After my old 20+ year top loader malfunctioned and flooded my hold house, I bought front loader wassher and dryer. I got the LG Brand. They are good looking, does a very good washing job and once you learn which buton to push it does fine.
I have had these since last August and so far no problem. And yes keep the washer door open to dry for awhile. They say it will smell when wet but I never hang around to find out.
