Energy efficiency labelling scheme

The Energy efficiency label is a useful tool to determine

the environmental performance of a washing machine

The new 2021 Energy efficiency label, explained A labelling system within the European Union was introduced in 1995 covering all appliances. Labels ranging from A rating for the highest efficient and D for low efficiency; the system became more complicated over time with ratings of A+, A ++ and A +++ being added. From the 1st March 2021 the confusing A+++, A++ and A+ will be phased out and the scale reset back to A to G. Why a new label? Great improvements in energy saving technology have raised the majority of washing machines to the top of the rating scale, where they’re crowded at A to A+++. To make it simpler to compare washing machines and create space for further developments, the rating scale has been reset. All appliance manufacturers have to do the same Energy efficiency calculation in the same way; enabling the consumer to compare straight away which washing machine is the more efficient appliance. Energy scale - Washing machines Energy consumption = kWh per 100 cycles A washing machine's energy efficiency rating is calculated using a 60°C cotton wash on one hundred wash cycles. (Based on five washes per week for a whole year) Also on the label you'll find symbols showing: Capacity in kilograms 60°C Cotton wash cycle duration Water consumption in litres Spin performance using a seven class scale. (The closer to letter A the dryer the laundry) Noise level in decibels and using a four class scale. (The closer to letter A the more quieter the machine)

By law, the Label must be displayed on all new washing machines displayed for sale, hire or hire-purchase. You should expect to be provided with this information however you buy a washing machines: Mail order catalogues, Websites and manufacturers' literature must contain similar information.
The Energy efficiency labelling scheme makes it very easy to make a like-for-like comparison when choosing a new washing machine - Though these figures represent the energy efficiency of the washing machine, the build quality and reliability may differ greatly between manufactures.

Using your smart-phones camera, hover over the QR-code that’s displayed on the Energy label to retrieve further product information from the European Registry for Energy labelling database. The database offers detailed information for all registered products such as Washing machines; the energy efficiency performance, the model dimensions, the type of compartments and their individual volume.
