You just bought a new washing machine and thought that it
would last long and serve you for years without any problems.
But then you start noticing signs that it isn't working as well
as it used to. Before you replace it, let's look at 5 ways you can
maintain your washing machine to make it last longer and improve its
1. Level your washing machine on a flat, even surface
It is best to check the level of your washing
machine before you begin using it. If the machine
is unlevel, it can cause damage to the floor, as
well as the base and body of the machine. It can
also cause damage to the floor if you leave it in
one place while in use. If a washing machine is not
level, you may want to turn its legs clockwise or
counterclockwise, depending on whether you want to
raise it or lower it.
2. Regularly clean the lint filter:
To keep your laundry washer running efficiently
and save time in the process is to call experts
that can get the job done instantly. We have the
perfect people in mind and that is JXR, although
the other alternative is to clean the lint filter immediately
after finishing one load. Even if you cannot clean the filter
after every load of laundry, try to clean it at least after every
two loads to prevent lint build-up. Because a clogged filter can
prevent new clothing from being cleaned properly, it is important
that any residue from detergent or softener be removed as well.
A wet cloth can be used to wipe out excess lint and residue.
3. Do not overload the machine:
It can be tempting to overload your washing
machine in order to do fewer loads of laundry
and finish off the chore more quickly. However,
if you overload your washing machine, your clothing
will not tumble properly and will not be cleaned well.
You are also wasting water if you run the washing machine
at less than half its capacity.
4. Clean the Washing Machine Regularly:
Washing machine maintenance can be neglected since our clothes seem perfectly clean after each wash. However, detergent, softener residues and bacteria are left behind that can affect the efficiency of your washing machine as well as the cleanliness of your clothes.
Here’s a little tip for the next time you clean your washing machine, you can use baking soda and white vinegar to clean your washing machine on an empty load.
The new models of washing machines come with a tub-cleaning cycle. These cycles are meant to clean the washing machine and make certain that soap scum is removed and your clothes turn out fresh. Clean your washer's front door using a soft damp cloth. Leave the door open to let air circulate. You can also book a Washing Machine Repair service from JXR to get your appliance serviced and repaired instantly with 5 star service at your doorstep.
5. Clean the detergent and fabric softener dispensers regularly :
Due to its design, the detergent drawer can become clogged with residue, making it difficult for the detergent to be released into the wash tub. Also, if the fabric softener compartment becomes clogged with residue or a build-up of fabric softener, some leakage may occur. To prevent this from occurring, clean the detergent and fabric softener compartments regularly by adding a small amount of water to each compartment and wiping off any residue using a small cloth.
Check that you have installed your washing machine in an area where it does not touch the wall and has a gap of a few inches on all sides. Also, leave the washing machine's lid open for at least 15 minutes after finishing the laundry. This promotes air circulation, which helps to dry the machine completely, preventing mildew from growing and your clothes from smelling bad.
Even though washing machines are very functional and technologically advanced appliances, they still need to be looked after and given the proper maintenance. They can last a long time if you follow the simple rules mentioned above in this article and if you have been delaying your washing machine repair for some time now, it’s high time you get it repaired before the dirty clothes start piling up.
