Washing Performance:

Front-loading washing machines perform extremely better than top-loading washing machines for washing performance. Front-loading Dexter washing machines have adjustable wash cycles and more features than top-loading machines. The Dexter front loaders use gravity instead of an internal agitator to clean clothes, so there is less chance of clothes being damaged or wrinkled during wash. Front load cleans better, remove stains easier and keep your clients’ clothes looking better. They will come back for more.

Energy Efficiency:

Dexter front-loading washing machines are among the most energy-efficient washing machine. Front loaders have higher spin speeds, so they are able to get more water out of clothes in the spin cycle than top loaders can. According to a Consumer Search report as of March 2010, “The majority of top-loading washing machines have a spin speed between 500 or 600 rpm, while front loaders typically have speeds 1,000 rpm and up.” This means less drying time is needed for your new Dexter front loaders and therefore less electricity is being used per wash cycle. Conventional top-loading washing machines are the least energy efficient, as they require more water and electricity per wash. A typical top loader uses 50 gallons of water per load and maintains a slump. While a new Dexter front loader of the same size uses only 20.3 gallons with a slump –free design. Changing to front loaders can save you a bundle on your utility cost.  Since the Dexter front loader uses less water it takes less time to extract and thus less electricity usages as well.

Vend Price:

Since your replacing a single load top loader with a double load front loader you can essentially charge up to double the price per load. Your customer will gladly pay more for faster cleaner laundry.


Front loaders tend to operate more quietly than top loaders, since there is less of a tendency to imbalance and the agitation that you would normally hear from a top loader is gone.
