Finding the Most Water-Efficient Washers
Front Loading Washers vs. Top Loading Washers
Impellers vs. Agitators
ENERGY STAR® certification
ENERGY STAR® certified washing machines use about 33% less water and 25% less energy than a standard unit but may cost slightly more upfront.
Some models also offer water-level adjustability features, such as deep-water wash or auto-sensing load sizes. The Deep-Water Wash option lets you fill the wash basket to the maximum water level when you want. The extra water works with robust wash action to effectively break down and rinse away everyday tough messes. With auto-sensing, the machine automatically regulates the water level based on the size of the load.
How do HE Washers Clean Clothes With Less Water?
1. Use the Right Detergent
HE washers work best with HE detergents. These low-sudsing, quick-dispersing products effectively trap dirt and dyes at lower water levels. We recommend trying out Swash™ Laundry Detergent, a concentrated HE washer-compatible detergent that gets clothes clean with less product.
