Whirlpool Steam Washing Machine Energy Savings Focused

Steam technology for home appliances with washing capabilities are already something we’ve seen in dishwashers, and we are now seeing it in washing machines as well. The Whirlpool Duet WFW9750W happens to be one of those, garnering itself a small heaping of energy efficient labels and a price tag of around $1,600.

The WFW9750W, which is available in three body colors, uses steam technology to “steam out” stains and a variety of allergens. This helps save water, according to Whirlpool, and “received the highest rating for water efficiency, cleaning and capacity from a leading consumer magazine.” This washing machine is also said to be one of the most Energy Star qualified products in its category at the moment, in addition to garnering “one of the most efficient energy ratings available from the Consortium for Energy Efficiency (CEE) -Tier III.” The CEE is a non-profit said to “promote the manufacture and purchase of energy-efficient products and services.”

Whirlpool has also built a whole bunch of other functions into this steam washer, including a capacity of 4.5 cu. ft, a delay wash setting to set the washer to begin up to 18 hours later, noise reduction and an option to “keep clothes smelling fresh for up to 10 hours after the cycle ends.”
