Washer Recommendatrions - Top Loader vs Front Loader
My Whirlpool washer of 13 yrs needs to be replaced. In an attempt to research a new one, I've created more confusion than clarity.
I'd like to move toward a more efficient (both energy & water) washer, but I can't seem to find any common themes or recommendations.
Front loader complaints of smell, long cycle times, inefficient rinses, poor electronic components, and failure rates at less than 5 yrs concerns me.
Consumer Reports recommends LG, but some ppl love their LG, some hate them. Others love their Meile, some do not. Samsung? GE? Again, no consistency.
The information on Top Loader HE is even less helpful.
I'll take brand and model recommendations if anyone can help with some consistent data to drive the decision.
