Top Load vs. Front Load
⦁ Top load washing machine requires enough water to cover all the clothes wherein front load washing machine needs less water per wash cycle.

⦁ Front load machine is energy efficient because it runs slowly and rinses detergent water from clothes quickly wherein top load machines are just the opposite in nature. As there is no center agitator in between, it allows you to wash more clothes at a time by giving good space and hence save energy by reducing the number of rounds.
⦁ Also, the front loading machines dry the clothes faster and ultimately save energy.
⦁ Lifespan of clothes is longer in a front load machine because it washes the clothes gently and hence increases its lifespan.
⦁ Front load machine does not allow you to add extra clothes and once the washing cycle starts it can be only done after the cycle is complete. On the other hand, top load machines are flexible and can easily be paused for adding more clothes.

So, it is advisable that if you are suffering from a backache, these front load machines may cause trouble to your health.
⦁ Front load machine is comfortable to use and energy efficient device hence it is costlier than the top open washing machines.
After going through above-mentioned points, it is clear that both the kinds of machines have their own comforts and discomforts.
