Washing machine replacement for social housing tenants

The NSW Government’s Washing Machine Replacement trial scheme allows over 40,000 eligible social housing tenants to replace their top loading washing machine with a new, more efficient model at a heavily discounted price. The swap will significantly reduce their water and power use and could reduce annual household water, electricity and detergent costs by $200-245 on average.

After early success the trial has been expanded to include all social and Aboriginal housing—including those managed by community housing providers—across NSW, meaning a further 90,000 could be eligible for a replacement. Customers can apply online before 30 September 2022.
