    Cons: door opening should be larger

    Summary: I purchased this Frigidaire front loading washing machine back in 2003 when the Maytag top loader that came with our house went kaput after 30+ years.  I planned on buying a Maytag front loader, but chose the Frigidaire model as it was more ... read more

    Pros: Quiet (until it broke apart). Good cleaning, saves water and detergent.
    Cons: Poorly engineered. Guaranteed to fail in under 5 years. Expensive to repair.

    Summary: Paid $699.00 for the "Heavy Duty" Frigidaire GLTF1040 washer. I decided to go for a front loader for the energy savings since I live in the country and heat my water with expensive propane. My aunt had a front loader that she bought in 1972 and only had ... read more

    Pros: Quiet, energy efficient, works well.
    Cons: Pricier than top-loaders.

    Summary: I've had this machine for a couple of weeks now and I love it. I originally wanted a front-loader so I could stack the dryer on top (which I did) and gain some space in my laundry room. It was a little hard parting with the cash for this one ($570 at ... read more

    Cons: Easily dented top, not to be used with even heavy-duty appliance extension cord

    Summary: I bought this unit from a scratch and dent vendor off ebay - I use it in my upstairs condo - since front loaders use so much less water, I can have a drain hose to my kitchen sink, and simply have it drain into there - instead of being plumbed in. I ... read more
