top load washer vs front load washer
I am in the market for a new washing machine. I sold my old one with the house. It was a 15 year old Maytag Neptune front load. In the condo we are renting while we wait for our new house to be finished, there is a bottom of the line, Whirlpool top load. It appears to be relatively new.
We have been in the condo 4 months now (I think ... feels like 4 years!). I've noticed that some of my towels and washcloths are beginning to fray. Granted, they are not new, but the fraying has just started since we moved in. Also the hems are falling out of lots of the dish towels.
I've not noticed fraying in my clothing, but it does come out of the washer a lot more wrinkled, compared to my old Maytag.
Are top loaders inherently harder on the things they wash than front loaders? I was considering a top loader for the new house, but now I'm wondering what I ought to do.
