To whatever family size you have, today’s washing machine comes in all shapes and sizes that can perfectly suit every household’s requirements. But it should be kept in mind that if you select a washer and dryer with a smaller capacity, you are simply wasting time, effort and energy. This is so because you’ll need to run multiple wash cycles. Likewise, if you pick a new washing machine with oversized capacity, you’ll have to bear increased running costs for water and power which you aren’t using.
Either you are shopping online or offline, our experts understand well that picking the right size of the washer and dryer can be challenging. In the case of online, you’ll have to bank on the specifications, capacity and measurement that is provided by the manufacturer. This sometimes becomes difficult to envision in one’s own situation. When it comes to offline shopping, you can properly look into the new washer and dryer personally.
Washing Machine Capacity in Kilograms – What Does it Mean?
Either an online or a conventional store, if you see a washing machine having 7kg or 9kg capacity, then it means that this weight doesn’t include the machine heaviness. In fact, this capacity shows the actual weight of the laundry load which the washing machine can efficiently manage and clean, without utilizing excess water, power and time.
It should be kept in mind that the machines with higher capacity can bear larger weight than the smaller ones. So, before making a decision, it is necessary to ensure that it will perfectly fit into the specified space.
Do We Measure Washing Machine’s Capacity in Wet or Dry Clothes?
Anybody can easily understand that walking in a thunderstorm in heavier pant can make it much weightier when wet. You can figure this out by an example. For instance, five wet towels will weigh much heavier compared to the five dry towels. And this is also a fact that we should always put dry clothes in a washer and dryer.
So, when you select a machine that has the 7kg or 9kg capacity, you must know that it can efficiently clean 7kg or 9kg of dry clothes. It is quite obvious that these clothes will get heavier when they’ll become wet but a machine can effectively manage all this.
How Many Clothing Items Make Specific Kilogram?
The best way to measure laundry load is to weigh them personally. You can do this either by standing on a set of scale along with carrying a full load in a basket and then subtracting your weight. You can also do this by weighing every item on a kitchen scale and then adding up their total weight.
So, by following the above guidelines, you can easily decide as to which size of the washing machine will best suit your needs.
How to Wash Heavy Loads?
