just got myself a Maytag top load HE washer and it sucks so far.
-apparently you have to use only the HE type of detergent which limits your choices of brand/fragrance
-the lid locks during wash so I can only hope everything is working right
-you have to throw in the soap first, then the clothes then turn it on.
I liked it better when I could turn the water on, throw in the soap to dissolve and bubble up and then the laundry
next time around, I'll be getting the top loader with the glass lid. I'm a little leary of every getting a front door loader because of the possibility of leaks.
