how long it take to sit down & get up?
30seconds if you just dump everything in. if you put them in washer bags and separate them will take longer time.
i'm assuming your dirty clothes basket is on the floor so if you put them in bags you still have to kneel down or sit down. you can put the dirty basket on some table and do everything on table but i would assume it's the same table you will use to sort out your cleaned clothes.
a stool can be used on multiple occasions, not just for loading clothes. if your washer is in toilet, the same stool can be used to sit when you wash your shoe or clothes manually.
if in kitchen, you can sit down when washing vege or making chilli padi. unless you do that on the table.
Even you stuff into washer bag, just pickup from the basket and stuff inside the bag, zip it and throw into the WM. My hand is long enough to throw into the WM with stand up. Don't need to bend at all. The only bending action is pick the cloth from the basket.
I have experience top loader and current front loader. I don't see it as problem or difficult or any issue at all.
I think the bending problem is mostly for the tall guy.
