A level washer keeps the unit from operating off balance. Make sure that the washing machines feet are level to prevent an imbalance in the machine that may cause loud noises and added wear. This is the number one secret to washer longevity!
If your washing machine has a lint filter, remove and clean regularly to prevent clogs
Don't get greedy with your load. Overworking your washer today means buying a new one tomorrow.
Don't use too much detergent because too many soap suds will cause the washing machine to work harder and use extra energy. Detergent dissolves in water temperature over 55 degrees F.
Washing small loads with a large water level will prevent proper cleaning because there is reduced agitation.
Check Your Connections
Make sure your water faucet hardware is in good condition. Connect to them carefully; improperly threading hoses to the faucets can cause major leaks and water damage to the home. Did you know that turning faucets on and off before and after you wash can extend the life of you hoses? This also prevents hard water buildup, which will reduce the life of the hoses.
Schedule Maintenance to Replace Hoses
Rubber Hoses, over time, get worn out, brittle and leak. It is recommended that hoses be replaced every 5-7 years. They are not expensive, and are worth the trouble.
Be sure that your drain hoses are not impeded from draining. Remove kinks and other stoppages. Improper draining may cause the pump motor to overheat and burn out.
