Energy efficiency label, explained

The Energy efficiency rating makes it very easy to make like-for-like comparisons The Energy efficiency labelling scheme A labelling system within the European Union was introduced in 1995 covering all appliances. Labels ranging from A rating for the highest efficient and G for low efficiency; the system became more complicated and confusing over time with ratings of A+, A++ and A+++ being added. Creating space for further developments in energy efficiency On the 1st March 2021 the A+, A++ and A+++ were phased out and the rating scale was reset back to A to G. Great improvements in energy saving technology raised the majority of washing machines to the top of the rating scale, where they were crowded at A+++. To make it simpler to compare washing machines and create space for further developments in energy efficiency, the rating scale was reset. 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)

The Energy efficiency rating is a useful tool to determine the environmental performance when choosing a new washing machine 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, though these figures represent the energy efficiency of the washing machine the build quality and reliability may differ greatly between manufactures.
