    Hi all. Can anyone confirm or deny if a washing machine will fit in the boot of a MS?

    I've gotta pick one up from Currys this afternoon for my elderly parents and I'm thinking it won't!

    Thanks all for any advice!

    It really depends on the size of the washing machine doesn’t it?

    You presumably know the dimensions of the Model S cargo area.

    All washing machines are a similar size aren't they?

    No I don't know the MS gap between boot floor and roof

    You will probably need to remove all the packaging, then its dimensions will be about 60x60x90cm. With seats folded it should fit.

    Silly question time, but why not get it delivered by Currys?

    Whenever I have bought a new one, I get them to take away the old one, fit the new one, take away all the packaging, all for pennies.

    Yes, I've had one in the back, it was an easy fit.

    it will nearly go in sideways depending on packaging, but seats down it is an easy fit lengthways.

    Maybe a front load one.. they are smaller. The new top load one is pretty huge.. I just got one delivered yesterday.

    True; normal UK under counter style will fit easy, anything close to the American style machines would need measurement.

    There is a lot of space in the back of the S though and you get a huge opening to work with so even allowing for the drop from the lower edge to the floor you'd be amazed what you can get in there.

    Well, considering you can get a washing machine into the back of a 2002 Fiat Punto I would be more than disappointed if you couldn't get at least 2 washing machines into the back of a MS! (not in the packaging I might add)

    I don't think you could get a washing machine AND a Nissan Micra into the back of a MS ... but on second thoughts ... maybe? :)

    Sounds like a Blue Peter challenge.

    Plumbing them in is a bigger challenge. The Model 3 doesn't even have a cold supply.

    But at least your spin speed would be 100,000 rpm ;)

    Is it just me but turning left during the spin cycle seems to be much more difficult than turning right?

    Just to close this off. The machine (plus packaging) went in just fine. It was tight between the rear seat lip and the roof entrance, but it was all good. Thanks all.
