Hi everyone, a final repair to my washing machine in the hopes it would make it last until a little past the stay at home sadly is not going to work out in Park Ridge. Everyone complains about smells and issues with front loaders so not sure I want to go there. Does anyone have a top loader they can recommend? Thanks

Top loaders are garbage but if you insist on one, get something old school. Less mechanics. Do not get one without an agitator. You can get a speed queen if you like those. Stay away from Samsung

I switched to pods and added vinegar to each cycle with my front load and it took care of the smell and grime issues. I just bought a front load Electrolux to replace my 12 year LG machine and I love it.

Top loaders are the way to go.

We have a two year old top load Maytag agitator and we not happy with the low water(energy efficient) washing machines today. We have ruined 3 bed sheets, one bed comforter, several nice shirts and some towels. The thing is the water level does not fill up like they used to so with an agitator it basically shreds your clothing over time. Looking to buy a new one again and figure out how to buy the old school washing machine that fills up to the top with water. I am all about energy efficiency and other way to reduce consumption but I wish I bought the one without the agitator. Maybe they work better with less water. I am already looking to replace

I just got a whirlpool cabrio top loader from Abt. I got the larger size, and I didnt realize how big it is! Massive capacity. It doesn't have and regular agitator, it has a little impeller on the bottom. I've only had it a week, but so far, I've been happy. And you cant beat Abts service.
