Energy Star Clothes Washer
ENERGY STAR labeled clothes washers use superior designs that require less water to get clothes thoroughly clean. These machines use sensors to match the hot water needs to the load, preventing energy waste.
Front-Loading: ENERGY STAR qualified models are similar in design to washers used in laundromats. These horizontal-axis or tumble action machines repeatedly lift and drop clothes, instead of moving clothes around a central axis.
Top-Loading: Some of these ENERGY STAR qualified washers use sensor technology to closely control the incoming water temperature. To reduce water consumption, ENERGY STAR labeled top loading clothes washers spray clothes with repeated high pressure rinses to remove soap residues rather than soaking them in a full tub of rinse water.
A typical household does nearly 400 loads of laundry per year, using about 40 gallons of water per full load with a conventional washer. In contrast, a full-sized ENERGY STAR qualified clothes washer uses 18-25 gallons per load. You could save 7,000 gallons of water per year or more. And, you are saving all the energy that would have been needed to heat the water. This adds up to savings for you and a big boost for the environment.
ENERGY STAR labeled clothes washers come in a range of capacities from about 1.6 cubic feet up to 3.1 cubic feet. A typical large-capacity washer found in most households is about 2.7 cubic feet. Because washers are most efficient when they are fully loaded, you should choose a size that most closely matches your laundry needs. For a family that does a lot of laundry, one of the larger models probably makes the most sense. For an individual or couple who does less laundry, a small model will be the most economical. Some ENERGY STAR labeled models can be stacked or mounted under a counter top. This is a useful feature for people short on space, such as apartment dwellers. Check with the manufacturer to see which models are available in this configuration.
