Why Front Load Washers are More Efficient

by Guest on Mar 29, 2011

If you have been looking into front load washers, there are several benefits that are associated with this type of washing machine which help it to be more efficient than other washing machine types. Let's get to the reasons why this type of washing machine is more efficient than the competition.

The first reason why front load washers are more efficient is because of the horizontal axis of the washer design. In a traditional vertical type of washing machine, large amounts of water are needed in order to fill the drum properly in order to effectively wash clothing. In horizontal front load washers, less water is needed in order to wash your clothes because of the tumbling motion of the drum. The horizontal drum swishes the water and circulates it more effectively, which causes the front load washers to need less water than its vertical washing machine predecessor.

Another reason why front load washers are more efficient is because of its larger drum design. Because of the drum size, front load washers do not contain an agitator like vertical washing machines do. The agitator takes up a lot of space in the drum of a vertical washing machine, which limits the amount of clothing you can wash. With a larger drum size, front load washers are able to effectively clean a larger amount of clothing, which makes these washers much more efficient. This means that you can wash more clothing with less water, which is much more efficient than other washing machine types.

Front load washers do such a good job of cleaning clothes because of the tumbling motion design, which makes them require less washing detergent than vertical washers. This makes the front load washer efficient as your laundry detergent can last much longer than it has in the past, helping you to save money in the long run. Since these front load washers use less water, wash more clothes, and use less detergent, they are often efficient enough to receive the energy star requirement. These types of energy star washers can give you a tax break at the end of the year as they use less energy than traditional vertical washing machines.

Front load washers also often come with many different features which allow the washer to know how moist the laundry is in order to calculate how long the clothes need to stay in the dryer. These types of features can help to save money and time as front load washers can become very smart appliances to help make your life much easier. These front load washers can help to make any laundry situation stress free and less frustrating as you can get a large amount of clothing washed in a short amount of time without having to make frequent trips back to the laundry room. Not only will you use less water and energy, but this can translate into savings each month as your utility bills go down due to your washing machine. As you can see, front load washers are much more efficient than the older top loading washers of years past.
