5 On Friday: Laundry Edition

    It's coming!!!

This week I told you about 
Christmas Gifts For Coffee Lovers

So, I need some help....
We are buying a new washer and dryer.
I can't decide between a front or top loader. Or a brand. Or anything.  Any advice would be great. 
I have to say I lean towards a top loader. This will be in our basements, so it's a little more damp and I keep hearing about mold issues. Plus, top loaders are in my comfort zone.

When you see these in person, they are so small! Then you look in the drum and it holds sooooo much laundry. I kept going back and lifting the lid. I am tempted just because of how compact it looks, but holds so much.  And the pair is UNDER what we want to spend.

The Electrolux Perfect Steam Washer is higher than we want to spend, but I soooo want to splurge on it. I keep reminding myself that I shouldn't buy it because of how it looks. I also am not sure about a front loader in our basement.

Sorry the images aren't the same, but I think you get the idea.  I read some great reviews about this model and its on sale right now.

I had a Whirlpool Cabrio top loader before I moved here and loved it. I thought about going with that again, but since I have the opportunity to go with someone new I figured I would take it.
I just don't know. Any advice would be great.

Thanks for stopping by Off The Vine!

  1. I have had both styles, and I much prefer the top loading model. I think it holds more and never gets gunky gaskets. Good luck
