What does a small, medium or large load of laundry look like in a Samsung washing machine?

Last Update Date : Mar 22. 2018

Last updated: 15 May, 2014

A 4.0 cubic foot washer can hold twenty-three 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 a washing machine.

A full load of laundry is when the drum is two thirds full. Do not fill the drum beyond 66% capacity: doing so could cause damage to the washing machine. There needs to be adequate space left in the drum for the water and for the laundry to move around.

A medium to large load is when the drum is half full.

A small load of laundry is when the drum is one third full.
