Top-loading HE washer & dryer for us?
My Whirpool washer/dryer pair are about 7.5 years old. The washing maching has been repaired once, just last Nov., because the switch to make it "go" needed replacing.
Now the electric dryer is running, but has no heat. It probably needs a heating element, but it could be 3 other things. DH doesn't feel comfortable trying to do the "fix", so we'll be calling a repairman.
Anyway, when it comes to replacing the washer/dryer, I "think" I want a H/E top loading set.
But I know how terribly expensive the sets are, and now I'm wondering if it's worth the investment for us.
It's just DH & me, and I do, on average, 8 loads a week. Nothing is too large. Right now, I go to a laundromat when I want to wash blankets and comforters.
We live in FL, where water is expensive. But I don't know how long it would take to recover the expense of H/E top loaders.

I'd appreciate everyone's thoughts & opinions.
