Front Loader or Top Loader

Our washer and dryer is on its last legs.  I think it was purchased about 20 years ago.  Its a cheap stacked unit.  Very small, breaks down alot.  We are thinking of replacing it with two good modern units.  However, there are a million options.  Do you go with a top loader or a front loader?  Katie thinks the front-loader is better, but we need the power of the internet to help figure this out.

Interesting review of washers here. It says front-loaders are better because they are gentler on clothes and have better spin cycles.  However, it also says that they are more expensive and have spotty reliability.  Man, this article is making me more confused than knowledgeable.

This article is about front-loaders. It says they have larger capacity, but that’s not what I saw at sears.  Most of the front-loaders were 3.8 cubic feet.  The top loader got as big as 4.5.

Shoot, I gttoa get to meetings.  Any advice on an innovative, energy efficient washer/dryer?  We want something that will last a long time and be great.
