Do you want your washing machine to work well for a long time? Maintenance of the filter, seals and drum is not rocket science. It ensures fragrant laundry and saves money on repairs. How to proceed?
Litres of water and piles of detergent cannot ensure the cleanliness of the appliance itself. On the contrary. The combination of humidity, hair and other debris clogs the parts and sets the stage for the growth of dangerous bacteria and fungi. Another common problem is lime scale and unpleasant odour.
The more often you do laundry, the more you have to deal with washing machine maintenance. But don’t worry. Just follow these steps a few times per year:
We recommend cleaning the filter at least 2 times per year. If you do laundry every day, adapt the frequency accordingly and rinse the filter about every 2 months. The best way to remove the filter is shown in the manual you received with the appliance from the manufacturer.
The seal around the washing machine door is easily clogged with hair, dirt and sometimes larger “treasures” - for instance forgotten tissues.
TIP: Wipe the seal and its fold after every wash.
Leave the door open after every wash until it dries. This will remove humidity and the resulting mould and unpleasant odour.
The dispenser tends to be full of old laundry powder and fabric softener. It can even accumulate lime scale and mould.
TIP: In order to prevent the reappearance of lime scale or mould, leave the dispenser open after every load so it can dry out.
In discussion forums, you may have read about cleaning the drum with vinegar or citric acid. Be careful! Vinegar and acid can irreparably damage the drum, filter and rubber seal. Therefore, it is better to invest in special cleaning powder.
You can choose from the following types:
TIP: Do you have hard water at home? Install a magnetic descaler on the water inlet hose. It will protect the appliance from lime scale and extend its lifetime.
Does it sound complicated? It’s not! Each of these tasks takes just a few minutes. It will pay off with a longer lifetime for your washing machine and the joy of fragrant laundry.
