Maytag® top-load washing machine

LARGE CAPACITY WASHERS FOR YOUR LARGEST LOADS

Large capacity washing machines from Maytag brand are built to take on big jobs, bulky items and mountains of laundry. Maytag brand offers large capacity front load, top load impeller and top load agitator washers that can meet your laundry needs. Better yet, tackle large loads with a matching Maytag® large capacity dryer.

WHAT IS CONSIDERED A LARGE CAPACITY WASHER?

Any washing machine with a capacity larger than 4.5 cu. ft. is considered a large capacity washer. These washers can reliably fit 11- 21 full-sized bath towels to wash at once. The largest top load and front load capacity washing machines you can purchase from Maytag brand will run 5.0 cu. ft. or more.

WHAT IS THE LARGEST CAPACITY TOP LOAD WASHER?

Though it varies across the industry, anything above 5.0 cu. ft. is generally considered “large capacity” for a top-load washing machine. Maytag brand has large capacity washer options with sizes up to 5.2 cu. ft. that are ready to handle your largest loads of laundry.

WHAT IS THE LARGEST CAPACITY FRONT LOAD WASHER?

Like top load washers, front load washing machines are regarded as “large capacity” when they provide at least 5.0 cu. ft. of washing capacity. Maytag brand offers large capacity front load washers up to 7.4 cu. ft. that deliver powerful cleaning for your heavy duty loads.

WHAT SIZE WASHER DO I NEED TO WASH A KING SIZE COMFORTER?

To wash a king-size comforter, you need a washing machine that is at least 4.5 cu. ft., but large capacity options up to 5 cu. ft. can provide even more room for large and bulky items, such as large dog beds or pet bedding, to move around.

WHAT IS CONSIDERED A LARGE CAPACITY DRYER?

Large capacity gas and electric dryers generally range from 5 cu. ft. to 7 cu. ft., which is large enough to handle 9–15 full-sized bath towels per load. The actual capacity can vary when browsing between top loading and front loading large capacity dryers, but both styles allow you to dry larger loads with less crowding compared to smaller dryers.

WHAT TO CONSIDER WHEN BUYING A LARGE CAPACITY WASHING MACHINE

When buying a large capacity washing machine, you should first think about what articles of clothing and bedding you are usually washing. Large capacity washing machines can handle king-size comforters, and some models come with features like the Deep Fill option, which provides you with the choice of deeper water levels. Additionally, make sure that the dimensions of the large capacity washing machine you are considering will fit in your laundry space.

IS A BIGGER WASHING MACHINE BETTER?

Which size washing machine you need is determined by two main factors: the size of your laundry room and how much capacity you require. Measure your space to see whether a larger washing machine would fit and pay attention to whether your loads are large enough to need the extra capacity. Note that the larger a washing machine is, the more water it tends to use.

WHAT IS CONSIDERED A LARGE LOAD OF LAUNDRY?

Because there are many different ways to measure a large load of laundry, there is no one official industry standard as to what constitutes a large load. However, one way to think about a large load of laundry is a load containing 11-21 full-sized bath towels. Consequently, a large capacity washing machine should be able to handle this large load size.

LARGE CAPACITY TOP LOAD WASHERS WITH AN AGITATOR

Take on your large loads with plenty of space to wash your household’s towels, blankets and other bulky items. Agitator washers often use plenty of water to clean clothes against a tall, vertical spindle in the center of the washer, making it a great option if you regularly wash large loads of laundry.

LARGE CAPACITY TOP LOAD WASHERS WITH AN IMPELLER

Impellers use low water levels and create gentle friction between garments to get your clothes clean. The low water levels optimize the friction of clothes rubbing against each other to gently loosen dirt and stains to deliver a thorough clean. An impeller also frees up extra space in the washer tub for bulky items like blankets.

LARGE CAPACITY FRONT LOAD WASHERS

Front load washers use a tumbling wash action to clean your laundry. Front load washers typically use less water and longer wash times for a more concentrated clean, so you can use less detergent with each load.
