Need a new washer and dryer

Hi! I'm sure this has been asked before so I'm sorry if it has.
We are moving into a new house and we need to get a new washer and dryer. Any recommendations for cloth friendly washers? Is it possible to get a high efficiency one and still be able to clean the diapers properly? Does anyone have any experience with one of the new top loading high efficiency ones?

Bump for you. I am not a machine expert, hope you get some good responses! So you have soft water at the new place?

If i was shopping for a new washer, I would be looking for ways I could easily customize my wash routine, like changing temp, pre-rinse option, spin speed controls, extra water feature, extra rinse option, stain treat, etc.

I have a Samsung front loader and love it. I DO NOT recommend Bosch - we had one and it was a total lemon.

I have a front loading HE by whirlpool. It works great for diapers. I first do a cold rinse with no spin (if the diapers are really soiled or stained, I may do a soak in rockin green first, but this is not usually necessary), then I do a Whites cycle with hot wash cold rinse and extra rinse. Then I dry everything except my charlie banana pockets in the dryer on medium. The washer has a sanitary cycle but it uses super hot water and I'm worried about the longevity of my diapers if I wash them with super hot water (since all the instructions recommend a regular hot or warm wash).
