My Laundry Question
Do front load washers have a shorter life span than top load washers?
Share a Little Background Info
Neighbor said that her applicance salesman stated front load washers only last about five years. I never heard anything like that and hope that appliances are made with better longevity, assuming they receive proper maintenance.
- Nothing until my question is answered by someone who knows the facts. Please help...
Mary Marlowe Leverette, About.com Laundry, says:
Front load washers have gained significant percentage of washer sales in the United States in the last few years due to their energy efficient qualities, load capacity and fabric care features. However, the life expectancy of a front load washer is, on average, 11 years vs. a top load washer that has an average life expectancy of 14 years.
