We often get asked what the difference is between an energy star washing machine or dishwasher and a normal one. The quick and easy answer is Saved Money. You will save money on a monthly basis. Just how much depends on how many people in your household and how often you wash clothes and wash dishes (as well as take showers and so forth)ENERGY STAR is a government-backed program helping businesses and individuals protect the environment through superior energy efficiency. Here is the official energy star website.
Energy Star Washing Machines
Most washing machines use 40 or more gallons per load. This is an huge number. Not only is it wasteful, but it can get very expensive when you consider how many of these gallons need to be heated and how much energy is needed and paid for to make this work.

Energy Star rated washing machines use between 18-25 gallons. These appliances will save you 38-55% on water consumption per load, and depending on how many loads you wash on Hot. It will also reduce the heating bill by nearly half per load.
Energy Star Dishwashers
A typical dishwasher uses 12 gallons per load, all of which is hot water. Energy Star rated dishwashers use 3 gallons less per load, which again not only saves the cost of those three gallons, but also the cost to heat them. An energy star dishwasher will save 25% every time you run it. Click here for Dishwasher Coupons
Water usage is a culprit of high cost in home energy bills. Depending on how many showers people take, and how many people there are in the home to take them as mentioned above, sprinklers, pools and fish tanks, water can become a huge spender, especially when you have to heat it.
Simple actions can make a big difference. If just one in 10 homes in the United States used ENERGY STAR qualified appliances, the change would be like planting 1.7 million new acres of trees.
