    Ours drains the water before it unlocks the door. You can pause but have to wait maybe 30-60 seconds before the door unlocks.

    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.
    If I notice something that quick I press stop or pause and the door opens again. If you have only just started the water is at the bottom. They don't use that much water anyway.

    It should fit about the same. I have a top loader at mine but often if I'm close to a visit at dads, ill save my washing and use his front loader. I love front loaders.

    I know they are supposed to fit the same but I really don't think they do. I had. 7kg top loader now a 7kg front loader and I def fit more in the top loader.

    I agree! I just switched to an 8kg front loader and I'm positive I used to fit way more in my 7kg top loader!!! Super annoying. I miss my top loader

    Yeah I have an 8 kg front loader and my mum has an 8kg top loader and I'm positive I could fit more in the top loader. I think its because with a top loader everything falls to the bottom and you can squash it down easier than stuffing everything into the front loader.

    Mine locks as soon as I press start, but if I stop it and wait it opens again. Mine is 5 years old so not sure how old you are talking about.
