How to Maintain a Washer Properly
If you are in the market for a new washing machine, then there are plenty of companies that offer high-quality products at affordable prices. But if you already have an old washer, it is likely time to consider some washer repair options. At Fix It Now Appliance Repair in 2018 we have the best solutions when it comes to maintaining your washing machine properly with the right products and techniques.
The first thing to do is make sure you are using the right products for your washer. Some of these include:
April Fresh Liquid Laundry Detergent (Tide)
Fab Ultra Downy April Fresh Fabric Softener (Tide)
These laundry detergent and fabric softeners will help with preventing wrinkles, odors, and static build-up in clothes. For a front load washer we recommend Tide Pods since they dissolve more effectively than powder or liquid versions. If you have an HE machine – High Efficiency – then keep this in mind when shopping for cleaning supplies as well because it might be different from standard machines. When washing towels always use two cups of white distilled vinegar to add some extra freshness to them by cutting down on odors.
For the exterior of your washer use an appliance cleaner spray to remove any stains or grime that builds up on it over time. This includes around buttons, door seals, and under the lid where water can collect when in use. Make sure you are wiping all surfaces dry with a soft cloth afterwards; never rub or scrub as this will cause more damage than good! If you notice mold growing anywhere then try using hydrogen peroxide followed by baking soda to get rid of it safely without causing further chemical reactions which may be harmful for people who have respiratory problems like asthma. To prevent future growths make sure both products are rinsed off completely after cleaning is complete (since vinegar has acidity).
