How To Know The Right Load For Your Washer and Dryer

All washing machines are different and may have different sizes and capacities.
You might have even been using your wrong this entire time! But I have the guidelines to make sure that you are choosing the right load and cycle. These tips are going to allow you to get the best results out of your washing machine.

Load Size

1. Medium Load
A medium load in the washer is going to be when the drum is about half full. This setting could also be considered regular on your washing machine.
2. Large Load
The drum on the washing machine is going to be about three-quarters of the way full.

How Much Laundry Fits into Each Load?

Each one of these is going to be different for a machine. You can check your machines owner’s manual for better details. However, this is going to be the general rule of thumb on load sizes for each average machine.
1. Medium Load
This load of laundry will have about six pounds. It should not have much more or much less.
2. Large Load
The large load is going to hold about eleven pounds of clothing.
1. Medium Load
This load is going to be able to be scooped in a single armload or even less.
2. Large Load
This load is going to be a full armload.

How Many of Each Item Can Go In?

It is easier to picture a load size when you know how much of each type of clothing can fit into a load. This is based for all regular washing machines.
1. Medium Load
If you are using this load then you could use about six shirts, one pair of socks, two skirts, two sweaters, three pants, and three underwear.
2. Large Load
This load is going to hold about twelve shirts, six pairs of socks, two sweaters, five pants, and four underwear.
