Front Load W/D vs. Top Load
So, on top of buying all new kitchen appliances for our new build, we now have to buy a new washer and dryer. Our 16yr old ones are dying slow deaths. Anyway, my husband and I are in a back and forth about whether to get a top loader or front loader. We've researched to death.
He has decided he wants a top loader because of the smell issues. He does the laundry and doesn't want to deal with cleaning the washer every time. I get it.
I want a front loader because I want a counter on top of it to put my three large paper baskets that I use to separate and organize the crap, I mean important paper work, that comes home with each kid every day from school. If I don't have that counter in the mudroom, then I'll have to keep these baskets in the office, which is at the front of the house. Not ideal or convenient.
Are the front loaders so bad that if I strong arm him into getting them, he could potentially resent me for the rest of our days? Like I said, he does the laundry, so I don't want to push too hard if I'm making a big mistake :-)
