3 Ways to Keep Your Washer from Breaking Down
While we enjoy being able to support our neighbors and friends in the Brandon area, we think it’s important to offer education to help avoid issues. Below are three ways to avoid potential malfunctions with your washing machine.
1. Clean it regularly
Whether you have a brand-new washer or one that’s a few years old, it needs to be cleaned regularly to remove any dirt or grime buildup. You’ll want to disinfect the drum, door, and dispenser at least once a month to prevent operational problems.
2. Don’t overload it
Doing laundry probably isn’t most people’s favorite pastime, so the urge to do it all at once and get it over with can be appealing. However, overloading your washing machine adds extra stress on the motor and keeps your clothes from getting as clean as possible. To avoid overloading your washer, leave roughly 6 inches of space from the top of the drum.
3. Use the correct detergent
Most washers are high-efficiency, meaning they need a high-efficiency detergent. What’s a high-efficiency detergent, you ask? It’s a product that’s low-sudsing and designed for washing machines that dispense low water levels, saving water usage and energy costs. If you don’t use the correct detergent for your washing machine, you risk compromising its performance.
