The washing machine has become a very common and indispensable part of every household. It is one of the most loaded household appliances. We can no longer imagine life without it, we take it for granted, but we often neglect to take care of it.
How to prevent a washing machine leak
As you know, it is always better to invest time and money in prevention than to engage in unnecessary repairs caused by neglectful maintenance. Taking care of your washing machine is very simple.
First of all, from time to time, check the condition of the water supply and drain hoses to make sure they are not cracked or swollen.
It’s a good idea to wipe down your washing machine seals after every wash, or at least once a week, to remove deposits that can contaminate laundry and lead to mold. Never close the door after you finish washing so that the machine can dry well. This will protect your washing machine from mold and unwanted odors, thus extending its life.
You can prevent the filter or drain hose from clogging by checking the contents of pockets, the tightness of buttons and zippers, and after washing pets or carpets by removing hair and lint stuck to the washing machine drum. Hard water causes deposits that, over time, can make it difficult or completely block the passage of the drain hose. That’s why it’s important to use a special anti-clogging agent or crystal baking soda with every wash. It is then recommended that you clean your washing machine’s filter once every quarter. Always follow the manufacturer’s instructions. First, unscrew the lid, unscrew the filter a little and let the water drain into a prepared container, such as a tray. When all the water has drained out, remove the filter and rinse it under running water.
We recommend wash the detergent and fabric softener dispenser thoroughly after each wash to prevent the formation of limescale and other deposits that foul the laundry and can make water flow difficult. In addition, these deposits can cause unpleasant odors.
Deposits also form in the washing machine as a result of frequent washing at low temperatures, so it’s important to occasionally clean and empty your washing machine at or above 60 degrees, ideally using special products designed for washing machine cleaning.
Last but not least, be sure to use quality detergents in the recommended amounts. Depending on the type of fabric, more can cause excessive foaming and cause water and powder to leak out of the hopper.
As soon as the washing machine starts to make excessive noise, smell or water leaks, the problem should be fixed immediately. Timely repair can save not only your washing machine, but also your budget.
