Here Product Care’s experts give their tips on what you can do to add longevity:
Most families use their washing machine daily, often several times a day and therefore cleaning your washing machine once a month is essential in order to reduce the risk of blockage which can stop the machine draining properly.
Don’t forget to always carry out a service wash on your machine every three months at least. If you are unsure on how to do this, simply run your washing machine on the hottest and longest cycle and sprinkle a scoop of soda crystals into the drum. This will help prevent any build up of mould or dirt and also keep the appliance smelling fresh too.
The detergent drawer can often get neglected and is one of the areas of your appliance that can become clogged and dirty due to build-up of products. Cleaning this with an old toothbrush, soapy water and good old fashioned elbow grease will help clear any blockages that may be restricting the flow of water into your machine.
Regularly remove lint from the filter of your tumble dryer as the lint may eventually make its way into the machine. If you have a condenser tumble dryer, remember to empty the condenser unit regularly.
Undoubtedly a blessing for busy households so taking care of this valued appliance will mean clean dishes without the fuss.
The first thing to remember is that if you live in a hard water area, adjust the setting to hard-water. There are lots of simple measures you can take to extend the lifespan of your dishwasher including keeping the dishwasher salt topped up – an essential for the cleaning process.
The same goes for rinse aid – keeping it constantly topped up aids the drying process. Many people just assume that they don’t need to clean the inside of their dishwasher but protecting the spray arms is imperative as they can get blocked with food remnants. Remove the arms and clean them in warm soapy water. Cleaning the filter may seem like a grim task as it can sometimes become blocked with bits of food. If your dishwasher isn’t draining properly, checking the filter should probably be your first port of call but always make sure you have switched off the appliance at the mains.
