Speed Queen question about integrity of clothing.
I am very interested in getting rid of my barely 3 year old frontloading Maytag 4000 washer. It doesn't wash well, takes FOREVER to do a load, constantly unbalances, and there is rot/mold always between the sealing rubber and the door that I can't seem to be able to manage because the area can't be cleaned enough times in one day!
Anyway, we are looking at a top loader again and I watched some great youtube videos just now on them (thanks to those who put links into their threads). I am worried though that the machine is too harsh on clothes. All that agitation, does it tear clothing after a while? How about the spin cycle? It seems to spin so fast I wonder if clothing will wear out faster than our super weak frontloader.
