Ever wonder if the higher price energy and water stingy washer is worth it?
Consumer report illustrates how much you can save by spending more, maybe lots more, for the energy efficiency model.
Energy use for 300 cycles a year for 10 years. $780 for the best units, but a whopping $2,180 for the worst. Water use, 43,200 gallons, or up to 153,600 gallons for the worst wasters. If you have an old machine you've sent the power company a minimum of $2k the last 10 years. Water in some markets is mucho $, so that adds up too, and me, I don't like sending it to the utility.
