5 star water efficient washing machines


Flow rates for washing machines are expressed on the water rating label by the average total water consumption.

The most water efficient washing machines have at least a 5 star WELS rating (55 litres per wash. Load capacity 8kg)


Washing machines are tested for:
• average total water consumption
• rinse performance
• severity of wash
• soil removal
• wash of a normally soiled cotton load (at the rated load capacity of the machine)
• water efficiency rating (based on total water consumption and rated capacity)
• water extraction.
