How much does it cost?
The Load & Go XL Plus is a complex and smart appliance, so it does come with a matching price. You can purchase the washer for approximately $1,400.
The Load & Go XL Plus is a smart appliance that can easily be controlled through your smartphone. You can download the app on both the Play Store and the Apple Store and you can control features such as starting, pausing the wash cycle, track the progress of the wash cycle and more. You will even receive notifications when it is time to refill the dispenser with detergent and fabric softener.
The Load & Go XL Plus has a large dispenser in which you add the detergent and fabric softener only once and it will last for 40 loads (hence the Load & Go XL Plus name of the model). When it is time to do a refill, you will be notified.
Because it has WiFi connectivity, you can remotely control the machine straight from your mobile device, regardless of where you are located: at the office, at the supermarket and so on.
The Load & Go XL Plus has no less than 27 wash cycles, which is an impressive number. You’ve got a presoak option, cold wash cycle, sanitize cycle, steam clean and much more.

The only drawback we’ve seen in the Load & Go XL Plus is the fact that it is not Energy Star certified, which means you might not save so much money on your utility bills with this washer.
