Over time, a washing machine undergoes a lot of wear and tear, but we hardly care. Here are a few tips to remember for eternity whilst doing your laundry. They are simple to follow.
It's tempting to throw all the load at once. BUT DO NOT DO IT. Even large capacity machines have a limit.
Detergents are made specifically for certain machine types. Pick the ones that have HE (High Efficiency) branding on the boxes.
3) Check the clothes
Empty the pockets. You do not want hard objects to damage the machine.
4) Preferred cycle
The pre-soak setting dispenses detergent before starting the main cycle, so extra-dirty loads get cleaner without going through twice.
Fill the drum with hot water and no clothes. Add a cup of bleach and run the cycle. Do this once every month.
