Clothes Dryers

October 23rd 2014

On October 23, 2014 the  U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) issued a notice announcing that it will hold a public meeting to facilitate a discussion among interested parties with regards to potential changes to the DOE clothes dryer test procedure to produce test results that measure energy use during a representative average use cycle without being unduly burdensome to conduct. In consideration of interested parties' concerns regarding the test procedure and recent clothes dryer automatic cycle termination research, DOE is initiating an effort to determine whether amendments to the test procedure are warranted.
