  That washer is about 14 years old. Capacity is only listed in the original sales information. To determine capacity, measure the tub depth in inches, multiply by 3.14, multiply that by the radius (inches) squared and divide by 1728 to get cubic feet.

I think most washers of that vintage were rated for 20 lbs of dry laundry.

  A 3 to 4 cubic foot capacity machine will hold 12-16lbs, a 4 to 5 cubic foot will hold 16-20lbs.
