Life becomes much more difficult when you don’t have a functioning washer and dryer. You might have to take extra time out of your day to use a friend’s machines or go to a laundromat if you don’t get your own machines fixed in a reasonable amount of time. At Workman Appliance Repair, we can help by providing thorough, timely washer and dryer repair, but we also know that you would prefer to avoid it if you can.
Here are a few tips that will help you keep your washer and dryer in good condition:
- Remove Lint from Dryer Vent- It’s normal for lint to build up in your dryer vent, but you should remember to remove the lint from the lint trap each time you use your dryer and get your dryer vent cleaned out about once a year. If it remains in there, your dryer will operate inefficiently (and could even cause a fire).
- Clean the Washer and Dryer- It may seem strange to clean your washer and dryer, but how can you expect a dirty machine to keep your laundry clean? Cleaning your washer and dryer will be better for your clothes and better for the appliances. It will remove debris that could cause issues within the machines.
- Avoid Overloading- It’s tempting to stuff your washer and dryer full of laundry to get things done faster, but this can cause issues. For example, it could damage the washing machine’s drum. If you want to avoid washer and dryer repair, make sure you have a reasonable amount of laundry in each load.
- Empty the Pockets of Clothing- Small items like coins, wrappers, cash, and bobby pins can clog your laundry machines and damage them, so always remember to empty the pockets of any clothing you’re going to wash.
