DOE Closes Investigation of ASKO Dishwasher

September 8, 2010 - 4:50pm


The Department of Energy has closed its investigation into the energy efficiency of ASKO Appliance Inc.'s dishwasher model D5122XXLB. After testing this model, the Department has found the model to be compliant with federal energy conservation standards.

The Notice of Compliance Determination can be found here. DOE previously referred this model, which ASKO labeled as ENERGY STAR, to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) based on DOE testing showing that it consumed more energy than permitted by the ENERGY STAR program requirements.  EPA has since delisted this model from the ENERGY STAR program.
