Will a Washing Machine or Dryer fit?

Trying to check rear opening measurements online for our 2016 Highlander and coming up with a blank.

Does anyone have opening dimensions or know if a washer or dryer will fit in the back?

Washer is 27" wide, 29" deep and 43" high.

Good Greif , just use a tape measure and measure the opening your self and you will have your answer.

If I had the means to do that at this moment I would.

Good grief, what is the point of a forum if you can't ask a question of someone that might already know the answer.

It'd probably fit laying down, but I own a truck, so I've never used my HL for that type of cargo.

Something those dimensions would probably fit in our Prius v wagon so surely it would fit in your Highlander. You might want to place it on its side and maybe use padding to keep from damaging it or your interior. Those suckers are heavy and not easy to pick up.

Here's a thread where a couple of people have measured: https://www.toyotanation.com/forum/3...rea-width.html

I've witnessed two parking lot "emergencies" in the last year in which people bought flat screen TV's at Walmart and Costco that wouldn't fit in their vehicles. Neither accepted my offer to transport their TV's to their homes in my Sienna ... maybe they were embarrassed or thought I might abscond with their TV's.

The sheet metal used on these modern day appliances is pretty thin. So I'm thinking, yeah, they will fit. A little persuasion may be needed, but shouldn't be too difficult.

You're asking someone to make a measurement for you because you're too lazy to do it yourself? I change an hourly rate ($85 USD) and round up to the full hour. What is wrong with you that you can't do it? Broken hands? Are you blind? Will need answers before I draw up the contract for you to sign...

Trade it for a van and let this serve as a lesson to buy something that will fit a washing machine in future, I really don't know what Toyota is thinking selling these vehicles that won't suit all customer expectations....

These forums are all about helping other Toyota owners with most aspects of their vehicle. Lord knows I've gotten some great info here. Please don't delude yourself into thinking TN is a substitute for a tape measure and 5 seconds worth of measuring.

This is interesting. I know my flat screen would not fit in my Highlander, so I'm thinking how the hell would I get a new one home from Costco. My son bought one and he said he transported it flat which is against the box warning which says to always transport upright. I asked a Costco guy when I observed that they stocked some models piled like 5 or 6 high FLAT. He said it is OK to transport flat if the screen is down, and then I did notice the boxes have an arrow pointing toward the "front". I don't know what the correct answer is. Sorry for a little too much off topic.
