Stopping and starting it wouldn't work, pausing.. Waiting for ages.. It would just lock!
Even to the point once a load was finished you would have to wait for the "Click" noise.. It was about a 5 minute wait, not the end of the world but annoyed the crap out of me sometimes.
Ours was only 4 years old when I threw in the towel.
We had a repair man come out when we had issues with leaking, he said some have Safety lock features so they won't unlock until the end of the full cycle.
Omg yes!! That wait at the end was so dn annoying!
ETA: I have a 10kg Samsung front loader ... best wash I have ever got from any machine - top or front loader.
Sent from my mobile device so please 'cuse the typing missed cakes.
We just bought a new 10kg f&p top loader , the newer ones are better on water and energy than the old ones but not as good as the new top loaders ( we had a front loader and I hated it - i think my new top loader washes a lot better!)
Go and compare a bunch of energy and water ratings then. I know when i bought my front loader, i compared it to my old top loader and they were pretty similar on both. My front loader doesn't do cold washes either so this was comparing a warm wash! The cold wash you can do on a top loader is going to get you a heaps better energy score then using warm on a front loader.So not true front loaders are much more energy and water efficient they pound the clothes not agitate so much better at cleaning and use only a fraction of detergent.
I did. Today! LOL. Energy rating is generally much lower and that is comparing a front loader HOT wash to a top loader COLD wash.
