These problems could easily be avoided if you regularly follow these washing machine maintenance tips.

  • Don’t Overload the Washing Machine

Often to save time and effort; we put all our clothes for washing in one load. This practice does more harm to both clothes and machines than good. Overloading could shorten the washing machine’s life due to more wear and tear on its different mechanical parts. Your clothes cannot move around if there is no space leaving them unclean and will need rewashing. 

Overfilling the machine eventually leads to motor and frame damage. The weight also causes stress to the drum and can throw it out of alignment. If your washing machine needs repair or its service is due, you can book a washing machine repair request at OneDios within 60 seconds.

  • Use Right Detergent in the Right Amount

Using the right detergent and in the right amount matters in the longevity of your washing machine. The detergent you choose depends on your washing machine and its specifications. Detergents are machine specific – top or front loader. Choose wisely acc. to your machine to operate smoothly in the long run. OneDios app is a one-stop shop for all your service, complaints, repair, and extended warranty requests. 

Too much detergent does not mean cleaner clothes and can leave residue on clothing and shorter the lifespan of clothes and machines. Too much detergent also damages the drum and can cause blockages. The washing machine has to work harder, and rinsing such clothes needs an extra rinse cycle, which uses more energy. Always measure and add the detergent as per the manufacturer’s recommendation.

  • Always Check the Pockets

Always check the pockets of your clothes before putting them in the washing machine for a wash. Not only are your belongings damaged, but these items can also damage the machine. If washed, money, credit cards, and actual receipts make you lose quite a lot. Tissue and paper left in your pockets have a habit of getting stuck to all your clothes. Small items like keys, pens, coins, and toothpicks can bounce against the drum, damaging it or even getting stuck somewhere and stopping the washing machine from working.

  • Clean the Lint Filter Regularly

The lint filter collects all the lint and dirt found on the clothes in the washing machine. It is important to clean the lint filter once every few days.

  • Quickly Remove Wet Clothes

Clothes should be removed immediately after washing to prevent mold and mildew growth. Clothes start smelling and moisture causes mold to grow inside the machine. Mold spores can cause damage to the seal. You can download the Onedios app and call a washing machine service expert here.

Additionally, keep the machine door open after washing to give the machine a chance to dry. It prevents the washing machine from building up bacteria and molds and smelling foul.

  • Clean and Descale your Washing Machine

If you do not clean your washer, debris, such as dust, dirt, and soap can build up. It not only poses health risks and smells foul, but it can also harm your washing machine. Since detergent, hard water, and lint can build up on the insides of the washing machine, it is essential to remove them by cleaning the interiors, such as the drum, rubber gaskets, and dispensers. 

It would be best if you used a descaling solution once every few months to remove scaling without damaging the internal components. You can also use a mix of baking soda and white vinegar, added to warm water to the washing machine, and run an empty load for descaling.

Keeping the washing machine clean from the outside is equally important. Detergent and water residue can cause stains to appear on the washing machine. Download the OneDios app or book an appointment online for washing machine service or repair.

You can adjust your washing machine’s feet or call a professional to help fix the problem. Unusual sounds are a general sign that the washing machine needs repair.
