Maytag® Commercial Laundry Equipment Vs. Electrolux & Wascomat: Which Is Best?

Looking for new commercial laundry equipment to upgrade your current housing facility or to launch a brand-new laundry business?

Whatever your needs, you want equipment that best maximizes the productivity, efficiency and sustainability of your laundry operations.

In addition to Whirlpool® and ESD®, Lakeside Laundry Equipment is a proud supplier of industry-leading Maytag, which has achieved a reputation for dependability. Maytag’s commercial laundry equipment is reliable and built strong to withstand the high-volume usage that occurs in coin, multi-housing, on-premises and industrial laundry environments.

Engineered for energy efficiency, Maytag machines operate at the highest performance and save on energy costs. Here’s how Maytag stacks up against Electrolux and Wascomat machines.


Electrolux machines are ideal for vended laundries and on-premises laundry (OPL). However, the Electrolux brand makes only front-load washers, which generally have smaller load capacity and much longer cycle times – often 60 to 120 minutes. Electrolux machines also tend to lean towards the high end of the price range for washers.


Wascomat commercial laundry equipment has always been manufactured by Electrolux, and both live within the Laundrylux brand. Wascomat features several benefits for OPL environments, multi-housing and vended laundry, offering energy-saving solutions that include using 60% less water and having drying cycles that are 15 minutes shorter compared to traditional commercial laundry equipment.

With extra-large load drums, Wascomat machines allow customers to double capacity while their Cross Balance technology keeps loads balanced.
