If you want the most energy-efficient washing machine on the market, wait a few weeks. That’s because five washers atop the government’s Energy Star ratings (when sorted by energy efficiency) aren’t on the market yet. The Whirlpool WFW94HE, WFW95HE and WFW97HE and Maytag’s MHW7000 and MHW6000 (model numbers will vary slightly based on retailer) are tightly under wraps until October. If you can’t wait that long, we’ve rounded up some of the other most energy-efficient washing machines on the Energy Star list, as well as top-rated ones from Consumer Reports.
