Clothes WashersWash your way to great savings.
Today’s energy efficient clothes washers help save energy and money while reducing wear and tear on your clothes. They automatically adjust wash cycles for load size, water temperature, and other factors.
Most energy saving clothes washers carry the ENERGY STAR® label. ENERGY STAR certified clothes washers use about 25 percent less energy and 40 percent less water than non-certified washing machines.
You May Be Eligible for a Rebate of Up to $400 When You Replace Your Old, Inefficient Clothes Washer With a New Energy-Saving Clothes Washer

New energy efficient clothes washers use sophisticated wash systems to flip and spin clothes through a water stream, rather than relying on the tub to fill up with water. This saves ten gallons of water per load.
These clothes washers are also designed to extract more water during the spin cycle than standard clothes washers. This allows for shorter drying times, adding up to additional energy and time savings for every load of laundry.
Here are some additional tips you can use to maximize your savings when doing the laundry:
- Use warm or cold temperature settings instead of hot to save on energy costs.
- Wait until you have a full load to run the washing machine. Even if it adjusts for load size, doing more frequent, small loads uses more energy.
