When you’re shopping for a new ENERGY STAR certified clothes washer, here are some tips to remember:

  • Energy-efficiency levels of ENERGY STAR clothes washers vary. To get the highest level of efficiency, saving you the most on your energy consumption, look for premium-efficiency washers that have an Integrated Modified Energy Factor, or IMEF*, of 2.76 or higher. Only select ENERGY STAR models qualify for customer benefits. Look for the Energy Trust logo or ask a sale associate about which models qualify.
  • Pick a machine with faster spin cycles. Faster spin cycles can extract more water, reducing drying time and energy use.
  • Choose a size that meets your household needs. Most manufacturers today have models that are ENERGY STAR certified. Sizes vary, ranging from 1.6 to 3.8 cubic feet. You can even get ENERGY STAR qualified models that are stackable or fit under a counter for smaller spaces.
  • Consider a model that offers a “mini-basket.” This small tub that fits over the agitator allows you to wash very small loads.
  • Look for pre-soaking and suds-saver options. Both features conserve energy.

*IMEF is the efficiency rating for clothes washers. It is based on the level of electricity used by the washer and the amount of dryer energy required to remove the remaining moisture content from clothes.

I purchased a new clothes washer. What benefits are available to me?

Energy Trust works with select retailers to provide benefits to customers purchasing ENERGY STAR certified clothes washers. To receive price discounts, improved financing options or other benefits at the time of purchase you must purchase a qualifying clothes washer from a store on the list of participating retail locations.
