A little care and regular maintenance can help extend the life of your washer and prevent breakdowns. No matter if you have a Whirlpool, Maytag, GE, Kenmore or Samsung washer, these tips will help you to make your washer last.
Not only that, it can also prevent damage to your home. Here are the tips to making your washer last:
● Check your inlet or fill hoses every year for leaks and damage. Change your hoses every five years. Over time, rubber hoses can weaken, leak, or even burst, which can lead to catastrophic water damage in your home.
● Use HE laundry detergent in HE washers and be sure to use only the amount necessary.
● Run your machine using full-loads (but not overstuffed) as smaller loads tend to easily become unbalanced.
● Clean your machine regularly.

If your washer vibrates or moves across the floor during the spin cycle, it might be due to improper leveling, flooring or possibly a broken or worn part on your machine. Here are some things to do and parts to check in order to fix the problem yourself.
