Advantages and Disadvantages of a Top-Loading Washing Machine
• 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,
• 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.
