Laundry Appliances

Standard washing machines and clothes dryers, especially those manufactured before 2003, use far more energy than newer, efficient models. When you purchase efficient laundry appliances from our qualified washing machines and clothes dryers product lists, Seattle City Light will give you up to $250 cash back. Get your rebate started!

Benefits of ENERGY STAR® certified washing machines:

    • Use at least 25% less energy and 45% less water – higher efficiency means lower utility bills and better for the environment.
    • Require fewer loads – No bulky agitators means more usable space for clothes. More capacity means fewer loads of laundry per week – and more time for you.
    • Reduce dryer time – Advanced spin cycles remove more water from clothes so your dryer doesn’t have to work as hard.

Does a laundry appliance rebate work for you?

To qualify for a laundry appliance rebate, you must:

  • Be a Seattle City Light customer.
  • Choose a model listed on our qualified washing machines or clothes dryers product lists. Seattle City Light stickers are also applied to qualified products available at participating retailers.
  • Redeem one rebate per household for each appliance type. Applications for washer and dryer rebates may be completed separately. If you purchase a qualified washer and dryer together, only one rebate form is required.
  • Have either an electric dryer or an electric water heater that the machine will be used with. If your water heater AND your dryer are fueled by natural gas or propane, you are not eligible for a rebate.
  • If you are unsure of your eligibility contact an Energy Advisor at (206) 684-3800 or SCLEnergyAdvisor@seattle.gov

Rebate process:

  • Purchase a qualified washer model and/or dryer model.
  • Complete and sign the Laundry Appliance Rebate Form.
  • Submit the rebate form, along with your itemized receipt(s), postmarked within 90 days of purchase and no later than October 1, 2018.
  • Rebate checks usually arrive in your mailbox within 6-8 weeks.
