How to better maintain your washing machine
The washing machine – επισκευή service πλυντήρια – is one of the appliances that must have a place in every home. Depending on your needs, you may have problems with your washing machine. For this reason, with the right actions on your part, it is important to prevent significant damage to your device. This way, you can give your washing machine more years of operation, without the need for any repairs.
Here are six practical tips for maintaining your washing machine. The 6 Steps!
# 1 Be careful not to fill the bucket all the way up
It is important not to overload our washing machine by placing too much laundry on it. It is good to make sure to leave a margin of 10 points (about one palm, in a horizontal position) between the clothes and the upper part of the rubber. At this point our washing machine is full. Otherwise, by overfilling the bucket, the shock absorbs and springs that hold it in the correct position wear out faster, while noises are produced during spinning.
# 2 The large amount of soap in each wash is not necessary and the right one
With new soaps, conditioners and other cleaning products it is possible to achieve the same result of cleanliness and freshness, using only one third of the amount compared to older cleaners. Higher doses of detergent gradually block the pathways inside the appliance, through which soap and water pass. This results in the malfunction of our washing machine, as well as the unpleasant odor.
# 3 After one wash, wait about an hour before restarting the washing machine for the next wash
Successive washes need sufficient time to avoid overheating of the mechanical parts in our washing machine. This ensures their longer life and that of our device as a whole.
# 4 Special cleaners every three months are a necessary complement to the maintenance of our washing machine
It is not excluded in several areas that the water contains an amount of salts that are able to adversely affect our device. Poor water quality combined with excessive use of detergents result in the accumulation of salts, detergents and other bodies inside the washing machine. To prevent such a situation, we must take care of the maintenance of our washing machine with special cleaners at regular intervals, about every three months.
# 5 Clean the door hinge after each wash
Every time a wash is completed, we make sure to clean the hose, paying special attention to its bottom, an area where water is usually retained. It is useful to leave the washing machine door open until the next use, preventing the accumulation of moisture inside our washing machine and the formation of mold.
# 6 We make rational use
Despite the possibly greater needs of each household, a proper household washing machine is to operate 300 to 350 hours per year. Intensive use of our washing machine results in more frequent malfunctions and overall reduction in the life of our appliance.
