Should I buy a top loader or front loading washing machine?

February 5, 2010

Saw this on CTV News last night, “Top or Side? Should you go with a top or side-loading washing machine?” You can watch the video online, of course, but to summarize:

Top- loading washing machines are cheaper to purchase, but front-loading washing machines will save you money throughout the lifespan of the appliance because it uses less water and removes more water from your laundry during the finally spin cycle. Less water means shorter dryer times equals greater savings.

Consumer Reports, the agency that tested over 71 types of washing machines, estimates that decreased drying times will save the average household $130 a year.

Watch the video to see which brands and types of clothes washer were considered a “best buy”.

Front-loading washing machines sometimes have a foul smell associated with using them. This can be caused by mold growing in the gasket or seal of the machine. Wiping your gasket down monthly and leaving the door ajar after each load will help prevent this. If you still have problems, try a HE Washing Machine Cleaner like Affresh™ Washer Cleaner or WasherFresh to get rid of smelly washing machine odors.

Maytag Clothes Washer shakes and does not balance loads

December 15, 2009

Question: My Maytag Clothes Washer, Model number pav2300aww, shakes and pulls the pressure fill line loose from the tub. The Maytag washing machine also does not balance the load when spinning. It is on a solid cement floor, so that is not the reason for the shake. How can I make it stop shaking?

Answer from ApplianceJunk.com: The snubber ring at the base of the washer helps keep it from shaking.
I would remove the front of the washer and take a look at the snubber ring.
