ENERGY STAR dishwashers must exceed the minimum federal efficiency standards for both energy and water use. A new ENERGY STAR certified dishwasher uses less than half as much energy as washing dishes by hand and saves nearly 5,000 gallons of water a year.
All installed dishwashers must be ENERGY STAR qualified.
As products and ENERGY STAR qualifications are periodically updated, the product must be labeled as an ENERGY STAR qualified product at the time it was purchased.
