Residential Clothes Washers Qualifying Product List

Date Published


Through the Super Efficient Home Appliances Initiative, CEE promotes the manufacture and sales of energy efficient clothes washers. CEE has developed a set of specifications and a qualifying products list to define energy efficiency and works with initiative participants (utilities and energy organizations) to promote qualifying washers through incentive, educational, and promotional programs. In support of the initiative, CEE maintains a compiled list of qualifying models based on manufacturer claims. You can find the 12 most recent Qualifying Product Lists posted on this page in reverse chronological order - newest at the top.

The CEE high efficiency clothes washer specifications have two parts: energy consumption (Integrated Modified Energy Factor) and water usage ( Integrated Water Factor). The specification sheet can be viewed here.

If you are an equipment manufacturer with a model which meets our specifications, but is not on our lists, please fill out the submission form to submit a product for review. Please note only equipment manufacturers that have verified the performance of each model are able to make a submission. If the submitted model(s) meet the CEE specifications, it will be added to the next update CEE Residential Clothes Washer Qualifying Product List, which occurs on the 15th of every month.
