I had a worlpool top loder that broke down after 5 and 1 half years. Was
always very loud in the spin cycle.

WorlPool is supposed to be a good brand. Not sure what brand ours is...

It probably depends on the frontloader. You probably have a more expensive
one than they were willing to pay for here. Pam.

That is not true! My world pool front loder has a button to stop the machine
and you can drop something in to the machine and turn it back on. So it is
not true you cant add things to the machine when it starts if you have
afront loader. Please make sure to get your facts straight. Front loaders
do not use as much water and they do not have an agitator that your loads
can get stuck on. SO when shopping, ask if the front loader has a stop
button to add items after the machine starts; most do unless you are getting
the very low end machine!

If you forget to put something in a front loader washer, you cannot
add it. My roommate did that one time without thinking, and there was
quite a flood. Of course the water just came right out when she opened
the door.
With a top loader, you can open the lid and put it in before it fills
up all the way. I like "more better for that reason. Some of my aids
put the front loader back on thinking that it is the dryer. So the
clothes go through the cycle again with just water. Then they think
that the dryer is broken when the clothes are still wet. I then make
them pay for the dryer on top so that they will learn to use their
head for more than a hatrack. One of them put a drum very mine on the
heater. I could not understand why I kept hearing snapping sounds een
the heater was stopping during cycles. It took me a week to find what
the sound was. A maintenance man came in to do something for me, and
he told that my drum was on the heater. The tuning strings were
expanding when the heat would switch on, and then they would snap back
when the heat would turn off. I was not happy with the aid. I knew
who did it based on who was here and when I began hearing the snapping
sound coming from the heater. Thank the Lord that the drum was ok and
not damaged. That was a miracle. No instrument or electronic device
should ever be near weather or heat and air conditioner. Never near a
