About Top Loading Washing Machine

Washing machines come in two different forms; either a top load washing machine or a front load. A top loading washing machine is arguably easier to load and doesn't require constant bending or squatting to fill or unload the machine, but the differences between the two do not stop there. The washing method of a top loading washing machine is different to that of a front loading one. This is because the top loading machines operate on a vertical axis, whereas the font loading machines operate on a horizontal axis. As a result, a top loading machine can rely on gravity to retain the water and dispense the cleaning and softening agents, while the front loading machines need to employ the use of a solenoid valve to pump everything through the system. Front loading machines also require constant maintenance and cleaning of door seals and bellows. This gives the top loading machines the advantage in long term convenience, and potentially in the overall life cycle of the machine. The washing cycles of top loading machines tend to be faster than those of front loading machines. This is because, historically, top loading machines have been designed for speed and simplicity. The mechanisms used in the machines are less complex and the cycle can be completed in a shorter time. This, together with the removal of the need to put strain on your back with constant bending to load and unload the machine, means the top loading machine machine becomes a very viable alternative a front loading device.
