6 mistakes to avoid with your washer dryer set

6 mistakes to avoid with your washer dryer set

Whether it's a washer-dryer set or any other product you invest a significant amount of money in, you'll want to make sure you avoid certain behaviors that could unnecessarily damage your appliances.

In order to extend the life of your washer dryer set, here are 6 mistakes to avoid - 3 for your washer and 3 for your dryer.

What not to do with your washer

Do not level it

Too many people forget or overlook the importance of keeping their washer perfectly level when installing. An improperly leveled washer could cause problems, especially when spinning, and could break your appliance faster.

Put on too many clothes

Even if you love your new washer dryer set, you don't necessarily want to spend your weekend locked in doing the laundry. However, do not overload your washer with too many clothes or blankets. Not only will the quality of the wash suffer, but the life of your appliance will suffer as well.

Put too much detergent

Just because you use more detergent doesn't mean your clothes will be cleaner, on the contrary! It could damage your clothes as well as your device.

What not to do - or what to do - with your dryer

Forget to empty your pockets

There are items in the pockets that could cause damage to your dryer, especially metal items such as paper clips. We also recommend that you pull up the zippers on the pants since the “teeth” could damage your clothes.

Ignore your filter

Frequent use of fabric softener sheets can cause a layer to form on your filter and moisture sensors. It is recommended that you clean your filter with water every now and then by rubbing gently with soap and then air drying it. Your humidity sensors should also be cleaned with a towel and mild soap.

Do not clean the dryer ventilation duct

Lint buildup in your dryer ventilation duct can not only reduce the performance of your appliance, but could even cause a fire. It is recommended to clean this duct once a year. You can contact a professional or do it yourself using a vacuum cleaner.
