The front loading washing machine is the most popular washing machine model out there. These have the door on the front of the drum. The alternative is the top-loading washing machine, which has the door on the top of the drum. With top loaders, you don’t have to bend down as much to load and unload your laundry, but with front loaders, you have the advantage of being able to stack your dryer on top of your washer, for example. Because the front loader is bought much more, there are also many more of them made. With front loaders, you therefore have more options in, among others, the amount of fill weight, the different wash programs, the energy label and the price range. Top-loaders are a lot less popular, so you only have the choice of a few models – which are often largely similar.
