    We have a tiny 5 kg machine. I hate it it is way too small, but works do I am not going to complain.

    My 5.5 is on the way out so we're looking at a 10kg. 2 adults, 3 kids and a farm - makes lots of dirty clothes.

    We have a 10kg top loader for 2 adults and 2 kids. It's great for washing bedding, but bigger than we need for anything else as I like to wash whites / darks every second day anyway.

    10kg front loader for 3 kids and 2 adults (though one is a farmer who I swear just goes and rolls in the dirt several times a day!) and I love it.

    I have an 8kg front loader (can not wait till it dies and I can get a larger one ) the only reason we got this one was our old house had a built in laundry so we had to have a front loader to fit the small space

    An equivalent kg front loader won't fit as much as a top loader. I didn't realise this when we bought our 7.5kg front loader (upgraded from a 5.5kg top loader) and it probably only fits 1-2 more towels.

    I'd go 8kg top loader or 10kg front loader.
