Guidelines from the government dictate that a Manufacturing company must provide a certain % of models that meet the Energy Star Rating. Doesn't mean they have to wash well, last or look pretty. Just that they meet the rating. The only way to meet the rating is to have a ELC board to regulate water temps (guideline, not an option) . Tstats and 60/40 or 70/30 Cold to Hot Gallons ratio's do not cut it anymore. Consumer usage has the biggest negative effect on the usage of Front Loaders. The I shouldn't have to use powdered detergent. or I shouldn't have to clean the filter in the front, I spent $800 for this machine is rampant out there. As a tech, I just shake my head and move on. These same people usually have no qualms about using hi octane fuel (The book says so) or the recommended leather cleaner, my salesman said I have to. But point out something like that in the use and care of an appliance and they do not want to adhere or even read it most of the time.
