To calculate the capacity (volume) of the tub, you multiply the area by the height. Area is pi x r-squared = 3.1416 x 10-squared = 3.1416 x 100 = 314.16. Volume = 314.16 x 14 = 4398.24 cubic inches. There are 1728 cubic inches per cubic foot, so you divide 4398.24 by 1728 = 2.5452777 cubic feet.

If you do not have your manual, you can calculate your washer
capacity by following this equation.Ê Measure the radius of the
tub; from the center of tub to the outside wall of the tub.
Alternatively, measure the diameter and divide by 2. This is the
radius.Ê Multiply the radius by the radius; note this is not the
same as multiplying the radius by two. This is equivalent to the
radius squared. Multiply the value from step 4 by the depth of the
tub to find the cubic feet capacity of the washer. Multiply the
radius squared from step 3 above by pi (3.14).

they did not start rating them that way until the front loaders cam
out. However the drum is simply a cylinder and the volume of a
cylinder is easy to figure out. Volume equals pie times radius
squared times height. Don't panic I will do the math for you. Pie
is 3.14. The radius as measured on my 82980120 washer is 10.5
(0.88feet) inches from edge of drum to center of agitator. Height
is from the floor of the drum to the water line on the high
setting, which is 14.75 inches (1.23 feet). So 3.14 X (0.88feet)
squared times (1.23 feet) equals 2.99 cubic feet capacity. So it is
roughly a three cubic foot washer.
