Water factor

Water Factor, WF, is the quotient of the total weighted per-cycle water consumption, Q, divided by the capacity of the clothes washer, C. The lower the value, the more water efficient the clothes washer is. The equation is: WF = Q/C. WF is the ENERGY STAR water performance metric that allows the comparison of clothes washer water consumption independent of clothes washer capacity.
