3 Signs Your Appliance Is Failing

It’s nice to know that the stainless steel appliances in your home are doing their jobs. Whether it’s keeping a steak cold, washing the dishes, or cleaning your clothes for work, the simplicity and convenience is a nice perk to have! However there are times in which your home’s technology or machines might not seem like they’re doing as well as they once did — and that can point to them failing. Below are a few key things to look out for when it pertains to your appliances, and cues that they may be on the way out.

Decreased Performance

A lack in performance should and probably will be the first sign that something isn’t doing well anymore. Noticing that your dishes are less clean or the food isn’t as cold can be an indicator of something going wrong. Many times, this deals with one of a few small components that when repaired properly, can bring things back to normal — but there are times when failure is inevitable. Should you notice a constant decrease in performance, you may want to have the appliance looked at.

Odd Sounds

Listening to the washing machine sing you a song when it’s completed a cycle is nice — but listening to it screech to a halt when it’s finished a spin cycle is likely less enticing. A noise like this can point to a few things — there can be a lack of lubrication inside the machine, or something has failed, meaning the machine may do the same. These sounds are not normal of course, and should be addressed immediately.

Leaks & Odors, Oh My

The smell of a working fridge or dishwasher is, well, probably non-existent! However if you’re noticing anything similar to a chemical smell or burning smell, something might be very wrong. In addition to this, seeing them leak out onto your wood flooring is likely less than appealing — and it can lead to even more damage! These indicators are key in understanding if your appliance is beginning to head out and provide the assurance that someone needs to take a closer look.
