  • Compare the energy efficiency of different washing machines before making a purchase.
  • Identify opportunities to reduce energy usage and save money.

Tips for Reducing Power Consumption

Here are some tips to help you reduce power consumption when using your washing machine:

  • Wash full loads whenever possible to maximize energy efficiency.
  • Use the appropriate wash cycle and water temperature for the type of clothes being washed.
  • Avoid using the pre-wash or extra rinse options unless necessary.
  • Consider air-drying your clothes instead of using the dryer.
  • Regularly clean the lint filter to ensure optimal performance.


Please note that the power consumption calculated by this tool is an estimate based on the information provided and may not reflect the actual power consumption of your washing machine. Factors such as the age, condition, and usage patterns of the machine can affect its energy efficiency. Always refer to the manufacturer’s specifications for accurate information.
