washing machine: FL vs TL?

Right now I've got a TL. It's over 20 yrs old and is probably on its last leg of life. DH has repaired it several times. But, still working FOR NOW.

My parents have an 8yr old FL they are offering us that is also on its last leg, but probably has a little more life in it than mine does. (especially if it's something that DH can repair).

What are the pros and cons when it comes to diaper laundry? Or does it really matter?

Re: washing machine: FL vs TL?

I prefer my front loader. Do the same as you normally do in a top loader. Rinse first, then hot wash, two rinses. If you run into problems there is usually an easy solution.
