There has always been a debate on the topic of top-load vs front-load washing machines. There are supporters of both types and both types of washers come with their pros and cons.
On one hand, front-load washers have a bigger capacity, which means you can fit more laundry in them. They are also more energy efficient and less rough on the clothes.
On the other hand, top-load washers are smaller which means they can fit better in tighter spaces. They are also cheaper than front-load washers and it is easier to load your laundry in them, because you do it from the top, instead of bending over each time you have to load and unload the clothes. Top-load washing machines are also faster in washing your laundry than front-load washers, so they are more time-efficient.
