    Default Front load washer

    Hi all
    Is anyone able to tell me if a 6.5kg front load washer holds the same as a 6.5kg top load washer? Sorry if this is a stupid question. I can fit heaps in my top loader just dont see how i could fit the same in the front loader...
    Thanks

    The front loaders have more room I find as they have no pole in the middle

    You can get top loaders without the agitator in the middle.

    Yep, ours is pole free

    I think they fit just about the same.

    The only reason I love top loaders is because if you miss putting a few items in you can still lift up the lid and throw it in.
    Can't do that with a front loader.. I use to hate putting the washing on, turning around to see I had dropped a sock or t-shirt on the ground and not being able to just add it to the wash.

    We had front loaders for quite some time, when the seals would get old or randomly break your laundry would flood lol.
    Our last one the door jammed and we couldn't get dd's stuffed piglet (it's her security thing, goes everywhere with her)

    I think they say top loaders use more in electricity? Or is it water?
    Can't be 100% sure

    I was told when buying my front loader that it will fit more than a top loader of the same weight limit. I was told that it can be completely packed full so long as you can still squeeze your had in and on top of the clothes/washing.
    I think the biggest downside to stuffing a lot in, is it just doesn't clean as well.

    I think top loaders are your best bet. They are made to be just as water and energy efficient as front loaders these days and seem to do a far better job in far less time.

    It will only let you do it in the first 10 mins or so of the cycle (you would not want to put anything in after that anyway). With mine you just hit the pause button and open dorr button it will drain a little if the water level is too high so you can open the door.
