Ad­van­tages

• A top-load­ing ma­chine is cheaper to buy

as com­pared to a front-load­ing one. • The drum door is lo­cated on the top of the ma­chine, so you don’t need to worry about the ex­tra space that is needed to open a front-load­ing ma­chine. • The de­sign of top-load­ing ma­chines is sim­ple and easy for first-time users to un­der­stand. There are fewer me­chan­i­cal parts to get dam­aged or mal­func­tion. How­ever, it may be noted that topload­ing ma­chines are be­com­ing a lot more so­phis­ti­cated and the lat­est mod­els come with a full range of wash pro­grammes and built-in ex­tras. • The ma­chine is qui­eter be­cause the drum

does not usu­ally spin fast in a top loader,

Dis­ad­van­tages

• A top-load­ing ma­chine uses more wa­ter than a front-load­ing one. The top-load­ing drum must be com­pletely filled with wa­ter dur­ing the wash cy­cles. This will lead to a larger house­hold wa­ter bill. • Top-load­ing wash­ing ma­chines tend to have fewer fea­tures and func­tions – if these are im­por­tant to you, then take that into con­sid­er­a­tion.
