The Samsung 9100 Series front load washing machine boasts the world's largest capacity at 5.6 cubic feet. Samsung says it is the largest in its class and can wash three times the laundry in one-third of the time, even capable of tackling two 6-pound polyester king-sized comforters.
ConsumerReports agrees that the Samsung 9100 Series has the largest capacity, about 28 pounds, of the front-loaders tested, and is impressive at washing. It goes on to say a machine needs to hold 25 pounds or more of laundry to earn an "excellent" capacity score. Machines with a 25-pound capacity can hold 12 to 15 pairs of men's jeans.
