We need a new one and I am having a terrible time picking one because according to reviews there is not a good one out there.

We need a front loader just to conserve water. I keep reading about mold issues, part issues, expensive maitenance. Ack!

Does anyone have a machine they love?

I've had my front loader since 2005. It is an HE4T. It's great for everything from VERY dirty cloth diapers (I use sanitary mode) to whites (there is a Whitest Whites setting) to hand-washing bras and things like that.

We haven't had to do any maintenance so far.

I like that it has its own heater to make the water really hot if you need it.

Bosch. Love that machine. As the pp mentioned above this one also has a built in heater for extra heat. It also has a wee drawer on the bottom to collect any bits - small change etc. - so it doesn't get caught in the actual machine/motor. It costs a bit more than others but the extra features are worth it.

Does the sanitizer shorten the life of your dipes?

We are to have the HE3T delivered tomm, but the more reviews I read the more I feel like I am going to cancel it.
