What is the difference between front load and top load washers?
A front load washer has a door at the front and requires bending to load the laundry. Top load washers have a lid on the top that can be lifted to load the laundry. Between the two, front load washers are generally more energy-efficient, use less water, gentle on the clothes, and be stacked, making them suitable for small spaces. Top load washers come at a lower price and are easier to access as they are aligned at waist length.
