Front load washers


Does anyone else hate front loaders? I have had two, a basic model Whirlpool and a high end Samsung. I HATED them both. A funky smell all the time especially with towels and linens, no matter how much i cleaned it ( and i find it really silly that i had to wipe out my WASHER daily). I found my clothes especially denim to have so much wear due to the low water "efficient" washing, it washes with friction as the fabrics rub together with soap and very little water. I ended up giving away the front loads and going back to an old school agitator and full water washer. My clothes are cleaner and i dont have to wash my washer!

We had one years ago and I don't remember any smell. It lasted for years. In the end it was putting grease( black marks) on clothes.

same boat as you

Yes! We had one a few years ago and the drum broke and I couldn't have been happier!
They are crap and ruined my towels. I found if I didn't switch laundry within an hour then everything stunk.
I will never go back to a front loader.
I bought an old school washer off Kijiji for an awesome price and it works amazingly.

This is my first front load washer and dryer and I cannot get that horrible smell out if it. I've purchased deodorizing powders that say they clean the smell out.But they do not work
