Washers

ENERGY STAR certified washing machines use significantly less water—13 gallons per load—compared to 23 gallons a load in standard machines. Many models include additional energy-saving features, including faster spin cycles, and options for pre-soaking and suds-saving.

Dryers

ENERGY STAR certified dryers use 20-60% less energy than standard dryers. They use moisture sensors to more accurately stop the dryer when clothes are dry, compared to traditional timed drying. Other energy-saving features can include automatic cycle termination, delayed start, and steam cycle.

Efficiency Ratings

When shopping, be sure to check a model’s efficiency rating. The higher the rating, the more energy efficient the product. Look for washers that have a rating of 2.76 or higher (called IMEF, or Integrated Modified Energy Factor), and dryers that have ENERGY STAR certification.
