What’s the ‘kg’ in washing machines and why does it matter?
Washing Machine kg explained

Washing machine weights – kg explained.

One of the first and most important things to consider before buying a washing machine is its capacity, which may also be called size.

The standard measurement of the capacity of a washing machine is the kilogram(kg) and there’s usually a lot of confusion about it. Today, I want to break it down for you.

What does the ‘kg’ of a washing machine mean?

The label kg of a washing machine indicates the maximum weight of dry clothes that the washing machine can clean, optimally.

Do note that a washing machine can wash clothes heavier than the weight indicated but that the job would not be as neat as it should be and typically the machine will consume way more water, time and energy (electricity units) than it is meant to spend.

How do you know the weight of your clothes?

This is another common question we get from customers at Kweli.shop, and some people even suggest you get a weighing scale, but well, you might not have to.

Automatic washing machines have built-in weight sensors that determine the weight of the clothes loaded in the machine.

You may as well determine the weight of your clothes using estimates. For example, knowing that 5 shirts weigh about 1kg when dry, you can estimate that in a 7kg washing machine you can wash up to 35 shirts at the same time.

Is it all about the kgs?

The simple answer is NO. In fact, more times than not you will have to be concerned about the bulkiness of your clothes, than their actual weight. This is because clothes need not completely fill up the washing machine drum if they are to be cleaned properly.
