Better Laundry: Front Load vs. Top Load Washing Machine

Front Load Washing Machine eightWest

There are times when consulting with industry experts beats any research you can do yourself online. When it comes to a washing machine, everyone has their preference. At Bekins, we do too!

While we offer a variety of styles, we believe front load washing machines clean your clothes the best.

WHY A FRONT LOAD WASHING MACHINE?

To meet government guidelines for high efficiency, washing machines use less water. Many high efficiency top load washing machines without an agitator will barely move your clothes. Don’t believe us? We took the top off one and recorded it on video. How much detergent residue do you think will be left in this load?

A front load washing machine can use less water and still get your clothes clean. It works on a front load because your clothes will tumble through the small amount of water.

what’s the hesitation?

Some people hesitate to use a front load washing machine because they have heard about some of the old, original versions which had problems with mold. Manufacturers like Whirlpool have largely solved that problem. If you care for your washer properly, you won’t have that issue.

Two simple ways to avoid mold in a front load washer:

  1. Crack the door open when you are not using it.
  2. Use one good brand of high efficiency detergent and don’t use too much of it.
