ENERGY STAR SAVES WATER – THIS SAVES YOU TIME & MONEY

Washers & Dryers at Bekins Energy Star

At Bekins, we take many efforts to reduce our carbon footprint. We offer new Whirlpool washers that will save water and rate well with the Energy Star standards. Their new features help the environment but may leave some customers confused.

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.

Washer Options Energy Star

Newer washers now spray the clothes with water in the rinse cycle, then drain the much less remaining water.

The solutions?

  • 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.

NEED ADDITIONAL HELP?

That’s why we have a service department. We want you to be thrilled with your purchase. That means helping you use it correctly and making sure your appliances work.

Have any questions, give our Service Department a call at 616-288-1020.
