Please HELP me decide!!

My BOSCH front loader is a lemon and so the store is going to replace it with something of my choice. Now being the super indecisive person that I am makes this a little stressful. I've been pouring over reviews and it just seems to make things more complicated.

The BOSCH machine required that I stand and fill it manually with a juice container so there was enough water to clean/rinse the diapers. It drove me crazy!!! I don't ever want to do this again. I'm interested in a HE top loader but it appears that they don't give you hot enough water to actually clean. Is this true? Or I'm interested in a front loader that I can choose the water level and water temp.

My wish list is something that has a sanitary cycle, an add additional water option (for diapers), huge bonus if the machine could heat the water on its own (my BOSCH does this) and lastly I want to be able to turn the end of cycle signal off.

Is there other considerations I should take into account when buying a new washer and using cloth diapers?

Please any suggestions on brand or type of washer would be greatly appreciated!!!

A soak cycle! My HE FLer doesn't offer this option, but still does a nice job

The ability to add extra rinses or run a rinse-only cycle. My LG HE TL does this and it's really nice. It also allows you to set up a custom routine and assign it to a button.

If you don't mind me asking how long have you owned it and do you have the model number?? It sounds great.

sounds like we might have the same washer and you can hold down the extra rinse button to make it add more water (max twice per cycle)

i don't know the model number, but the front says LG WaveForce, if that helps at all

It's a Samsung and it says VRT Steam on the front. It doesn't have a soak cycle, so anything I want to soak I just soak in a bucket -- I really haven't missed that feature but I've read it's a great thing to have! I do have to bleach our nighttime inserts on a regular basis in order to keep them clean and smelling fresh.

I have an LG HE toploader that sounds just like these. They don't have a name and just say waveforce on them. They have model numbers but I can't figure out what ours is. Pretty sure this is the one we have and I got it for $700 last year during Columbus day sale. My only complaint and it's not a big one is that it doesn't seem to do well with powder detergent and I had a box of the old Tide that I had been hoarding and saving just for use with my diapers but it wouldn't rinse it through the dispenser very well.

I keep reading reviews that the HE TL don't have a hot water setting on them. The reviews read that the water is tepid at best. Is this true?
