Looking to buy a new washer, and am interested in a front loader to save energy. However, I am on a ranch and there currently tends to be a lot of horse hair in the machine that ends up on that round filter that sits on top of where the clothes are gyrated circularly. I am assuming that the front loaders might not have as visible a filter and I wonder if selecting a top loader would still be a better option in this situation.

Anyone have any suggestions?

Sounds like you have an older GE\Hotpoint washer with a dish-like filter you can clean yourself sitting on top of the agitator.

No top loader manufactured now has any such type of manual cleaning filter so you can take that out of the equation when comparing top loaders to front loaders.

The best front loader out now is made by Whirlpool, sold at ***** as either a Whirlpool Duet or Kenmore Elite (both are indentical) but it is pricey at around $1,000 for the bare bones model.
