Will a King size 50/50 down/feather doona fit in a 7.5kg Front loader?
It goes in my 7kg top loader along with the cover, but from reading reviews on the web this might not be so with a front loader.. am I being mislead?
My top loader decided the on switch is broken so we are looking at getting a front loader (Samsung 7.5) as it's the cost of repairs.

NOOOOO! Dont do it! Lol. Front loaders are horrible. Believe me. Do some research and have a look at the pros AND cons of top and front loaders. Always worth shopping around before buying.

It will probably fit, but you have to take into account the weight when wet (the 7.5kg). I have a 10kg front loader and my king sized winter doona only just fits and causes the machine to become off balance sometimes during the cycle.

I have a 7.5kg front loader and have washed my king size doona in it no problems. We have an Electrolux.
I prefer front loaders

I love front loaders! Top loaders wreck my clothes by stretching them out of shape. Front loaders take ages but you get used to it.
But we overloaded our front loader once and damaged the barrel. Be careful with the doona.

But those knickers and socks aren't going anywhere before tomorrows wash in my house!!
Never had a problem transporting my washer before.

I would never buy a front loader either. I found them really annoying when I lived overseas. I haven't noticed my out of shape clothes from a top loader? Maybe use delicate cycle But I do know top loaders don't clean as well.
