Jul 22, 2008

Front loader comprises a lot of modern innovations, and one of them is that there's no center agitator that takes up important space, or to mangle and tangle the laundry. This machine uses, instead of agitator, a tumbling action which is much simpler on the clothes and it causes less wear and tear on the clothes. In addition, this machine has a stronger spin cycle which reduces the time for drying because it extracts more water. The only disadvantage of this machine is however, if you are used to adding items during the wash, you would not be able to do so with this type of washer.

This helps you to save the trip and lets you spend more time or other household chores that needs to be done.

But if you shop around, you will find that front loading washers are more expensive than the top loading washers. But keep in mind that beside the initial cost aside, the effectiveness and efficiency of the front loading could save you more money in the future.
