Is it better in the long run to buy a front load or top load washer. Noise reduction important as it is in a closet in an open floor plan house, kitchen, master bedroom and living area close by. I've read front loaders are gentle on clothes and extract water better but are really loud. My husband is more concerned with repairs. Our Maytag Bravo error code F:51 has finally reached the point that tightening the screw under the drum doesn't work anymore. Looking at the Samsung WA52J8700AW because I like my Samsung refrigerator and dryer. Thoughts?
