ENERGY STAR GUIDELINES changing expectations
If you start seeing detergent residue on your clothes with a newer washing machine, especially one that rates well with Energy Star, we offer simple solutions to try before calling our service department.
As a way to use less water with each wash, new Whirlpool washers have changed their “Normal Wash” settings. For years the rinse cycle in a “Normal Wash” setting offered a deep wash. The tub would fill with water, agitate the clothes, then drain the water.
Newer washers now spray the clothes with water in the rinse cycle, then drain the much less remaining water.
- You can use less detergent, because your normal wash cycle is using less water. This option can save you both time and money.
- You can also activate various “options” to tell the washer that you want the tub to still fill with water, agitate and drain for your rinse cycle.
- Which options? That depends on the model so you need to consult your Use and Care Guide.
