Kenmore top load washer capacity for King size comforters

I want a top load Kenmore washer that can wash a king size comforter. I see 26-26002 has 4.3 capacity listed in one place and 3.6 capacity in another. Which is correct? What size do I need for King size bedding?

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

The Kenmore washer model 110.26002* is rated at 3.6 cu. ft. I do not know of any top loading washer that could handle a King size comforter safely. A front loading washer would be a more favorable washer to use for King size comforters. Even a front loading washer could become unbalanced due to a King size comforter and cause the washer to shake and vibrate violently.

We recommend using a commercial grade front loading laundry mat washer to wash King size comforters to prevent any damage to the comforter. Washing a King size comforter in a top load washer could damage the comforter and/or washer.

I hope this is helpful. If I may be of further assistance as more details become available, please reply to this post.
