Doing research on newer HE top loaders vs Fronts
Currently have a Whirlpool Duet 7200 series (7-8 years old) washer and dryer. The dryer is giving error codes best cost to repair is about $400 and the washer still works but clothes do not become as clean anymore and its making an odd noise during spin so Ã¯Â¿Â½ looking at new machines now.
When we bought the above about 7-8 years ago - top loader HE models were just starting to come out from Whirlpool Cabrio I think??? We actually bought it and liked it BUT it threw water out of the basket during spin cycles and didnÃ¯Â¿Â½t balance well with larger items like towels. SO we switch to the front loaderÃ¯Â¿Â½
All that said (sorry for the wordiness) I see many many more top loader options than before. I suppose in an effort to push up the prices on front loaders? HOW are the newer top loaders - do they still have a ballooning issue - i mean the basket canÃ¯Â¿Â½t be supported on top like the front loader can, can it? And with out a sealed gasket system to they still slush water onto the floor?
Any pointers more than welcome - thanks
