Front load washers are more energy efficient than top load washers. However, their initial purchase price is significantly higher, and they have a shorter life expectancy than top load washers. Top load washers are relatively more popular in the U.S. while front load washers have become more popular in Europe.  Top load washers also have shorter wash cycles than front loaders. This is because front load washers use less detergent and water and to clean more effectively, they usually take somewhat longer (20-110 minutes, depending on the size of the load) to wash a load. Front loaders are also equipped with computer controlled sensors which if set correctly can easily adapt the wash cycle to the needs of each load.

If you want a large capacity top load washer with a stainless basket,  this 3.9 cubic foot washer fits the bill for half the price of similar machines. The stainless basket also has a dimpled finish that helps clean, along with a very good agitator. It weighs much less than the old Kenmore commercial washer we had, hope it lasts 12 years like that one did.  Roomy enough for bigger stuff. It was easy to hook up and is very quiet. And as always, I really appreciate the free delivery. The delivery guys wrestled it into a difficult area and took away my old machine.  After hearing all the complaints from people we know who have bought the High-Efficiency washers, we decided to go with the old-school classic design. We couldn’t be happier! The washer has a very large drum inside which has seriously sped up my time in the laundry room. The clothes come out wonderfully clean and dry enough to go right in the dryer – no extra spinning time needed! I absolutely love this washer and would highly recommend to anyone.
