How to Maintain Your Washer and Dryer
One of the most expensive purchases a new homeowner will make is their washer and dryer set. These appliances are designed to last for many years, but without maintaining a regular cleaning and repair schedule, you could be facing more problems than just replacing your appliances. According to the National Fire Protection Association, over 16,000 fires are started every year because of improperly maintained washers and dryers. Flooding can also be a problem if your washer isn’t taken care of. Here are some tips to make sure you don’t have to face any of these serious issues.
Clean your washer regularly with a vinegar and water mixture. This reduces the chance that mildew or even harmful molds will develop in the nooks and crannies inside your machine. If mold does grow in your machine, it could get on your clothes and make you sick, and lead to the eventual breakdown of the machine itself. A weekly splash of vinegar will keep your machine smelling great and in perfect condition.
Level your machines to reduce “walking”. If you’ve ever come home to what sounds like a bowling ball in your washer or dryer, you’ll know exactly what we mean. Those juddering machines are typically caused by a washer or dryer that’s been thrown out of whack by a load that was too large or unevenly balanced. Leveling your machines and placing them on a wooden pallet with a lip to keep them in place will take care of this problem.
Clean your dryer vent. This is a very important step to maintaining your dryer. A clogged dryer vent is a safety hazard that can cause a serious house fire in seconds. In addition to cleaning the lint trap and the vent inside your house on a regular basis, it’s also a good idea to remove the entire duct once a year and clean it thoroughly. The fires from dryer vents are responsible for up to 1.9 percent of deaths every year, so this is a vital chore that should not be overlooked.
Replace old fixtures with safer versions. If the hoses on your washer and dryer are cracked or crimped, replacing them can save you costly repairs later. Vinyl dryer vents should be replaced with updated metal models, and you can also replace rubber hoses with metal versions to reduce the risk of bursting.
Use the proper detergent. This is an easy fix that can save you quite a lot of headache in the future. Most washing detergent you see in the grocery aisle is safe to use for your machine, but using detergent that is made for HE models is the best way to make your washer last. Non-HE detergent causes a film to build up inside your machine and creates a lot of suds that can cause flooding. Remember to use only the minimum amount you need for each load to avoid a big mess.
