How many appliances can you run on a 5000 watt generator?

A 5,000 watt generator can power a clothes washer, a fridge and a freezer, but not all of them at the same time. An average clothes washer requires 3,500 watt to power on and 1,000 watt to continue running, while a typical fridge and freezer requires 3,000 watt to power on and 1,000 watt to continue running.
