Are Top Loading HE Washers Problematic?
Are the top loading high efficiency washers such as Whirlpool Cabrio and other similar HE top loaders more problematic than a good front loader?
I see user reviews saying they tangle and knot up their clothes due to spinning the clothes horizontally vs the way a front loader tumbles the clothes vertically.
I also see owners saying their laundry loads frequently get unbalanced and you need to be very careful about how to load clothes to prevent this issue where as you can throw whatever you want into a front loader that will tolerate the chosen cycle and water temps and not have these issues.
Are they louder or quieter than a good front loader?
The main reason I'm looking at top loaders is because you can install them on either side of the dryer without loading and unloading conflicts.
