Re: Washing Machine and 50 htz
The inverter is Victron Multiplus 24/3000/70 - It is the 50amp version.
It easily runs the washer. On cold water washing it really doesn’t draw very much since it is just motors and pumps. Warm or hot water works well. The machines internal water heater doesn’t overload the inverter. We never use the heated dry cycle (even when on shore power). We spin dry at warp speed and let nature take care of the rest.

We have 3000 amps on the Victron multiplus and not enough to run our washer. So thinking of adding the 5000amp victron and upgrading to lithium’s when we get back to the boat. We washing at sea. It has to be calm. Very calm. Our washer has a spin cycle that goes variably 600 to 900 rpm, any yaw and it wants out! How many amps is your inverter?
