Front Load vs. Top Load - which type of washing machine is right for you.
The first step in choosing a washing machine is narrowing down your choice is to decide whether you would prefer a front-loading washing machine or a top-loading washing machine.
Front-loaders work by turning your washing over and over in a tumbling action, repeatedly picking up and dropping your clothes into the water. Generally, front loaders tend to use less water and detergent and are gentler on clothes.
Top loaders either use agitators, which are devices that twist and turn your washing around, or impellers, which are raised discs that create turbulence in your wash water. Although top loaders tend to use more water than front loaders, they are generally cheaper to buy, weigh less and wash clothing faster.
Dryers to match your washing machine.
Not only is The Good Guys your go-to destination for washing machines, but we have all the best dryers to match your front loader or top loader that suits your laundry needs.
Select from a great range of heat pump dryers, condenser dryers, sensor dryers, and vented dryers from leading brands including Fisher & Paykel, Haier, Miele, Asko and Electrolux. Tip: for your front loader, the best matching dryer would either be a heat pump or condenser dryer as these can either be stacked on top using a stacking kit, or sitting on the floor next to your washer for a seamless fit.
