When comparing efficient clothes washers, it’s all about the energy performance metrics MEF (Modified Energy Factor) and the WF (Water Factor) for ENERGY STAR qualified products.

  • IMEF, or integrated modified energy factor, is a measure of the energy used during the washing process, including machine energy, water heating energy, and dryer energy required to remove the remaining moisture content of washed clothes. The higher the IMEF, the more efficient the clothes washer.
  • WF, or water factor, is the measure of the gallons of water used per cycle. The lower the water factor, the more efficient the washer is for using water.

Note: Energy Star Top-Load clothes washers must be CEE Tier 1 rated to be eligible for the rebate. For requirements and specifications on how to qualify for a rebate, please call 360.376.3587.

No, and in fact many times installation takes place during deliver of a new clothes washer. We do not require a contractor release form for clothes washers, and many homeowners opt to install the appliances themselves. When installing without a contractor, please be safe, and read installation instructions thoroughly.
