How to do maintenance to your laundry washer
TO PREVENT BREAKDOWN AND DELAYS
- Clean lint traps.
Lint is fiber that was separated from your shirt or jeans while washing it. If accumulated, this can create hazard and is very favorable to create fire. Use washing machine lint traps to minimize the lints.
- Clear drains.
Check the drains of the washer. There might be hairs or coins left and can create damage to the machine.
- Clear Air Vents.
Air vents will depend on your plumber if an installation is needed. However, this will aid in effective draining system of your washer.
- Check supply levels and lines to ensure that it runs smoothly.
There are powdered detergents that do not dilute thoroughly with water. If you will just place detergents whenever you use your washer, undiluted powder might mount up, thus specific concentration or level of detergency was not achieved. This might leave your linens with stains and a rewash will be needed.

Moisture if left might be the reason why your machine will get rusts. Be sure that after usage, you wipe your machine dry.
