A washing machine, also called a washer, is used for cleaning the landry, including sheets, towels, and clothing. The term “washing machine” often refers to those that only use water as the main cleaning solution other than dry cleaning. On the other hand, dry cleaning utilizes lots of substitute cleaning fluids and is only performed by business specialists or ultrasonic cleaners.
All washing machines work by means of thermal energy, chemical reaction and mechanical energy. The mechanical energy is passed on to the load of the clothes via the agitator’s rotation in the top loader or through the plummeting action of the drum in front loaders. The wash bath’s temperature supplies the machine’s thermal energy.
Washing Machine Maintenance
The main key for washing machine maintenance is to take good care of it. You need some basic carpentry tools, baking soda and distilled white vinegar.
The first step is to inspect the fittings and hoses. Ensure that the hoses are not blistered or cracked. You must also ensure that the fittings are in excellent condition and are not corroded. The water must not be dripping in the fittings. It is best to replace the fittings and hoses once every three years as part of washing machine maintenance even if there are no problems. It is just a safety precaution so as to avoid all the future problems and hassles.
