Careful now! Front loaders are great but are subject to a laundry list (HAHAHAHA) of problems everything from that funky smell of water collecting around the door seal to catastrophic main bearing failure (look it up) and the energy savings that are supposed to be one of their main selling points has to weighed against their higher initial cost. Oh and the lifespan of a front loader is typically around five years it seems short but the machines are now more plastic than metal and they aren't easy to work on they are built in such a way that to get inside you are looking at about a five hour job.
