Which is better in the long run: top or front loading washing machine (washer)?
Too many of my clothes have been ruined, so it's time to purchase a new washing machine. I've always preferred the top loaders since they typically have a greater capacity and now don't even need the agitator. My mom's had to replace her front-loader more than twice as often as a top-loader, and the tops seem to be cheaper. What are the actual advantages of a front-loading machine?
