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.
Improper maintenance will cause periodical breakdown of the machines causing avoidable expenses. Some of the consumers are under the impression that warranty conditions attached to the machines will take care of the expenses in case of breakdowns. But they forget the fact that they can invoke the warranty conditions only for inherent manufacturing defects and not for defects caused by improper handling and maintenance of the machines. In many cases manufacturers find that the problems caused to the machines are not due to any deficiency on their parts, but due to sheer negligence of the users. Ultimately consumers will have to pay for the repairs or replacements of the parts in the machines, causing avoidable expenses.
