Picking an LG Washing Machine that meets the requirements of the Appliance Stimulus Package is easy. The reason it is so easy is their entire line meets the requirements of the “Cash for Appliances” program because every washer they make carries the Energy Star seal. LG or, Life’s Good is a Korean based corporation with 114 local subsidiaries worldwide, employing roughly 82,000 executives and employees.
The LG Washer US Product Line is composed of front loading washers all of which carry the Energy Star seal and are eligible for the “Cash for Appliances” Rebates of $50 – $200. The LG Washers are loaded with advanced feature options which save energy. One of the biggest energy saving options involve a high speed spin cycle at speeds up to 1300 RPM, which leaves the clothes almost dry at the end of the washing, reducing drying time saving huge amounts of energy. One of the other energy saving features on some models is a built in water heating element. This feature was almost a necessity because of the water saving designs that use up to 44% less water than a conventional washer so by the time hot water reaches the washer it may already be close to being full. Some models have SenseClean™ measures the water’s turbulence and then adjusts water and cycle length for more precise cleaning and energy efficiency.
LG also offers Steam Washers which are eligible for the “Cash for Appliances” Rebates using the least amount of water and having phenomenal cleaning power. Steam Washers offer so much cleaning power that they have an Allergiene™ cycle uses the power of steam to remove over 95% of the common household allergens, like dust mites and pet dander from your laundry. They also offer Wash/Rinse Optimizer™ which automatically senses water hardness and detergent level and adjusts cycle length to maximize efficiency.
