Sustainability standard for household clothes washers

active, Most Current
Organization: CSA
Publication Date: 1 January 2016
Status: active
Page Count: 78
scope:

This Standard covers clothes washing appliances for household and residential style commercial use (e.g., a coin-operated appliance in an apartment building) included within the scope of the U.S. Department of Energy (DoE) and Canadian federal Energy Efficiency Regulations minimum energy performance requirements. This includes the following product categories:

(a) top loading, compact [less than 45 L (1.6 ft3) capacity];

(b) top loading, standard;

(c) front loading, standard; and

(d) front loading, compact [less than 45 L (1.6 ft3) capacity].

Note: The Task Force intends to expand the scope to include combination all-in-one washer-dryers in future editions. New product categories and information on the environmental performance of the additional categories might be considered in order to determine the scope of future editions. DOE standards and Canadian Federal Efficiency Energy Regulations cover stacked washer-dryer units, and therefore they are within the scope of this Standard.

This Standard does not cover semi-automatic or suds-saving clothes washers, as the U.S. Department of Energy and Natural Resources Canada (NRCan) are unaware of any models currently on the market.
