In the battle between top-loading vs. front-loading washing machines, picking a winner seems a tough task. Both machines perform well, but ultimately the choice depends on your requirement.
This washing machine purchase guide tells you everything you need to know.
1) Runs Fewer Cycles
The large loading capacity of a front-loading washing machine allows you to clean a large pile of clothes in a single wash cycle. So, doing your laundry won’t take up half of your day; just a couple of loads and you will be done.
2) Water and Energy Efficiency
An average top-loading machine uses 90-100 litres of water per wash. Front-loading machines on the other hand use half that amount or even less. What’s more, they use just one-third the amount of energy and detergent compared to top-loading machines. For better results we suggest you pick a detergent such as Surf Excel Matic Liquid. It’s specially formulated for washing machines. Being a liquid, it dissolves completely in water and leaves no residue behind.
3) Less Noise During the Spin Cycle
Many front-loading washing machines feature vibration control. This feature stabilises the internal drum so that the entire unit doesn’t rattle and in turn protects your floors as well.
The most compelling benefit of top-loading washing machines is their pricing. They’re highly affordable when compared to front-loading ones.
2) Ergonomically Designed
If you have a bad back, bending over to transfer laundry can be painful. Top-loading machines allow you to load and unload laundry at a comfortable height, generally at the same level as your waist.
There you have it! Everything you need to know to pick between a top-loading or a front-loading washing machine. Happy laundering!
