    Samsung front load washer and dryer purchased from Lowes about 7 months ago and I'm pretty happy with them. Wash cycles seem longer than most top loaders, though (normal cycle is 53mins, I believe).

    I haven't had the issues with knotted clothes or clothes not coming clean. Like the previous poster said, I also leave the door on the washer open so it air dries.

    thanks for the replies so far - for you maytag top load users - do your clothes seem crumpled up bad when taking them out of the wash? Thanks.

    Lowes yesterday near the light bulb section has a bunch of brand new washers and dryers lined up with minor defects or scratches for sale. Most were more than half off! Brand new!

    We have a Samsung also...had it for about a year. Great machine with no problems. We have saved quite a bit on our electricity because the clothes are almost dry when done spinning. Cut drying time in half at least!

    p.s. We didn't waste the money on the stand. I built one to the same size using 3/4 inch plywood. Painted same color...works just fine for $200 less...

    We got a high efficiency top-loader two years ago. I gotta say I agree with some of the complaints. It does leave our clothes all wrapped up and twisted together. There have been a few times when the clothes in the middle of the machine are barely even wet when done washing. We got the Whirlpool Cabrio model washer and dryer. In fact, I don't care much for the dryer either (the moisture sensor that makes a time to dry to clothes is never right so I often have damp clothes still in the dryer when it turns off)

    A friend of mine just returned to the "old" agitator style for the same basic reasons. I'm sure there are some good top loaders out there, but I wouldn't really recommend the one I got.

    My biggest complaint about front-loaders is you can't put wet towels or clothes in just to spin like you can with a top-loader. That and you can't open it after it starts washing.

    Just leave the door open a crack when done to let it dry and it's fine.

    Mine has a spin dry button. You didn't compare features...

    well no i don't have personal experience, that's why i am asking on here but a coworker of mine did have this happen to her and it didn't seem to be the only person that it ever happened to.
