 1. Washing machine recommendations and concerns?

We have a speed queen top loader.  We purchased it when one of ours broke
down and a couple of our residents requested a top loader as they could not
bend down to use the front loaders.  It is VERY dependable.  Has a quick
load cycle of about a half hour and is a bit rougher on clothes than a
front loader.  I use it often and have heard no complaints about it.  We
even purchased a speed queen dryer afterward since the washing machine was
working so well.  Yes, it uses more water, but it does not seem to be as
disposable as the other washers.  The explanation to us was that the Speed
Queen is a commercial company and so their residential machines are
basically a toned down commercial model and should last. Which they have
for at least 4 years now with no issues.
