What to Look for in a Washing Machines for Large Family


Since packing your washer to the brim means your clothes won’t get as clean as they should and under-filling it means a waste of energy and water you should choose a washing machine that matches your overall load. Usually measured in cubic  feet a normal washing machine should have a drum with 3 to 4 cubic feet of space. A super capacity washer dryer machine can have up to 6 feet of cubic space.

You may not know how much space your laundry takes  up, but you should know that a washer with a 3 to 4 cubic capacity can wash up to 12 pounds of laundry. If you have a washer with  smaller or larger capacity you can always adjust down or up.


To loosen the dirt and clean the clothes every washing machine has some agitation. when you check inside the washer you’ll find different types of agitators. For instance,in the front load washer you’ll see a big drum with fins protruding from all sides. However, this type of agitation also means longer cycles to ensure your clothes are thoroughly cleaned. Normal loaders with all the agitators are known to shorten the longevity of the  garment and can hinder you from washing larger and bulky items such as comforters.

Drum Material

Since your clothes are about to get washed inside your washer you want to ensure that nothing will snap them. Considered the smoothest and the most durable choice for a washing machine, they are often found in high end washer dryer units. While porcelain enameled steel tubs are also popular they are less expensive. However, overtime porcelain can wear or chip away leaving the steel exposed resulting in rust and stains for snagging clothes. Less commonly seen but sometimes used in low or middle range machines, are heavy duty plastic wash tub

Electricity and Gas

To supply the hot air that will dry your clothes you’ll need a gas dryer with a heater that’s powered by electricity or fueled by natural gas. If your laundry room does not have a natural gas line you may need to connect one. While a gas line may initially cost more if you need to pay to have it installed there may be an additional fee charged. This may depend on the cost of utility in your area.

Since electric  dryers don’t need a separate plug line you just need to plug it in and it’s ready for operation. While electric dryers cost less than their gas counterparts, they normally have longer drying times.

Capacity of the dryer

It’s important to shop for a dryer that’s sized enough to handle the capacity of your washer. If not, you’ll have lots of wet clothes ready for drying but  which you cannot fit in your dryer. The rule of the thumb is to find a dryer that has twice the cubic capacity of the washing machine. However, the increased efficiency in the dryer machine means that you won’t strictly follow the formula. If your washer has a cubic capacity of 3.5 to 4.0 feet, choose a dryer that’s 7 cubic feet. This will also provide you with enough space to dry larger items.

Laundry Room

Last but not least you need to consider the size of your laundry room
