I visited a speed queen today!
So excited to order them and thank you so much for your advice!! I'm sad to lose the large capacity but as far as top loaders go, I don't think it can be beat. We are moving our laundry to the bedroom level so I figure I won't miss the big load capability anymore. I checked out a few of the really large top loaders and all 5'2 of me would have to use a step stool and hang down into the bowl to pick up the clothes on the bottom! No thanks!
