How to choose a washing machine? – Front load washer vs top load washer – Watch this before you shop
How to choose the washing machine? This question is the most popular among homeowners when I deliver the bad news to them – your washer is at the end of the life cycle and it is not worth fixing. Now you need to pick a new washing machine.
So I have decided to shoot this video and help those who are in the process of choosing a good washing machine.
What is the difference between the top load and front load washing machines?
What is the advantage of a top load washing machine?
What is the disadvantage of a front load washing machine?
If I have a big family, should I buy a top load machine or front load washing machine?
If it is just the two of us, should we go with a top load washer or front load washer?

All those questions are very reasonable and crucial when you are asking yourself how to pick a new washing machine.
Here is my advice
If your budget is tight go with the top load. You will spend less and it is more reliable than the front load.
If you are looking for a user-friendly appliance with high-quality washing then choose a front load washer.

Hey. Does the longevity of a washer depend on the make. For example those that have belts as compared to those that just have a mortar

How about water use considerations? We live in an area with extreme drought. And I'm thinking about replacing our washing machine as I heard front loaders are great for saving water. Is it really a significant savings?

Garrik, how do you tell if the heater is working for the sanitize feature? I have the small LG frontloader and I don't think it has ever worked properly.

My clothes get grimy on the job, lots of ground-in soil, cement paste, occasional grease and oil stains. I've used front-loaders when there was nothing else available, and they do better than the agipeller-fauxgitator-fraudgitator models you find at the big box stores ,but the only thing that really gets my clothes clean is an old-school vane-type true agitator like you find in the Speed Queen TC5000.
