Water efficiency

New washing machines in Australia must have a WELS (Water Efficiency Labelling Scheme) sticker. This label is granted after the machine has satisfied minimum performance criteria as defined under Australian Standard 2040. It has a zero to six star rating, and also shows the water consumption in litres per wash for the cycle used to pass the standard.
