Re: Washing Machine and 50 htz

We have started using the inverter this year. Nice to have the freedom from the generator.
We have a Bosch washer and the peake consumption is about 2500 watts for 3 minutes at the beginning of the cycle while it is heating the water. Not all washers are as efficient.
We have the Victron MultiPlus Charger inverter and a 30 amp charger.
If you have the Victron Multi's it is important to remember that when it is connected to shore power it will shift frequency to the frequency of the shore power source. That could be a bad surprise for your washer or microwave. Best to have a dedicated small charger for when you are on shore power and the ability to keep your Victron Multi electrically separate from shore power unless you deliberately flip a switch.
