Montreal (Qc) CANADA, July 24, 2007 - Model Released photo- A young asian woman use high efficiency (HE) detergent to wash clothes in a front loader washing machine.<br />
<br />
Front-loading washing machines use:<br />
40 to 60% less water<br />
30 to 50% less energy<br />
50 to 70% less detergent<br />
than top-loaders!<br />
<br />
Most of the energy used for washing clothes is consumed for heating the water. A typical top-loading washer uses about 40 gallons of water as compared to only 20 to 25 gallons in a front-loader.<br />
<br />
The gentle tumbling action of a front-loader is much easier on clothes than the twisting action they receive in a top-loader.<br />
<br />
The typical top-loader machine spins at about 600 rpm (revolutions per minute). Many front-loading machines spin faster -1000 rpm to1600 rpm. This forces more water out of the washing.<br />
<br />
Therefore, front loaders reduce drying time considerably because they spin much faster.<br />
<br />
In Europe, more than 90% of washing machines are front-loaders, compared with less than 5% in the U.S. <br />
