This is the most frequent question that pops up to laundry business owners. Which one is better, top loading washing machine or front loading washing machine? There are some things to consider when choosing washing machines for your business. You have to think about your budget and your laundry room spaces are the most important factor to consider.

Top Loading Washing Machine vs Front Loading Washing Machine [Comparison]

Which one is better, top loading washing machine or front loading washing machine?

Efficiency

Front loading washing machine is more efficient than the top loading washing machine. It cleans better because the wash cycle is longer.  However, it consumes more electricity because of the longer wash cycle.

Load Capacity

Front loading washing machine can accommodate more than the top loading washing machine. This is because it has a larger washtub than the other one. Most top loading washing machine has an agitator and this is the reason why its washtub is smaller.

Wash Cycle

As I mentioned above, front loading washing machine takes longer period of time than the top loading washing machine.

Spin Cycle

Front loading washing machine can spin for up to 1,000 revolutions per minute (rpm). While the top loading washing machine usually has a maximum of 650 revolutions per minute (rpm) only. But this should not be a big deal because spin feature is to get rid of excess water on clothing.

Clothing Life

This may be the best part. Front loading washing machine has lesser wear and tear effect than that of the top loading washing machine. Good news for you, owners of this type.

Cost

Front loading washing machine is much more expensive than top loading washing machine. This is because of the system used to clean clothes. Front loading washing machine uses Tumble system which has a horizontal washtub. Top loading washing machine uses Agitator or Pulsator system which rotates a vertical washtub.

I think I may want to tackle both systems in future posts. What do you think?

Reliability or Warranty

Since front loading washing machine is more expensive, I expect that is has a longer life span than top loading washing machine. It has lesser problems. Top loading washing machine normal problems are leaky hoses and broken belts.

So before you buy your equipment, make sure to check the warranty period even if they are listed in the top 10 brands of commercial laundry equipment. It is one way to check if the equipment is time tested. Because of course, manufacturers will not give you one-year warranty if they are not sure with their product.

    There is a real justification for something different to the current right wing media monopoly. It is a fact that the largest part of the world’s media is controlled by right wing moguls. Their purpose is to further the cause of capitalism and retain the planet’s differentials between rich and those in need. Left Insider offers left wing articles from reputable news sites like Red Pepper and Buzz Feed etc. We all own the right to maximise our own qualities and we all have the obligation to assist others maximise theirs.
