You see front load and top load washing machines everywhere but can’t help wondering what the difference is between these two very similar appliances – you’re not alone. Most people just choose a washing machine based off what’s trendy or what they’re used to. While they’re both helpful in their own ways, there’s quite a bit that’s different between the two washers. What it comes down to is price, ergonomics, energy efficiency, noise level, capacity and more. It even depends on if you prefer the way one looks over the other. Learn more about these GE Front and Top Load Washing Machines to help you decide which one you should go with.
GE Top Load Washing Machine Pros
GE Top Load Washers are in no way cheap appliances in the way that they perform or look, but they’re usually less expensive than a front load washer. This may be the better option for you if you’re wanting to save some money. Another pro to owning a top load washing machine is avoiding strain on your back. With the heights of the washer being just above your waist, you never have to bend down and put stress on your joints. If you’re wanting a cheaper and more ergonomically friendly option, the GE Top Load Washer would be the appliance you’re looking for.
GE Front Load Washing Machine Pros
One of the best parts about owning a GE Front Load Washer is its incredible water and energy efficiency. If you’re worried about racking up a big bill, paying a little more for a front load washing machine at first will save you loads in the future. It’s normal for washing machines to use about 35 gallons of water during a single wash, but with a GE front loader, you’ll find that half that amount is being used per wash. Not only that but if your back hurts from loading and unloading clothes into the front part of your washer, all it needs is a little lift to fix things. With the help of the GE pedestal, you can add both height and washing capacity to your GE appliance. If you’re wanting a washing machine with more load capacity and with better energy efficiency, a GE Front Load Washer would be the appliance you’re looking for.
All GE Washing Machines are equipped with innovative features, making it hard to just generalize between top load washers and front load washers. It’s important that when you are searching for a washer, that you take the time to look at some in person so you can get a better feel of what you want.
