Always check the user manual for information on your specific appliance, but the points below will give you some general guidance.
Most modern appliances now show their energy rating information, often in the user manual and also on a sticker on the appliance itself. The standard ratings range from A+++ through to D.
Many washing machine energy labels will also show you additional useful information, such as annual water consumption (shown in litres), the drum capacity (shown in kilograms), noise emission (shown in decibels) and efficiency of its spin drying (generally marked from A to G).
The costs of operating your washing machine can be an important consideration, so the energy-use information can be very useful and will normally give you a guide to annual energy consumption based upon estimated usage.
