Yup I just washed mine last week. I have a Bosch front loader and love it, no problems.

I would struggle to fit that in my 7.5kg front loader. When it's wet, the doona will be heavier too. Can you take it to the laundromat instead and use their big machines?
On a side note, we have a Samsung 7.5kg frontloader. Best machine we've ever had. An average load takes 1hr20min, which flies by anyway. It's quiet, and washes so well. My only regret in this purchase was that we didn't get the 10kg one rather than the 7.5kg.

I've got an LG front loader 7.5kg and my king duvet fits in there fine...and mine has an 18min quick wash for freshening clothes and a 30min cycle. Ivr never used a longer cycle and clothes are always clean....so there goes the myth of long washes!
Have only ever had front loaders...top loaders are hard for shorties to reach in and get wet clothes out

I dislike front loaders because they don't seem to get things clean. My mil has one and fil's work clothes don't come out anywhere as clean looking or smelling as DH's do from my top loader. Is it the machine? Or is it possible she is just overloading it?
And sorry for crashing!

For those that use the 30min cycle the guy in Harvey Norman tried to tell me that using a 30min cycle with more than 5 items of clothing will stuff the motor. I always used the 30min on my last one and it was still going strong after 6-7years it was just that the removalist's broke the handle off it after we moved and a stabilizer so we replaced it.

Our front loader has a pause button so can add forgotten items.
Our king size doona just (only just!) fits in our 7kg front loader. Sometimes goes off balance, but usually when I forget to put in on bulky wash setting.

Our king size doona fits in our 8 kilo front loader no worries. When we had a top loader the king size doona didn't fit, couldn't even wash the kids single doonas in the top loader as it always unbalanced.

As I mentioned in my other post, it washes the kids doonas which is a big plus - much easier than taking them to the dry cleaners every time one of them vomits in the bed etc. Love that it washes blankets etc too. Our old machine would unbalance with a doona or blankets etc.
Big fan of our new front loader and I was so worried when we got it! Spent ages reading and researching and making sure we were doing the right thing!
