How to Avoid Damage to the Washing Machine / Simple Care Tips

When your washing machine breaks, it can be a hassle, and repairs can be expensive. Taking care of your machine and keeping it serviced is the best way to avoid costly repairs and inconvenience in the future. Here are a few tips to help you keep your washing in good working order for a long time.

  • Be gentle on the door. Slamming the door can cause it to not close properly. It can damage the hinges and get them out of alignment. On a front-loading washer, this can damage the seal and cause a leak.
  • Don’t spin the knobs. Be gentle when turning dials that spin. Being too rough can break the teeth and cause them to malfunction. You can also break off the dial.
  • Even loading. When loading your washer, distribute the items evenly around the agitator. Do not place them all on one side, or it can cause an uneven load and damage the machine. Also, try to balance light and heavy items. If your washer starts making a banging or knocking sound, stop the unit and redistribute the clothing, then start it again. Do not allow it to run with an unbalanced load.
  • Remove Smells. If your washer develops a foul smell, set it on hot and run and add a cup of vinegar to the water to neutralize smells. This can also help to remove hard water buildup in the lines, too. If you live in an area that has hard water, it is a good idea to do this about once a month.
  • Do not overload. Do not overload the machine. You should never load your machine more than two thirds full of clothing. Overloading can cause your clothing to not be properly cleaned, and you can damage the machine.
  • Make sure it is level. If the washer shakes or rocks, it is not level. A professional can adjust it to make sure that it is level. Continuing to operate it in this way can risk damage to the machine.
  • Clean the dispensers. If your machine has dispensers for detergent and fabric softener, you need to rinse and clean them to remove buildup. Otherwise, they could clog.
  • Read your Owner’s Manual. Most people assume that they know how to use a washer, but today’s machines are complex and have special needs. Be sure to read your Owner’s Manual so that you know how to maintain your particular brand and model.
  • Inspect hoses and service. It is a good idea to inspect your hoses regularly for signs of wear or damage. If your machine has rubber hoses, you should consider replacing them with braided ones that are more durable. It is also recommended that you have a qualified service professional inspect and service your machine at least once a year to keep it in good working order.

Washing machines are simple appliances, but they have many moving parts and take a lot of abuse. These tips will help you to keep your machine in good working order for many years to come.

There are some things that you can do to keep your washer working properly, but sometimes, it might still break. If this happens, call HOU Repair immediately, and we can get your washer back up and running again quickly and affordably.
