Front load washer

The cost to operate a front load washer is determined by the number of gallons of hot water used. The average cost to operate your front load washer with hot water is more expensive than warm or cold water. Please select the water temperature and the number of loads of laundry. Your cost per month and cost per year will be automatically calculated.

Note: The estimated costs do not include the electricity used by your front load washer. Front load washers are more energy efficient and use less water than top load washers. Most full-size front load washers uses 18-25 gallons of water compared to a standard washer that uses about 40 gallons of water.
