While purchasing a washing machine, the first question that comes to your mind is which washing machine is best: front load or top load? While both these variants are energy-efficient and save time, there are various features and functionality that make the two different.

Difference Between Top Loading and Front Loading Washing Machines

The basic difference between the a top-load and a front-load washing machine is the way drum is placed and in the working. With advancement in technology and the introduction of agitator systems, top load machines have come a long way since they were first introduced. In a front load machine, the basket is placed horizontally and doesn’t have an agitator. The paddles on the side of basket help remove dirt from your clothes. On the other hand, in a top load machine, the basket is placed vertically, and an agitator swirls the clothes in alternate directions to remove dirt.

Typically, front load machines have a higher capacity and use less detergent and water too. Price-wise, top load washing machines are cheaper than front load machines.
