    Question Front loading washing machine - do you have one?

    Our next washing machine will be front loading. They save on water and are way more energy efficient.

    Yes- we just got one to accommodate a shower in the downstairs bathroom.

    I have one and I love it. We are on a well and we have definately seen a savings in our electric bill.

    I have only ever had front-loaders. In the UK these are the norm and have been for a long long time. As soon as I moved to the US I got a front loader too. I love the energy savings and water savings.

    I've had a swedish front load for about 15 years and will definately buy another one when this one dies.

    Nope, I have a regular washer. I got it for free and it was practically new! When this one goes, then I'll definitely look into a front loader.

    Yup...I've got a bosch. I love it!!
    Bad thing, though....it takes WAY longer to wash a load.
    I just had to adjust my schedula.

    Regular washing machine here. Although it would be good to own a front load one day. Hubby would appreciate it He does all the laundry.

    Nope. We have a top-loader (got free) and an old wringer washer (got free).

    I would really love to have a front-loader but that's a ways off, according to the budget.

    Not yet. does anyone have any complaints with lifting heavy jeans from the front loader. My SIL complains that it hurts her back using the front loader while the top loader does not hurt?
