How Many Watts Does a Washing Machine Use?


How many watts a washing machine will use will depend on the make, model, and size of the washer. The average clothes washer, not a combination washer and dryer, will use from 350 to 500 watts, but can go much higher. The manufacturer should provide that information for each model they sell. The newest models are much more efficient when it comes to energy used and the best are rated by their performance in energy efficiency.
