[Support our Advertisers!] Contributions from our Members:   Would anyone like to discuss how to teach a Gospel? ... I read something really interesting recently about the book of Mark. Let's see if I can get this straight. ... Here's the really fascinating part. Up until this century, many scholars tended to see Mark as a collection of important stories of Jesus' ministry with sort of "filler" material gluing it all together. But this "filler" material apparently has recently taken on new meaning since C.H. Dodd published a paper on it in the 1930's. [Support our Advertisers!]

Frontloaders[ 19 vote(s) ]
1.I own a frontloader and I am VERY happy. I wouldn't go back to a toploader 11 / 58%
2.I own a frontloader and I like it just fine but I can't say that I like it any better than I liked my toploader 5 / 26%
3.I own a frontloader but I wish I had stayed with my toploader 3 / 16%

I am going to have to make a decision soon on whether or not I am going to get a frontloader. I like the larger capacity and less energy use but I have heard some negative things (especially the mod issue with the seal). Is it worth the added expense. I want to know how happy you are with your frontloader.

Extremely happy. Very Happy Very Happy I wouldn't go back to a top loader if you paid me. Not sure what the "mod" issue is, what does that mean? I clean the inside once a month with a tablet from Home Depot, and I clean the glass and the inside of the door with vinegar and water.

I have no strange smells, no issues. My clothes are actually cleaner now than they were with the other machine, I use way less detergent so that saves a ton of money, and this machine even has a sanitary cycle. I use it sparingly because it takes a ton of hot water, but in certain situations (think: stomach bug) it warrants the use, and does the job beautifully.

I wonder if satisfaction with a front-loader depends on the brand?

Anyway, I highly recommend them, especially to someone like you, "Queen of Cheap"... Wink You WILL save money.


Grace & Peace,
Diana

One more thing: Because the front loader does not require an agitator, there is less wear and tear on my clothes. I safely wash all my clothing without even using a laundry bag.

I would have answered: we had a top loader, went to a front loader....it wore out really really fast...we went back to a top loader.

We have hard water. For some reason, we tend to get machines that die quickly: lemons.

I liked the front loader. It just wasn't a good machine for us and didn't last.

I had to laugh tonight because my boss has a front end loader with a shovel on the other end that he has let me drive and it went through my mind that a lot of ladies must have them if we are taking a poll about them. Laughing

I think I'm a bit tired.

I used a front loader when I lived in a Ronald McDonald House. My only problem with them was that I couldn't add clothing in part way through the cycle. The door would lock. I was forever finding a sock I dropped in the hall on the way back to my room and was frustrated that I couldn't add it to the load. I'm sure the rest of you ladies have no trouble keeping track of your socks so this wouldn't be a problem for you!

Um...you give us entirely too much credit! Laughing We have weird laundry system. The clothes get tossed down the cellar stairs, and whoever walks down the stairs next will grab whatever is there and bring it into the laundry room. In front of the washer and dryer we have a rolling rack that holds 3 netted laundry bags, for separating clothes. Everything goes in there.

Occasionally a sock may get forgotten but we do so much laundry here, it isn't very long until it meets up with its partner again. Wink


Grace & Peace,
Diana

Mine can be "paused" during the first few minutes to add an additional garment.

Yes Michele I caught that which is why I laughed at myself in the first place. I personally think we should have one of each!
Very Happy

You're much too young for dementia, dear sister!

So, now I know what you meant. I have never had a MOD...er...I mean, MOLD issue Wink with my front loader. You really just have to keep it clean.
