Electrolux front loading washer, very good washer

Front loading washers have to be cared for properly

I don't even know where the filter is on my top loader. I never needed to use vinegar and I wash every other weekend and sometimes forget the clothes in the washer with no problems.

Granted the front loaders are way more fancy and look appealing to the eyes BUT it seems like alot of work to care for. Besides pushing the washer back to the wall when it spins that's about the only thing I do with it. I was too cheap to buy the base to stop it from sliding. Guest don't need to see what Bertha looks like. She chills in the basement next to her hubby Ben the dryer.LOL

Girl you got the platinum brand of HEsBig smile.  One day I would love to own one.  Plus you probably use the Miele detergents.  It's crazy expensive over here in the US.  Do you have the one that has the hot water tank inside the machine or do all models have that feature?

The top loader doesn't have a filter AFAIK unless you attach a crude filter to the hose to filter fibers from the discharged water to help reduce the chance of your pipes getting clogged up.  Honestly front loaders aren't that high maintenance.  But maybe I am biased because I am anal in maintaining a machine that cost a small fortune.

Ah I didn't know that. Yes, it has a heater since the water going in is only cold. If you can, get the vacuum cleaner too. It is GREAT

i had a front loader and the smell comes from the water tight seal that is needed to prevent leaks during use, it also prevents ANY moisture from evaporating if you make the mistake and close it after the wash. 
i had to run many a bleach cycle after absentmindedly closing the washer after i was done. they could easily fix this by auto blowing the thing down with air like a dryer whenever the door is closed to dry it out.

I think the Kenmore Elite and LG top loaders are the same machine because they just had a recall on both.  I received a notice about not being able to wash waterproof stuff Confused

But, I love my Kenmore Elite washer.  A technician was sent out to fix the glitch. We leave the washer open and run a clean cycle once a month with bleach to reduce the chances of mildew smell.
