Nobody likes to deal with an appliance repair bill and doing without an appliance while you wait for service can be pretty inconvenient as well. The good news is that there are a few things that you can do that can avoid some of the most common problems that lead to appliance repair.
- Tip #1: Don’t overwork the appliance. The harder your appliance has to work, the sooner something is going to wear out, break, or otherwise result in you calling for appliance repair. For example, overloading a washer and dryer can lead to a burnt-out motor, damaged bearing or drive belt, dryer drum support roller, or a host of other problems. Take the time to read the manual to learn the weight recommendation and be sure to adhere to it.
- Tip #2: Don’t neglect regular maintenance. Some tasks should be done regularly, such as cleaning the lint filter on the dryer after every load. Others, such as cleaning the coils and gaskets should be done a couple times a year. Your appliance will run more efficiently besides, saving you in utility costs as well as a costly appliance repair bill. A professional can help you schedule appliance maintenance based on your appliances and usage.
- Tip #3: Be kind to your appliances. Yes, it is tempting to slam a lid or door when you are frustrated or your arms are full. Yes, it is tempting to yank clothes out of a front-load washing machine when they are all tied up in knots. However, actions like these can have immediate consequences – a damaged switch, gasket, lid, or another part.
