Commercial Washing Machine

commercial washing machine

A washing Machine which is used for commercial purposes is known as a commercial washing machine. A commercial washing machine is supposed to be used more frequently for long term, than a consumer washing machine. In a commercial washing machine, more thrust is to function, than its style, so most of the commercial washing machines will have a common style, a sharp edged square appearance. Since it is constantly in a moist environment, it usually has stainless steel exteriors to fight with corrosion and rust. Since they are used for commercial purpose, one owner may have more than one number of commercial washing machines. So usually they are installed in rows with a wide access passage way in between.


Most of the time commercial washing machines are placed for general public, which are operated by money accepting machines in Laundromats or launderettes. A commercial washing machine does not have elaborate features as a consumer washing machine used to have. They offer only 3-4 washing programs when the consumer washing machines offer 15-20. Like a consumer washing machine, a commercial washing machine also has the facility to choose wash cycle temperature.

There is a big difference between the consumer washing machine and commercial washing machine in the expulsion of water. The consumer washing machine pumps the used water out and also removes the waste line; where as a commercial washing machine depends on gravity to remove the used water. Since it goes through the bottom of the refrigerator, the waste line remains there.


Commercial washing machines are attached with some specific features which can never be seen in the consumer washing machines. It has an automatic chemical injection option in which a precise metering system measures the detergents from the large wash load in the washing machine, so that the operator may not do it manually. Some of the commercial washing machines are controlled by computers for the operators to have complete control over the washing cycles.
