How much laundry fits in a washing machine depends on the size of the washing machine. For this, we look at the number of kg of fill weight. There are washing machines with a fill weight starting at 6 kg, and this can go up to 12 kg. There are some exceptions with a fill weight of 17 kg. We recommend that you do not exceed the maximum load for your washing machine; this will not get all your laundry equally clean and you could damage the appliance. If you don’t know or can’t remember the maximum load for your washing machine, we recommend you consult the user manual. Don’t have it anymore? Then you can often find out by googling the model.
