Washer Proper Use & Maintenance Tips
Proper use can help your washer last! Here’s what we recommend:
Use the right amount of detergent
We know it’s tempting to use double the amount of detergent for larger loads or very dirty clothes. Fact is, your washer doesn’t need that much nor should you use that much! Too much detergent will cause your washer to work extra hard to remove the suds. Instead, just measure the detergent according to your detergent brand’s directions.
Don’t overload your washer
Washing too many clothes or linens at once could damage your washer’s drum and cause your washer to not run efficiently. This will cause more wear and tear on your appliance thereby decreasing its lifespan. Instead, just fill your washer about two-thirds of the way up and you should be in good shape.
Keep your washer clean
Don’t be shy in washing your washer! It’s easy for gunk and bacteria to build up in your washer. Clean your soap and fabric softeners regularly and keep your eye on the rubber seals around your door as those can get dirty, too. About once a month or so, just run an empty load with hot water and 1-2 cups of white vinegar to keep your washer in clean, working order.
