Since the washing machine was invented, people simply cannot live without it; and with the advancement of technology, it is becoming more complicated to use and more delicate to care for.
For that reason, is that here in Triple A Plaza we are going to tell you the 3 tricks that you can put into practice to get the most out of this device.
The washing machine: the most forgotten appliance in the house
Let’s be honest, we rarely clean the washing machine; only when it begins to fail is when we realize that it is necessary to keep it impeccable.
This is the first mistake we all make. And this will be the first trick we will reveal to you.
We and many more experts recommend cleaning the washing machine once a month. The first thing to do is to run a cycle with the washing machine completely empty, and if it is with hot water, better!
This will help eliminate any bacteria that are inside it. Also, you can add a few drops of white vinegar to help keep it sparkling.
Also, pour half a cup of chlorine to help remove any dirt inside the washing machine.
Remember that it is also important to clean the exterior. For this, do not use very strong products as they can put the paint at risk. In this way, you can eliminate any accumulated dirt particles and mold.
Finally, the detergent and softener compartments will also need cleaning. Take them out and scrub them with a brush and hot water.
2. How to use a washing machine
Connect the washing machine, fill it with water, put the clothes inside, put detergent and that’s it. This is how we all normally use our washing machines. However, we are doing it wrong.
We forget that the washing machines come with a manual of use, which we totally ignore, without knowing that the advice on how we should use it can help to prolong the life of it.
What should we consider?
The first thing we should know about the functionality of our washing machine is that we should not recharge it; regardless of the brand or how many liters it is, when we reload the washing machine, this causes the drum to lose its balance and the squeezing cycle does not work well.
Also, it is important that you mix the clothes that are large pieces with small ones since it will help you to circulate better and stay in balance.
If you hear some sound or see some strange movement, it is because the washing machine is unbalanced. If you do not correct the load, this will eventually cause the machine to be damaged faster.
3. Frequent review is important
It may be that the problems of the washing machine go unnoticed, but it doesn’t mean that they are not there or that they are going to fix themselves by magic.
Check the washing machine frequently; This will help you to intervene quickly if there is something wrong with it. For example, check if you have a water leak.
In general, these occur when the hoses, either the inlet or the drain, are not adjusted correctly.
If they are not changed or adjusted, this leakage of water can cause oxidation and irreparable damage to the washer. In this case, we recommend that you contact us to adjust or change the hose to your washing machine.
