A note on average usage

In order to calculate energy costs for washing machines we assume an average use of approximately 5.5 times a week. Remember that these costs are only indicative and will vary according to your actual usage. More

Energy costs for washing machines are based on a full load using the standard 60°C cotton program. We use 60°C as the reference because this is the only consistent information provided by manufacturers. Many people wash at 40°C and the difference varies a lot, between 5% and 40% less, but on average the cost should be around 20% lower.
