Maytag WASHER / GE DRYER CAPACITY ??


I am thinking of upgrading Maytag LAT8435AAE large capacity top load washer approx 12 years old and a much older GE Dryer 30 + years model D530VWX.
Not sure where I can find the old capacity versus new. I know I can measure the drums but is the agitator part of the drum area or does anyone have specs on these two versus new front load combos.
The family/ 3 teenagers has a growing demand for clean laundry so I want to account for future demands.

I am like you I don’t know any of the capacity figures but I can say that the GE front-loader has a much larger tub than anything else GE has (except for maybe the Harmony) an I believe the other GE top-loaders have tubs just as large or larger tub as that old Maytag of yours. I am almost certain the front-loader will have a much larger tub than what you have. I know this is not the answer you were looking for but maybe it will help.

As a side note that Maytag washer of yours was the best washer ever made in my opinion, I would hate to see it go. By best I mean most dependable that front-loader (any front-loader) will be a better machine in terms of performance and efficiency.

Thanks again. The dryer I have overhauled several times since acquiring used with the house 20 years ago. The Washer has been bullet proof so far. Just thinking long term as I upgrade the laundry area.
