Are front-loader washing machines better than top loaders?


Which type of washing machine is best? Do they both get clothes as clean? Help!

    Despite my ranty answer, I want to comment that I do love front-loaders' gentleness. If you are washing mainly nice, more expensive "adult" clothes (no kids in sports or spilling spaghetti on their shirts) a front-loader may be the better option.

    I can totally understand your response. I don't have kids and am mainly washing lightly soiled clothing & a lot of them are 'good' delicate materials. I can see in your situation the top loader is a better choice.
