Queen Quilt (90x94) in GE 3.5 cu ft Front Load

can i wash a flat queen quilt (90x94) in my GE 3.5 cu ft front load washer? the quilt is fairly flat. the instructions say that the max load for linen is: 2 flat queen sheets, 2 fitted queen sheets, and 4 pillow cases. the label on quilt says to use commercial washer.

what do you think?

Only way to really know is to see if it fits in without stuffing it. My initial thought it that it might fit. The problem with trying to wash it if it doesn't fit (other than not coming out clean) is the comforter could be damaged because there isn't enough space for it to move. I would not put it in a washer with a standard agitator.

IMO, I would follow the label on the quilt, and use a commercial washer & dryer. Tried it in ours one time, Kenmore 3.5cuft. We had to end the cycle immediately and take it to the commercial laundry. Never again. It didn't work well for us.
