The existing washing machines are traditional top-loading models. A typical top-loading washing machine uses up to 40 gallons of water.
We recommend replacing the existing machines with front-loading machines that typically use 16 to 24 gallons of water for each load.
A front loading washing machine has a faster spin cycle. This removes more water from the laundry, reducing resulting drying time and energy use. In addition, a gentler tumbling action reduces wear on clothing, and the smaller water volume requires less detergent.
