Generally advisable to clean the washing machine once a month, including the detergent and fabric softener compartments. The door and the rubber parts should also be cleaned with a non-abrasive product.
It is usually advisable to run a cycle with the drum empty, without clothes inside and with hot water. And the thing is, the washing machine also needs a little care so that it works correctly and its useful life can be extended much longer.
To achieve excellent results, it is advisable not to overload the washing machine If you put too much laundry on, the drum will not be able to rotate properly and may not work 100 percent.
If we fill the machine with small garments, it can also affect the balance of the drum, so it is positive to mix clothes of different sizes, introducing, for example, a towel. The same happens if we only wash a huge blanket or a quilt.
It is also important that after using the washing machine we leave the drum door open, to make it easier for it to dry inside. Thus, we will prevent moisture from accumulating.
Which always facilitates the appearance of bacteria. In this way we will help to eliminate the bad smell that some washing machines leave behind.
If the washing machine does strange things or you think it has stopped washing as well as it used to, check for any water leaks. Usually leaks are seen quickly because they go outside and leave puddles of water, but there are times when the leak can be minor and goes unnoticed.
Therefore, it is good to check the hoses. If we find an error that is easy to fix, such as a bad fit, we can fix it ourselves. If, on the other hand, we perceive something more complex, it is best to call a technician.
