High Efficiency Washer Care and Maintenance Tips

The new high efficiency front loading washers have gained popularity for handling larger loads, using less water and they are gentle on clothes


 Temperance OH – The local washer repair technician with Dave Smith Appliance Repair keeps up with the latest technology to ensure quality service for all appliances, old and new. From grandma’s old wringer washer to the new, high-efficiency (HE) front loading models, he knows them all and can fix most problems.

Years ago front loading washing machines were only used in public laundry facilities. Now they can be found in many homes. A common complaints addressed by the washer repair man is odor. With top loaders, it is easy to keep the door open to air it out, but with front loaders, the open door can get in the way. Unfortunately, it is necessary to leave it open as much as possible to allow moisture to escape. The warm, wet interior is a hotbed for mold and mildew to grow.

For best results with an HE washer local experts with Dave Smith Appliance Repair (http://www.appliancerepairmonroemi.com/) suggest using only “high efficiency” detergent. It does cost more, but so did the machine! The super concentrated HE detergent produces less suds and has less fragrance that regular detergents. The suds produced by regular detergents acts like sludge to water draining out of the tub.

The washer repair man suggests using bleach mixed with water to wipe down the interior of the machine, inside the door and around the rubber door seal. Water can sit in the small grooves and allow mildew to grow, causing odor.

Some front loader washers have a “tub clean” feature. Those that do not should be cleaned once a month by running the machine empty, on its hottest cycle, with bleach and water.

The neighborhood washer repair man warns residents about the danger of trying to fix a washer without proper knowledge. The combination of water and electricity make this a hazardous endeavor for someone who doesn’t know what they are doing. If the unit is still under warranty, then the coverage can be denied if they should do further damage. It is best to call a qualified service technician when their expertise is needed.
