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.
It is therefore essential for a consumer to maintain the washing machine whether it is old or new. Remember that washing machine has many moving parts as can be seen. Moving parts will cause wear and tear. Similarly the temperature of water also causes impacts on the parts of the machine. Detergents, bleaches and softeners used for washing have acid contents which will react with certain parts of the machine especially metallic parts. Residues formed after the washing process may get deposited in different places in the interiors of the machine.
