- How much electricity does a washing machine use? -

The electricity usage of a washing machine may vary considerable depending on the efficiency and age of the appliance.

Newer and efficient models most probably are going to be more economic. Still, if you have a washing machine at home or if you are considering to buy one, it is worth to spend a little time and find out the electricity usage and the electricity cost.

Washing machine electricity usage

The electricity usage, or the power consumption, should be clearly displayed or easily at the appliance itself of easily accessible online.

Still this is not always the case. If the electricity consumption is low, the power consumption details are easy to find. And the opposite, is the electricity consumption is higher that other similar washing machines, the power consumption details may be a bit hidden.

Electricity usage and cost calculator

We have chosen a random washing machine and made a simple search for its ‘datasheet’. Out of the results, we have been able to find its power consumption both at Amazon and at the manufacturer’s website.

Washing Machine Datasheet

Once we know the yearly power consumption, the calculator below can be used to calculate the power and cost consumption of the washing machine.

You just need to adjust the values in the PARAMETERS section to your requirements and the calculator will automatically display the RESULTS section.

 

Still, if you want to know the exact electricity usage of your washing machine, your best option is to use a plug in power meter to measure the electricity consumption. 

This is because a very efficient usage of the washing machine may decrease its power consumption and electricity cost. And the opposite, a very poor usage may increase its power consumption and electricity cost.

For more details, have a look to this post that we have created to show you how to use a plug in power meter to measure your appliances and devices power consumption.
