  1. Soak before washing

Soak  dirty clothes for 15 – 20 minutes before washing them. This saves electricity and helps getting the clothes cleaner .

 

  1. Suitable laundry quantity

Fill the machine to the nominal full load. Less laundry uses more water and energy per kg of laundry.

Do not overload, the laundry will not get clean and the motor may be overloaded and thus  damaged .

 

  1. Shorter spin cycle

With a spin cycle under the spin speed of 1680 rpm for the duration of 1 minute, the drying rate can be as high as 55%. In most cases, a 2-minute spin cycle is enough.

 

  1. Standard washing saves more electricity

In comparison to “soft washing” and “fast washing”, the “standard washing” mode is more energy saving.

 

  1. Toploader vs. front loader

The modern front loader drum machines guarantee  warm water best washing performance, less water use and lower energy consumption.

TTop loaders with cold water need more chemical detergents to achieve similar washing quality.
