Dishwasher Considerations

Dishwasher Considerations: Tougher new rules have slashed the energy and water dishwashers can use to get the Energy Star seal. But you don't have to live with dirty dishes or endure even longer cycles. Better yet, some of the biggest energy misers are also easy on your wallet. Dishwashers built since January 2012 must use about 9 percent less electricity and 27 percent less water to meet the Energy Star standard.
Energy Star standards for dishwashers could add a wash-performance component as soon as January 2014.

A word about washer types


 Front-loaders use less water than top-loaders but typically have longer wash cycles—some take 100 minutes or more. That's not the end of the world, but it may be the beginning of laundry pile-up. Since front-loaders use less water, the detergent is more concentrated and the machine's tumbling action can also help boost cleaning. Manufacturers recommend using HE detergent—that's high efficiency—for front-loaders and HE top-loaders. Regular detergents are too sudsy for these machines.
