Service is not the same as repair. Kindness means that your regular washing machine maintenance tips will be maintained regularly, avoiding breakdowns and difficulties. It's unnecessary to mix up service with the repair; the last happens because of a lack of preventative maintenance or poor quality servicing. Some preventive measures may be done alone, while an expert should only attempt others.

Types of work on the maintenance of washing machines

Most automated washers have a standard design. As a result, any model from any well-known manufacturer should be maintained by the same preventive maintenance principles. The following tasks are usually necessary for the safe operation of most equipment:

Check and clean the lint filter. The lower front of all washing machines includes this component (usually - behind the detachable panel). When removing the filter, lay a dry cloth beneath it or, even better, a container with low sides. To remove the accumulated dirt from the removed filter, wash cycle it out with water.

The water pressure is insufficient to clean the filters with hoses; however, it's not enough to wash them. Maintenance of front loading washing machines includes an examination of the status of these filters. If they are clogged, at least somewhat, it won't be easy to fill the machine with water. The performance of the pump will be impacted, and over time, it may be damaged.

The machine is not all that clean. Detergent residues can clog the foaming mechanism, causing it to fill with foam and overflow into the clothes basket. The water will then be ejected out of the machine through its lid or spinning wheel (if you have one) onto your clothes. Doing this every month usually takes 30-60 minutes depending on your cleaning job size and three settings for draining, scrubbing, feeding time (you'll need to press several buttons). You may use liquid detergent in any cycle if desired; however, use detergent in processes other than recommended by the manufacturer.

Checking the heating element is not difficult. TEN water, which is used in the washing machine, quickly gets filthy. Initially, this affects the quality of washing since the heater begins to heat the water inefficiently. The element fails subsequently. As a result, it is up to you to inspect and clean your Ten.

Remove food waste by cleaning the drain hose system. This system contains mould, fungus, a layer of dirt and grease. You must check and clean this equipment regularly to avoid unpleasant scents or even trash. The easiest way to do this is by using a wire hanger at the end of which you install a toothbrush.

Checking the hoses which hold the water up near the floor will ensure their good condition even if they are not fully submerged. These hoses may split or receive cracks, causing leaks that spread into your washing machine. Replacing hoses is a simple task.

Check the belt that drives the drum if it's accessible. If you notice that your clothes are not spinning correctly or you have seen tiny black pieces of rubber coming off them, it is time to replace this belt.

Repair washing machine

You should also perform regular cleaning of your equipment. If you don't, then the following tasks will take more time to clean.

Remember that washing machines are working with motors. This often causes them to vibrate or make a lot of noise while they work - this is normal and doesn't affect their performance, but it can be unpleasant. However, if the noise lasts for several minutes after turning off the equipment - this is an alarm! This may be a sign of a broken flywheel spinning ring or another malfunctioning part. If the machine vibrates, not turning on and making noise, do not use it and contact your dealer immediately.

Even when your washing machine is in complete working order, it needs to be cared for. So if the equipment stops operating, give us a call - we'll help you find the problem and determine whether repairs are necessary or if servicing will resolve all issues.

No matter how good your service is, your equipment should not only be maintained but also checked. After all, this is what keeps your machines from breaking down at an inopportune time.

Remove Finished Loads Immediately. Do not allow damp clothes to sit in the machine (this provides an ideal breeding environment for musty smells and mildew). Also, care should be taken to ensure pets or children don't climb in.

Leave the Door Open When not in use, leave the door of the washer ajar to improve air circulation inside the machine and prevent mould and mildew buildup.

Avoid Liquid Fabric Softener Useless or forego liquid fabric softeners (one teaspoon will soften a whole load). Ditto for bleach (one tablespoon for concentrated bleach, two tablespoons for regular). Remember, high-efficiency machines use less water, so less product is needed. 

Clean the Rubber Seal Clean out the washer door's rubber seal thoroughly with a half-half solution of water and vinegar regularly.  This should prevent mould from setting up shop in the seal. Next, remove the rubber seal, clean it with a toothbrush or kitchen sponge and water mixed with vinegar, dry it well with a towel, leave the door open to let it thoroughly dry.

From whom to order maintenance of washing machines?

Preventive maintenance should be done regularly. They are particularly significant if the following issues are detected: flow during machine operation; gurgling drain; off-tasty smells; clogged sink; no water heating; wringing; no circulation of water.

What, more cleaning, you ask?

Even running an empty load with some detergent and bleach will help keep the machine fresher.

Prevent mould and mildew from growing on or in your washer: remove the rubber door gasket and scrub it with a toothbrush and some household bleach. If you don't, mould spores will find their way into your machine's water tank through those tiny openings around the gasket.   

You can clean the outer shell by wiping it with a damp cloth. But avoid using abrasive chemicals for this – they can damage the surface of your machine.

Don't Overload Your Machine If you overload the machine, clothes will come out with stains, or worse - without them! This is not only dangerous to your health but also means that you're wasting water and electricity.
