    You will use the same amount of energy regardless of the time of day.

    The response from @Allanr is 100% correct.

    However, do you mean "energy" or do you actually mean "cost"? If you have a two (or more) rate tariff, i.e., one where the night rate is lower than the day rate, then yes you will save money. But the energy use will be the same.

    Do you have Economy 7 or a smart meter on a time-of-use tariff? If not, then the cost will be the same no matter when you run the washing machine.
