What is the Frigidaire Front Load Washer FAFW3517KW tub capacity?
Calculate Washer Tub capacity
To determine your washer tub capacity please take two simple measurements:
1. Use the ruler to measure the depth of the tub (indicated by the red line on the diagram)
2. Now find the distance accross the tub, the diameter (the green line on the diagram). Note that some horizontal tubs have a narrow opening.
In this case make the measurements INSIDE the tub.
Tub Depth: in. Tub Diameter: in.
The Frigidaire Front Load Washer FAFW3517KW tub capacity is ... cubic feet.
DOE (Department of Energy) vs. I.E.C. (International Efficiency Consortium) tub capacity values
The tub capacity calculator provides result in the DOE cubic feet which are CONVENTIONAL, i.e. normal cubic feet.
The front loading appliance manufacturers prefer to use IEC cubic feet in their specification. IEC capacity
in a front loader is the equivalent of the laundry size of a top loading washer and usually result in a higher number.
For instance, a 4.7 cu. ft EC capacity transaltes into 4.1 conventional cu. ft for some washers and into 4.2 cu. ft for others.
There is no simple multiplier that can be applied to an IEC value to translate it into DOE capacity.
Make sure to use the manufacturer's part number when ordering a replacement.
