As you know, we are in the process of building a house. Pretty soon I'll have to buy a washer and dryer and I need to decide between a snazzy front-load or a traditional top-load washer. Either one is okay for clothes, but I want to know which is best for washing quilts. (The photos are just for illustration.)
I've read Consumer Reports and some online discussions. I don't really care about the steam option and having lots of settings isn't important either. I want one that will be gentle on my quilts, reasonably energy-efficient, and not too noisy.
The front-loader looks cool, but is it worth the extra $? Tell me what you think. Thanks.
