Need a suggestion


Any advice on what size tankless electric water heater I should use to provide hot water for just a washing machine. I could go with a 10 gallon electric but would like to conserve space. This will be a temporary install for maybe 8 months. Any and all suggestions would be great.

I'm not sure what type of laundry you will be washing, but we haven't used hot water in the washing machine for years just doing household laundry. I did find though that I had to connect water pressure to the hot side of the new front loader to make the washer think it had hot water hooked up.

Front load or top load? I suspect my front load uses less than 10 gallons total per fill. Perhaps on a warm was this 40% hot. I would think just about any tankless would supply that. Rinses are all cold water.
