The Eight Best Washing Machines for Your Barn


It’s okay to admit it: We’ve all had that moment where, against our better judgment, we put a saddle pad in our home washing machine.

It might be good for the saddle pad, but it doesn’t turn out well for your clothes—or your washing machine, which likely isn’t suited for such heavy loads. A barn/designated washing machine is an absolute must, but which truly stand the test of sweat, hay and shavings? We’ve collected eight options:

Top Load Washer from GE

GE®’s 3.8 cu. ft Capacity Washer with Stainless Steel Basket is made to hold large loads. It features a heavy-duty agitator, which allows for a powerful wash action and thorough cleaning for tough stains (AKA manure). Its 700 RPM spin speed minimizes dry time.

Speed Queen Commercial Top Load Washer

If you’re looking for options, look no further: This washing machine has *27* cycle selections. Designed for commercial use, this washing machine was designed with heavy use in mind.

Speed Queen Home Style Mechanical Top Load Washer

This washing machine is heavy duty machinery for your home, filling the entire tub with water to achieve maximum cleanliness.

Giantex Portable Full Automatic Washing Machine

You didn’t know portable washing machines existed? We didn’t, either. Perfect for shows on the road, this washing machine stores easily and will save money on expensive horse show services and trips to the laundromat.

Garatic Portable Compact Mini Twin Tub Washing Machine

When it’s an Amazon best seller, it speaks for itself. Not only is this machine portable, but its twin tub design allows you to move clothes directly from the washer to the spinner or run both sides together!

LG 4.5 cu ft Front Load Washer & Dryer Combo

Space conscious? LG’s 4.5 cu ft Front Load Washer & Dryer Combo is the largest capacity all-in-one washer and dryer on the market. Talk about convenient!
