Most of us hardly give a second thought to our clean clothes. We toss in the dirty laundry, transfer the damp pile into the dryer, take out the clean pile of clothes, and do it all over again. We expect our washing machine to keep cranking away. But after the amount of neglect the washers receive, at some point they come to the crossroads: repair or retirement. Thankfully, there is a ton of repair and replacement options open to us.
Having a fully functional washer-dryer setup in your home is a luxury that more and more homeowners are able to enjoy. Whether you have your front-loading units stacked on top of each other or your two top-loading models placed side by side, you'll find an incomparable amount of convenience right inside your household laundry room. Driving to and from a laundromat every time you need clean clothes doesn't seem like it would be that much of a pain, but once you've experienced the comfort of doing a few loads of laundry at your own leisure right at home, it will certainly be painful to go back. That's why it's absolutely essential for you to educate yourself about all of a washing machine's major parts and functions, so that you'll be able to identify any unusual behavior and perform the appropriate washing machine repairs right away.
