of gems in there from third-party studios, but people are far more interested in original content. Netflix has been steadily raising its subscription fees every month, after all. Each time, it says the increase will help pay for new original content. With that in mind, subscribers want to know that they’re getting their money’s worth.

In August, Netflix has 56 new original movies, shows, and specials on tap. That’s down sharply from the 69 new originals spread out over July. Of course, quality is far more important than quantity. With that in mind, it’s time to see what kind of quality Netflix has in store.

Scroll down to check out the entire release calendar of Netflix originals in August. We’ve also included links to the relevant Netflix pages wherever possible. This way, you can set a reminder to be alerted when a title is released next month.

This free iPhone app is so incredible, it’s hard to believe it’s real

Published

on

If you need to order new contact lenses or a pair of glasses, many places won’t let you do so unless you take an eye test first. And seeing as how a trip to the optometrist can set you back as much as $200, many people put off getting their vision checked even when they should.

There is, however, an interesting alternative to popping into stores LensCrafters. Warby Parker recently issued an update to their Virtual Vision Test app for the iPhone. Now, users can take an eye test from the comfort of their own homes at a fraction of the cost of a traditional eye exam.

Today’s Top Deal Amazon’s #1 best-selling portable Bluetooth speaker is down to the lowest price of 2021! List Price:$34.99 Price:$22.09 You Save:$12.90 (37%) Buy Now Available from Amazon, BGR may receive a commission Available from Amazon BGR may receive a commission

How the mobile eye test works

With the new app, which was previously called Prescription Check, it’s now easier than ever for individuals to check their eyes and renew their glasses or contacts prescription.

Once you download the app, you can take a traditional eye exam. Open the app and you’ll be able to read letters off the iPhone from a distance of about 10 feet. Naturally, you’ll want to do this in a quiet and well-lit room.

If the app determines that your vision is good, which is to say that your prescription hasn’t changed, you’ll be charged $15 for a brand new prescription. And as mentioned above, this is vastly cheaper than the $200 you might otherwise be charged by taking a trip to the doctor or eyeglass store.

Don’t worry, a doctor is involved in the process

If you’re wary about leaving your eye test to a mysterious algorithm, you have nothing to worry about. Once your eye test is completed, an eye doctor will take a look and assess each individual’s results. In other words, the test itself is mobile, but the analysis is still handled by a professional.

App requirements

The app itself requires iOS 14.1 or later in order to run. And seeing as how iOS 15 is right around the corner, that shouldn’t be an issue for most users.

Additionally, the app is only available for the iPhone for the time being. At this point, there’s no indication in either direction if an Android app will be coming anytime soon.

Further, only individuals between the ages of 18 and 65 should use the app. Users experiencing problems with their current prescription shouldn’t use it either. You’ll also need a copy of your existing prescription on hand. The app notes that even an expired prescription will do.

If you’re curious about checking the app out, you can download it here from the App Store.
