Clothes Washer Buyer’s Guide
When shopping for a clothes washer, make sure it is a rebate-qualifying
ENERGY STAR® Most Efficient 2015 or 2016 model. Look for energy- and
water-saving features like advanced controls (water temperature, load
size, pre-soak cycles, etc.) and faster spin speeds.
Look for the label

Go to the front

Most clothes washers must meet specific energy
standards as outlined by the U.S. Department of
Energy. Energy usage and efficiency are displayed
on the yellow EnergyGuide labels. Visit the Federal
Trade Commission (FTC) website to learn more
about the EnergyGuide label.

In general, front loading (horizontal-axis) clothes
washers are much more efficient than conventional
vertical-axis (usually top-loading) machines with
agitators. This is because front-loading machines
do not have to completely fill the tub with water.

Seek control
Clothes washers with advanced controls can either
sense load size and adjust water levels, or have various
wash, rinse and presoak cycles that you can set for
more precise energy management.

Embrace spinning
Spinning moisture out of your clothes is much more
efficient than drying them with heat. Improved spin
speeds on new clothes washers allow you to either
air-dry or use the dryer less, which saves energy and
extends the life of your clothes.

Size matters
Try to size the new clothes washer to fit your needs
for the next seven to 10 years. Washing many loads
in a model too small for your needs consumes more
energy than washing fewer loads loads in a larger
model. If you have a small model and occasionally
need large capacity for comforters and bulky items,
consider using a local laundromat.

Check your specs

Places to buy

When shopping for a new clothes washer, bring
along measurements of your laundry room space,
doorways and any other nearby appliances (such
as a dryer) to ensure that your new machine will
fit the space. Also consider noise levels. If you are
installing machines close to sleeping areas or in
an upstairs setting, look for units with vibrationreduction technology or with suspension.

To find out which models qualify for rebates and where to
buy visit marketplace.pge. Remember to apply for your rebate
online, or ask a store associate for a rebate application.
