Vertical axis - top loading washing machines

In horizontal axis washing machines the bearings are subjected to radial tilting moments, whilst in vertical axis washing machines the nature of the load is predominantly axial. Furthermore, in horizontal axis washing machines the drum (and so the relative support bearings) rotates during the washing and spinning cycles. For vertical axis washing machines, the drum is stationary during the washing cycle (only the agitator is in motion) and rotates during the spinning operations.
