I need to purchase a new washing machine and I am considering a front loader but I need some advice.

My 20 year old Kenmore washing machine has died (a $500 repair would bring it back to life) and I like the idea of the front loader washing machine's energy efficiency for a replacement. I also want a reliable machine (another that lasts 20 years would be good!) We are a family of five and our washing machine typically does 7 or 8 loads a week. BUT everything I have read (lots of google and an AskMefi from 2006) suggests that reliability is an issue with just about every brand out there. Any washing machine repair/sales people out there with advice on buying a reliable front loader? Any recent personal experiences with a front loading machine, good or bad? Thanks very much!
