In this manner, what size washing machine do I need?
Generally speaking, 4 cubic feet is enough to wash 12-16 pounds of laundry. A larger capacity unit at 4.5 cubic feet can hold up to 20 pounds of laundry. A general rule of thumb is a queen size comforter can fit into 3.5 cubic feet and a king size comforter fit into a 3.8 cubic feet machine.
Furthermore, what size washer do I need for a family of 4? For a family of four, a medium size washing machine (around 7.5 to 8.5 kg) should normally be enough. That's the equivalent of around 35 T-Shirts per wash. If you've got a small household (1-2 adults), then a small washing machine (around 5kg-7kg) could be enough.
Considering this, how big is a 4.2 cubic foot washer?
A regular-capacity washer between 3.1 and 4.0 cubic feet will let you load in 12 to 16 pounds of laundry, while a larger-capacity model between 4.2 and 4.5 cubic feet can hold up to 20 pounds or more.
What is considered a large load of laundry?
A Small Load usually fills about 1/3 of your machine. A Medium Load fills the machine to about 1/2 full. A Large Load is around 3/4 full.
