I have heard that the usage of a power cable to a washing machine is not recommended, however I do not have other option for connecting as I have no bathroom power outlets.
What is the general problem with using a power strip, you can use it on various things, but not on washing machine as it seems to me. Is it because of around 2.5 kilowat potential max (which you barely ever hit it unless you wash on 90 celsius) power which is most of the time higher than any other appliance. From this asumpstion then you should not use water heaters, microwaves and vaccuum cleaners too? Or is it because it is the extended period of use that tha can heat up the cable and cause fire hazards? In this case can't I just get a thicker cable?
What cables types are there, what thickness should I get what is the biggest con of using one, do I need to have a surge protection on a cable like this, what are your recommendations (link me amazon if needed).
