|We have a Kenmore Front Loader and stack able Kenmore Dry. We have had them for over 9 years and I loving them plus they have been great for my diapers.
I would recommend looking for front loader with a extra spin and rinse features, especially if you are in Ontario Canada. These will help with the adjustment to our wonderful new hourly prices that just started in May 2010 depending where you live. I am so glad we have both our washer and dishwasher already have these features, they have been such a blessing over the years. I have set the times go to bed and wake up to clean dishes and a fresh load of laundry all while I was asleep.
Good luck with your search
