Washers & Dryers

Get rebates up to $300 on eligible ENERGY STAR® certified washers and dryers.

The average American family washes about 300 loads of laundry every year, and nationwide, about 80 percent of homes have a dryer. Those numbers are what make ENERGY STAR certified appliances such a smart option!

ENERGY STAR certified washers use about 20% less energy and 30% less water than regular washers—and over the lifetime of the product, washers that have earned the ENERGY STAR label can save nearly $550 in energy costs.* Meanwhile, the advanced features of ENERGY STAR certified dryers use 20% less energy than standard models.

Tips to Keep Your Washer and Dryer Running at Peak Efficiency

  • Always use high efficiency (HE) detergent.
  • Without overloading your washer, run full loads as often as possible.
  • Wash in cold water whenever you can for maximum energy and cost savings.
  • Allow moisture to evaporate by leaving your washer door ajar for one to two hours after use.
  • If available, choose a high spin speed option to reduce the amount of remaining moisture in your clothes after washing. This makes drying less time-consuming.
  • Rinse your washer once per month. See your owner’s manual for details.
  • Prolong your dryer life by hanging clothes outside or on a drying rack if you can.
  • Clean your dryer's lint filter after every load to improve air circulation.
  • Scrub your dryer’s lint filter regularly if you use dryer sheets.
