Have you looked at the newer frontloading washers, like the Maytags? I bought a Maytag Neptune about five years ago and I really love it. Uses much less water than a toploader, and my clothes stay new-looking much longer, as it's much gentler on them. They cost more than the toploading machines, but if you can afford it, I think they are great machines. I haven't had any trouble with mine in the five years I've had it, but I'm not a heavy user. (I'm the only user in my house.)

I have the Amana Commercial Quality Super Capacity Plus washer and dryer. When we were appliance shopping for our new house this past summer, the salesman at the appliance store told us that if we didn't want to or couldn't afford to spend the money on the front-loading washer, that he felt this was the best top-loading washer (and amazingly, it wasn't the most expensive one!). The washer has a 3.3 cu. ft. capacity and the dryer is 7.1 cu. ft. I'm not sure how that compares to the average washer & dryer, but these drums (both are stainless steel) are both HUGE. I have 4 children and that's why the salesman recommended these. I can easily wash 8 or 9 pair of adult-sized jeans in one load. If you're interested, the model numbers are: washer - ALW480DAW and dryer - ALE643REW. They're definitely worth looking at if you need a *true* large capacity washer & dryer. These are definitely larger than all the washers & dryers labeled "large capacity". Hope this helps.
