Washer Repair Clint TX:  Washing Machine Tips to Save Money

Attempting to repair a washing machine without proper training is dangerous. Washing machines should only be repaired by skilled professionals. Repairs performed by unqualified people could cause serious injury or even death.
To reduce the need of repairs, proper maintenance and care is essential in keeping your washing machine running efficiently. Improper care will cause your unit to overwork causing premature failure and costly repairs. By following these tips, you can prolong the life or your appliance.

Check the washer machine’s feet for level to prevent an imbalance in the machine that may cause loud noises and added wear on the washer.
Check water faucets are in good condition. Improperly connecting to the faucets can cause major water damage to the home.

Hoses, over time, get worn out, brittle and leak. Manufacturers recommend that hoses be replaced every 5 years.
Check to ensure drain hoses sit properly in the stand pipe within your wall. Remove kinks and other stoppages. Improper draining may cause the pump to overheat and burn out.
Do not overload with clothes because the added weight will drastically reduce the life of the washer.

Use the proper amount of detergent for your washer and water hardness. Don't use too much detergent because too many soap suds will cause the washing machine to work hard. Use HE soap if your washer requires it.  Remember less is more with todays soaps.
Save money and energy by washing in warm water. Washing clothes in hot water uses twice as much energy as washing in warm water.

Washing one large load is more efficient than washing two smaller loads, especially on front load washers. But dont over load the washer.
Washing small loads with a large water level will prevent proper cleaning.

Check that the spin cycle is spinning properly. Run an extra spin cycle if available. Doing this reduces dry time thereby reducing energy consumption. Putting wet clothes in the dryer will use more energy.

Check belts regularly to see if they need replacement. Worn or stretched belts can cause failure of expensive mechanical parts.
