    I much prefer a front loader. You have so much more control over the wash and I find they wash better. I'm also on tank water so the water wastage with a top loader freaks me out a bit lol.

    I have also never had a problem while pregnant. As far as brands go, I can definitely say don't buy an Ariston. I have never liked mine much and I think the bearings have gone after only 5 years. I think I will go with a Meile next time. They are not cheap but I am happy with all of my other Meile appliances. They are quality and I hope it would last longer than 5 years! I have been house swapping recently and used a Samsung which I liked and they are not that expensive I don't think.

    I'm sure there are great top loaders also. The ones I have used were very basic and cheap. I can't get past the water issue though.

    We have a Bosch front loader, it's been great. Also had no problems while pregnant (it's on the ground)

    Thanks for all your comments! I was checking back in during the day. We bought one and I think it factors in quite a few of your points.

    It's a Samsung 8.5kg front loader. We got it pretty much half price ($809) because they had 35 in the warehouse at this particular Harvey Norman's. It's equivalent to the LG with the same specs. and normally the same sort of price. It had the direct drive motor and a 10 year warranty on that. It also has a special function that makes cold wash more effective for more types of washes--which I'm pleased about 'cos I try to wash mostly in cold. Productreview had very positive things to say on the whole...

    Hopefully it will serve us well. This means I can begin using our mcn's more. I COULD not get them clean in our current one!!

    Thanks for all your suggestions and insight.

    This is the one I got a month ago & love it! I only wash is cold water, use the bubble wash function & the clothes come out so clean.

    I'm glad you got one you like I have a front loader and it is pretty good, no problems loading it (despite getting pretty big now ).

    I found mine was advertised as around an 8 kg one (whirlpool), but most washes are actually only recommended for 4.5 to 6 kilo. Only the hottest washes are fine for the 8 (according to my manual). I was assured it would fit my king size comforter in it but it really shouldn't have anything that size in it which is disappointing (I have on occasion shoved my comforter in it anyway, and it does wash it, but not easily and not particularly well. It was emergency only type of situation, otherwise I would have just hand washed it in the bath tub). Despite that though I still like it, just next time I'll make sure the machine I get is as really as big as I need it to be
