When you talk about the size of a washing machine, you can aim at different aspects; the actual dimensions or the amount of fill weight. Both depend on the model of washing machine. The fill weight indicates how many pounds of laundry you can put in the drum per wash. This starts at about 6 kg and can go up to 12 kg. The size of a washing machine differs (largely) because of the type of washing machine; top loading or front loading. A front-loading washing machine usually has a height of 85 cm, a width of 60 and a depth between 60 and 70 cm. Top loaders have a height of 90 cm, a width of 40 cm and a depth of about 60 cm. As a result, top loaders often have a smaller fill weight.
