  • I’ve now bought a replacement washing machine – my old top loader lasted 29 years. I’m hoping this new top loader will also go the distance too. I love reading everyone’s opinions.



  • I had them both. I found that one of the greatest pros of a top loader is that you can add wash during the program. However I found the wash comes out cleaner with a front loader.



  • I always had a top loader, but because everyone seemed to be going the front loader way. I decided to get one. Well that would be one of my worst decisions ever. It smells, it practically shakes the house down. It constantly needs draining and cleaning. I really miss a top loader.



  • I prefer a top loader because it’s harder for kids to climb into it.



  • I have a top loader one which has a high water saving star rating. If I miss putting something extra in I can lift the lid and put it in. A relative mine bought a front load washing machine and now she is getting a little older she finds it difficult removing the wet clothes. A friend of mine also has a frontloader and had washing in it. A friend was staying there, paused thewashing machine opened the door and flooded the laundry.



  • Top loader for me. I’ve even chosen my next washing machine, and it too will be a top loader.



  • Front loader. I find it so much better than the top one. I had them both in my life.



  • I love my Miele front loader… it uses minimal water.



  • Front loader cheaper and more efficient.



  • Top loader for sure. They’re just way more convenient to use. :)



  • Front loader for efficiency; but top loader for size. Both have pros and cons!



  • Front loader I guess because of their efficiency, not so good though if you have to stop it mid cycle!



  • front loader
    cleaner clothes,water and power efficient



  • I personally prefer a top loader. I find my clothes come out cleaner for some reason. I also like the option of being able to throw things in once the water has filled up which you can’t do with a front loader. Although the benefit of a front loader is being able to wall mount it to free up space



  • Front loader. It means you can store a dryer directly above it without any dramas
