Washer/Drier Recommendations
 
We are finally buying a new washer and drier, and I am not sure what to get. So far I have looked at LG, Kenmore, and Samsung toploaders w/no agitator. I am also interested in a LG front loader. Is it best to stay away from front loaders when cloth diapering? I don't want to be carrying buckets of water every time I wash diapers.

I don't have any specific brand recommendations but if I were looking for a HE washer/dryer I would look for one that had an extra water setting and an extra rinse setting to make things easier for me. I know some front loaders have extra water settings so you wouldn't have to carry a bucket of water.

We bought a top-loader Speedqueen a year and a half ago and love it!

Speed Queen toploader. Commercial machine used in laundromats. All steel, no plastic. Made in USA. Last machine you will ever buy, they seriously last forever.

I had a very expensive LG front loader. It was the worst washing machine I've ever tried.

Now we have a Maytag Bravo XL he top loader (I hope I got the name right). It is my favorite washing machine.

I have an LG set that I adore. It is the Wave series washer and matching dryer. It is an HE TL and it has an extra water feature, can add up to two extra rinses with the push of a button and it can just do a rinse only for the pre-rinse. It is awesome for diapers and regular laundry.

I have GE front loader with steam & E wash & dry. I love it with no stinkies in cotton, hemp & microfiber to date with my 6 month old. I never have to add extra water. I just do a speed wash, then wash with soap, steam assist, & extra R, then speed wash no soap. Even with this many cycles it uses about the same amount of h2o as top loaders but I still save on all the other loads I do a week.

We ended up get an LG waveforce toploader, and matching dryer :mrgreen:! I have had it for a few days, and love it so far. I am still experimenting with all the settings, and trying to find what works best for my diapers. Can you share what your wash routine is with your LG waveforce?
