I'm researching purchase of a front loading washer and notice that at least some of the FL manufacturers cite the I.E.C. equivalent capacity. I understand what that's about, and it makes some sense when looking at FL drum capacity v. TL capacity.
My question is, do ALL the FL manufacturers use the I.E.C. method? Some don't seem to mention it, others like Whirlpool state "I.E.C." front and center. If there are two measurement systems in use out there, it becomes meaningless to try to compare since we don't know which maker uses which method. Seems to me like it's more important to be able to compare FL to FL rather than FL to TL machines. I'm sure some of you who are most familiar with the methods can comment on this.
