I know this has been discussed before but what is the price point break for standard size front loaders. Suggestions welcome experiences brands vs brand vs cost. Something I have not researched yet. Potential savings water consumption energy ect Thanks in advance. MSG can you let this run a few days here before booting it to the green room? I hoping for a larger viewer paticipation?
