High-efficiency clothes washers (HEWs) utilize technological advances to deliver excellent wash performance while saving both water and energy. Resource efficient models use 35 - 50% less water. This reduction in water use means less energy needed to heat the water (approximately 50% less energy). Over 100 models of residential and commercial high-efficiency washers are offered by companies such as Continental, Dexter, GE, Huebsch, Maytag, Speed Queen, Staber, Unimac, Wascomat, and Whirlpool.
