• Conserve water by only washing full loads. Most washers use from 32 to 60 gallons of water per load. Set the water level appropriately for the amount or type of clothing you’re washing.
  • Look for front-loading washers when buying a new appliance. They use up to one-third less water than top-loading machines. Also, look for models with a variety of water level and temperature settings to maximize water and energy savings.
  • Look for ENERGY STAR appliances, which spin out more water, thus decreasing the time your laundry spends in the energy-hungry dryer. Some models are available for rebate through SUB. Visit our Rebates & Loans page for more information.
