As a comforter is not a daily laundry item / i would take it to the laundromat, on occasions of need.( they have huge washers and dryers for this need.)
when I'm buying an appliance such as this ( it's not an annual item, more like a car or furnace purchase) I usually ask my friends or neighbor what machine they have, and their satisfaction with the brand, and performance.
When you are not buying an item on a frequent basis, it's difficult to build up a choice format.
As well, they may have done a great deal of research etc.
Laundry days, can be FUN DAYS.
