Thanks Chops

It will be the first time we have had a front loader, although Steve had one in England, but here we have always had top loaders

This is the one we have bought

Samsung 10kg

It had really good reviews and also we bought it online, with this shop they have free delivery, the come and install it all, take away your old washer for free too and also all the packaging...and we got it for $1,139, great price considering the RRP was $1,999

I loved the front-load washer we had in Germany and the ones I used in Sweden. The clothes always seemed to be so much cleaner (but the hot water cycle did do a number of the elastic of my undies). I'm sure that is no longer the case, this was years ago. Should my washer die, I'm definitely going to look at getting a front load washer.

I really like my front loader. I got used to them in Denmark in the '70s!

I think most of the modern ones only fill as much water as is needed for the size of the load; mine does. I also love the way it does cold wash. In winter when the water is icy, it adds a bit of hot so the water is cold instead of nearly frozen.

It seems that the front loader is the way to go...a lot of people seem to like the way it cleans and that it is gentler on your clothes
