splendide 7100xc wash only run off inverter?

Does anyone know what the power draw is for this washing machine for cold water wash only cycles (no drying)?

I'm wondering if it will run from a 2000 watt inverter and if so, what the draw on the batteries might be.

Re: splendide 7100xc wash only run off inverter?

According to the literature for that machine, max. is 1300W so should be ok on 2k inverter. Assume the 1300W is probably for the drier and the wash cycles should be lower (but W not listed for the wash only).
Max. wash times for heavy duty was 63-96 minutes while gentle was 30-65 minutes.
Once you start using it you should be able to calculate the draw, but for simplicity using 1300W (13V) for a 60 min. wash ~100 Ah for the theoretical.

We have same model and it does run from 2000w inverter.
I canít tell you draw as we have extensive wind and solar power....so refilling as I am drawing....we never use dryer.
Husband only screams when I use the microwave and toaster at the same time!!!
Most important.....this washing machine has an express cycle....it is the only one I use and it gets filthy cruising clothes perfectly clean...it is about half as long and half as much water as regular cycle. I have been amazed at how many people donít even realize this!

We run our 2100 xc off inverter, no problem, donít use dry cycle. These things are pretty thrifty with power.
One caveat; on old boat did not work with modified sine-wave, had to get pure sine-wave inverter. Does work with Victron Phoenix, which I believe is pure sine-wave.

Cheers

We had the same issue. Ended up purchasing a 2000W pure sine wave portable generator, since it refused to operate using our Xantrex 3000 modified sine wave inverter.

To previous posters. How can you run an appliance and not know what the draw is?
Anyway, we have this same machine and don't use the dry cycle. It's nearly dry after the spin and only needs a couple of hours hanging in the sun.
Draw during the wash and rinse cycles is only about 12-16 amps at 12V. During the spin it is 33-34 Amps. We run the 75 minute program and the total usage is only about 25 Ah. Very efficient machine. We use an 1800w Xantrex pure sine wave inverter. A 500w inverter would be plenty to run just the machine.
