Washing Machines & Dryers Maintenance Tips
Front Loading Washers: To prevent mold or mildew growth, wipe off the rubber door seals of the appliance after each use.
All Washing Machines: To prevent the chance of stagnant water & odors in your washing machine, increase air flow through the machine by leaving the washing machine door open when not in use.
For Insurance: Consider replacing the rubber water supply hoses every five years – or whatever period the machine manufacturer recommends. Insurance companies may claim water damage from a hose leak is a result of improper maintenance, and will not cover the subsequent damage.
Dryers: To help with proper functioning, make sure dryer vent hose is not kinked or bent at a severe angle. This can come from having the dryer pushed too close to the wall. Additionally, clean the lint screen regularly.

Can you advise me on whether to fix or replace my clothes washer?
With any appliance, there comes a time where you have to make the difficult decision about whether to invest in a costly repair or purchase a new unit.
Clothes washers tend to last for about 12 years on average. If you have had your appliance about that long, it may be time to start looking into purchasing a new one. Since many new washers are more energy-efficient and require less detergent, homeowners may decide to upgrade their appliance earlier than that once issues arise.
If you are experiencing any of these other issues, it could be time to start washer shopping:
- Your washing machine is leaking excessively
- There is an abnormal amount of noise coming from your washing machine
- Your washer is moving around a lot
- There isn’t enough water flowing into your drum
- Your unit smells weird
One of the appliance repair specialists at ABC would be happy to come to your home and give you an honest assessment of whether it’s time to replace or repair your system.
What can I do to extend my clothes washer’s life?
There are a handful of things you can do to keep your washing machine working longer:
- Replace your washer’s hose every three to five years
- Make sure that your appliance is at least four inches away from the wall
- Clean your lint filter after every cycle
- Rinse soap residue off the inside of the washer with either a store-bought washing machine cleaner or with a mixture of hot water and vinegar
- Only use as much detergent as you need to wash your clothes, as excess detergent can cause wear and tear to your washer at a faster rate and can leave soap residue on your clothes
Avoid overloading your machine
