I'm so upset. My washer sprung a leak today. It's a 13 year old Maytag and after the last $200 service call the serviceman said to think about getting a new one the next time. Since they are visable from my kitchen I'd like to get a matching set. The dryer is over 10yrs. old. Can anyone recommend a good buy? I'm looking for a top loading machine. Unless someone can sway me to consider a front loader. Do they really save you any $$ on water/elec.? I do about 5 loads every other day, and at least 5 towels everyday. We're a family of 4 adults.
