How to tell if you're overloading your washing machine


Putting too much in your washing machine can stop it from cleaning your clothes properly. 

If you regularly wash large loads or your clothes aren’t coming out as clean as you’d like, take a look at this guide to find out if you’re trying to wash too much. 



Putting too much in your machine causes all the clothes to clump together. This stops water and detergent from reaching everything, so some clothes will come out dirty or not completely cleaned. 

You should always try to have a five inch space between your clothes and the drum when fully filled with a mixed load. An easy way to check is whether you can comfortably fit a balled-up fist above your clothes, you’re good to go. 


Hopefully that’s everything you need to know about overloading you washing machine.
