Buying a Washing Machine
|Buying a Washing Machine|
|Choosing a washing machine should be an easy job, shouldn't it? It's not one of life's more important decisions, but you will be using your washing machine for many years, so it's worth careful consideration. Our Washing Machines Buying Guide will help make your decision the right one. |
|Types of Washing Machines:|
|There are two basic types of washing machines: Top loading washing machines and Front loading washing machines. Each of these has its advantages.|
Newer, high efficiency top loading washing machines require less water because they tumble, agitate, lift and drop the laundry during the wash cycle. They also have faster spin cycles, which results in faster drying times.
The biggest disadvantage to front loading washing machines is that it is a little difficult to keep clothes from spilling out when the door is open, especially with big loads. Also, while it's easy to toss that dirty towel you forgot about into a top loader even when it's in the middle of washing, this is not so easily accomplished with a front loader. Otherwise, there are many advantages to front loading washing machines:
If you do a lot of washing and have a large family, then you should seriously consider a front loading washing machine. According to most surveys, they wash more efficiently and give a cleaner wash. They also have a faster spin cycle, so whether you air or machines dry your wash, it will dry faster.
