My washing machine is broken - it's the pump that empties the water. It's 15 years old so I've bought a new one. The ratings for energy efficiency are a bit odd.
I've gone for an A+AA machine and the manufacturer tells me that the energy consumption is 1.02 kwh/cycle and Water consumption is 45 litres/cycle-wash.
But I've seen an AAC machine that quotes 49 litres normal water consumption for a 60 degree wash and 0.95kW energy consumption per cycle.
Both machines take a 6kg load.
So have I been suckered by the labelling?
