What Does A Small, Medium, Or Large Load Of Laundry Look Like In A Front Load Washing Machine?

Last Update date : 2016.01.13

Laundry Loads for Washers

A 4.0 Cubic Foot washer can hold 23, 24" x 44" bath towels. However, as laundry loads are not typically comprised of items that are the exact same size and weight, it is difficult to offer an exact number of garments that can be placed in the washing machine.

Note: It is important to pay close attention to load sizes. Overloading the unit can lead to the unit not draining, not spinning properly, water and detergent leaks, poor cleaning performance, along with other issues.

The general load size standards for all Samsung washers are:
