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 (Modified Energy Factor) and water usage (Water Factor). The specification sheet can be viewed here.
