basket Size:  23.25L x 23.00W x 22.62H
1 sq FT = 144 sq IN (12x12)
1 cu FT = 1748 cu IN (12x12x12)

23.25L x 23.00W x 22.62H = 12096 cu IN / 1748 = 6.9 cu FT

minus Agitator and Water depth ...

That is still too big. Their is no length and width but rather the circular area of the tub opening. Let's assume for simplicity sake the tub has a 2 ft. diameter and a 2 ft. depth. Volume = pi(3.14...)x radius squared (1/2 diameter) x depth Volume = 3.14 x1 (r squared)x2 = 6.28 cu/ft but the actual dimensions are smaller than 2ft I think. Does anyone know the actual cicumfrence and depth?

Dangit, I took those measurements from the Sears  site (feel free to look the part up yourself). What's wrong with them?

In this case radius is likely the W factor

BTW my best figgering is this is a 2.3 cu/ft tub. I forgot to insert a decimal on my  first ASSumptin and you guys ran with the mistake. silly wabbit

[/quote]Doh!  .. forgot it's a cylinder

V=
r2 h

r= 23"/2    
r2 = 132.25
h=23"

132 x 23 = 3041

3041 x = 9553 cu IN

9553 / 1748 = 5.5 cu FT
(minus Agitator and water depth)

The new 23 cubic foot cap washer comes with a hot tub feature for budget minded midgets.

Sears must be using box dimensions. 5.5 sounds right.

Trying to figure out the cubic feet of this washer. Thanks!!

Model 110.82872800

Reality check - we filled up our Kenmore Series 70 model 110.207722990 washer to the 2nd row of holes from the top (this is how much it fills automatically) with buckets it took 24 gallons. This converts to ~ 3.2 cu ft. Not exactly the same model, but same series, and what I was looking for when I came to this forum. Maybe it will help someone else, too.

That will give you the OUTER tub capacity not inner usable tub, back to the drawing board.

You are correct, but I want the outer tub capacity, because this is how much water it takes to do a wash. I'm not trying to figure out how many clothes I can put in the washer - I want to know how much water I can put in it. We are creating a rain collection system and this is what we need to know. Measuring the water before we put it in automatically accounts for the volume of the agitator, inner tub wall, etc. Perhaps others have some other goal in mind.
