HOW CAN I EXTEND THE LIFE OF MY WASHER?

Washing machines are designed to require very little maintenance, and they can last for 10 years or more.

Follow these simple steps to keep your washer and dryer running efficiently and trouble free:

  • The quickest way to wear your washing machine out before its time is to overload it with comforters, rugs and large blankets. Look in your owner’s manual to learn how much weight your washer’s tub can handle. Just because it looks big doesn’t mean it’s a match for a wet blanket!
  • Balance your load. Washers can fail when heavy loads bang around in an unbalanced machine. Tip: Don’t wrap long items like sheets around the agitator. They’ll get cleaner if you place them on one side.
  • Replace your incoming hot-and-cold hoses every five years, even if they look OK. Older hoses are prone to bursting, and can cause a wet mess in your laundry room. Tip: Replace rubber hoses with flexible stainless steel hoses. They can bear higher water pressure and are less likely to burst.
