In the past, washing machines used extremely large volumes of water, with some reaching a massive 150 litres of water per cycle. That’s as much water as the average daily consumption per person per day in the UK. Fortunately, these days are gone and the per wash water usage has reduced significantly due to advances in technology in the last 20 years.
Having said this, most modern washing machines still use around 50 litres of water per wash during an average cycle, but there is huge variability between different makes and models on the market.
