I have a 90s GE filter flo heavy capacity top loader washing machine that has started to make squeaky noises during the agitation. It's 27 inches wide and 24 inches in depth.
I'm looking to replace it with another top load machine. The ones I found online are at least 26 inches in depth. My laundry closet is only 29 inches deep. Is 3 inches behind enough for clearance? The old machine has 5 inches behind. What is the minimum size required? I see some front loaders that are 24-25 inches deep but the capacity of those machines are very small.
