4 Effective Ways to Maintain and Take Care of Washing Machine

by Eva Smith Appliance Repairs Services
With continuous use, washing machine tends to wear down. If not properly maintained then it can result in foul smells, malfunctioned components and even mildew and similar consequences. This is one appliance that is of high use to you on a daily basis and taking some easy upkeep steps creates a lot of difference.

Here, we list down some highly important steps to take care of your washing machine on a regular basis:

1. Daily Upkeep

You use the machine daily to wash your clothes, and so you implement some basic steps to look for its proper maintenance. Keep the door open after you are done to let the moisture dry out. Remove any slimy build up after washing clothes with a damp cloth.

2. Watch the Load Size

Every washing machine comes with a manual and it clearly states that you should not overload it during wash. This is one aspect you must stick to strictly. With excessive load, the spin becomes poor and the motor comes under too much pressure resulting in over-heating issue. Split your laundry and wash separately to get a clean wash and avoid any harm to the washer.

3. Avoid Too Much of Detergent

Having excessive detergent leads to better cleaned clothes is a myth many people fall for. The ideal way is to wash laundry in adequate load size with less detergent. Too much of detergent leads to residue on the washer and can also affect water pipes.

4. Deep Clean Twice a Month

Just using your machine rigorously on a daily basis and still want to get 100% result every time is not fair. After a point of time, machines do lose their efficiency which can be maintained only with deep clean twice a month. 

Use a strong and effective cleaner that helps to remove all the scaling. Clean the rubber gasket with a damp cloth. Run an empty load of hot water with 2 cups of white vinegar. Wipe the drum and the door and clean the interior and dispensers thoroughly as well. Inspect the hoses to check for any cracks or bulges and ensure that the fittings are tight. If the hoses are bent or the machine is too old then it might be time to replace them.

Following the steps will help you maintain your washing machine in the best shape and ensure its efficiency and high performance. When you witness any problem with the functioning of the machine or with any component of it, call a reliable and expert service provider for washing machine repair in Sydney, or elsewhere, who can provide the right overhaul with standardised techniques and genuine spare part replacement.
