Chapter 1

Front loading washing machines clean clothes by tumbling them in the water. Here, clothes are dropped into the water beneath from the top of the tub. These washing machines consume less water and energy than regular top-loaders. They have the capacity of handling between 12 and 20 pounds of laundry. Like high-efficiency top loaders, these front loading machines also wash best with low-foaming detergent. You can stack some of them with a dryer to save floor space. These washing machines cost between $700 and $1,600.

In the event of space constraint, you can use compact washing machines that are usually 24" wide or less with a capacity of washing between 8 and 12 pounds of laundry. Its washer can be stacked with a compact dryer. They can be stored in a closet and rolled out to be hooked up to the kitchen sink. A compact washing machine costs between $450 and $1,700.
