A washer is an essential appliance for most homeowners, especially for larger families that rely on this appliance on a regular basis to continuously clean clothes for the entire family. However, with frequent or infrequent use, one of your main priorities should be avoiding unnecessary washer appliance repair.
Place the Washer Correctly
When installing the washer, or after moving it and doing a thorough cleaning, you need to make sure the appliance gets placed in the correct position. An off-balance washing machine can cause flooring damage, as well as reducing the longevity of the washer itself. It is easy to avoid this by testing the position it is in with the spin cycle and making adjustments until you find that it is completely stable.
Prevent Bad Odor
Although it might not be a sign of a broken washing machine, you should prevent bad odor with your washer. To accomplish this, you need to keep the washer open after each use to let it air dry.
An overloaded washer is problematic because it makes the washing machine work harder than it is designed to, which can not only lead to performance issues, but issues that will eventually need repair.
Replace Washer Hoses
After owning a washer for several years, you should look into replacing the hoses. Replacing old hosing is a better alternative to finding out that your entire laundry room is flooded from a burst hose.
Proper washing machine maintenance is quite simple when you know what to do.
