What is a high-efficiency clothes washer?

A full-sized Energy Star certified clothes washer uses 13 gallons of water per load, compared to the 23 gallons used by a standard machine. Replace older top loading clothes washers with newer water and energy efficient models.

When researching new washers, look for the Energy Star Most Efficient label, which recognizes products that deliver the highest water savings with the latest technology.
