Top loader VS front loader washer for CD

Hey Mommas! We're moving soon and I'm on the hunt for a cost effective W/D. I've been reading recently that because FL(front loader)do not add as much water in loads they therefore do not clean cloth diapers worth a stink. Supposedly HE TL(top loader) are the way to go but I've also been reading that both sides wish they would have just stuck with there 10 year old machine.

What would you say? Advice on which brands you like and don't like. Should I take stock in what I'm reading? Also, does HE REALLY make a difference in water and electricity usage? I'm having a hard time "proving" to my husband that we need the energy star rated higher priced appliance because we've yet to have one so we don't really know which is more cost effective now vs later. (Although my MIL's he front loader takes at least twice as long as a normal TL.)

Thanks ladies!!!
