New Washer Means New U.S. Jobs

“The new GE high-efficiency topload washer features the industry's largest capacity (five cubic feet) for toploading models while using less energy and water than a traditional washer. In addition to its efficiency, consumers will appreciate the time-saving, convenience-focused features on the new GE ENERGY STAR(R) washer, including SmartDispense(TM).”

GE has added 150 new U.S. jobs to its factory in Louisville, Kentucky where they have been churning out topload washers since 1953. With 928 employs at the washing machine factory alone, GE has over 4,000 total employees in Louisville alone having added about 1,500 production jobs in 2012 as part of an $800 million investment.

HE (High Efficiency) washers were once the limited to frontload models, but new HE technology has led to the consumer preferred topload washers now becoming the fastest growing segment of the washing machine industry. “GE's new HE topload is around 60 percent more water efficient than a traditional topload washer,” said Heather Koyama, GE Appliances topload washing machine product manager. “There is no agitator in an HE washer, so the extra capacity lets the washer hold more clothes. The higher spin speeds allow more moisture to be removed from the clothes, which saves energy in the dryer.”
