Along with empty weight, you'd also have to factor in weight while in
use. Top loaders fill up with a lot more water than front loaders.
If you haven't seen how little water goes into the new front loaders,
you'd be amazed. On the new LG ones, it's just a stream of water
coming down from the top, about the size of a couple pencils. So, I'd
bet that the max weight on a front loader is considereably less than a
top loader, but I don't have any actual data.
