:363 Clothes Washers

Take the 1:5:10:365 challenge: Do one thing – for 5 to 10 minutes – 365 days a year to make our home and planet environment better.

1:5:10:363 EcoTip: The energy efficiency and water used by clothes washers can vary dramatically. In general side load washers are more economical than top load units. When rating clothes washers – EPA also considers how much water is removed by the spin cycle. The more water that remains behind – the more energy wasted in the dryer.

EPA’s EnergyStar program has rated clothes washers for water consumption and energy efficiency. You can view a list of the top qualifying models at http://www.energystar.gov/index.cfm?fuseaction=clotheswash.search_clotheswashers
