Whirlpool has been one of the leading appliance companies on the market for quite some time. If our customers washing appliances have broken down, we often refer them to purchase Whirlpool laundry appliances.
We recommend Whirlpool because of their reliability. Whirlpool washers and dryers usually last around 14-17 years – which is a really long time for a laundry machine! It is always important to remember that machines that are not cared for properly, are likely to have a much shorter life.
To Get the Longest Appliance Lifetime – Routine Maintenance is Required
Laundry Whirlpool Maintenance
The average washer or dryer repair ranges from $150-$300. A few minutes of monthly maintenance can really pay off when you notice your appliance is no longer breaking down as often or quickly. If an appliance is properly maintained, it will likely not have to see an appliance technician very often.
i)Always use the right amount of laundry detergent. Using too much laundry detergent can lead to problems with odours, leaks, and other mechanical malfunctions.
ii)Use a cleaner, specific for cleaning washing machines, in your washer every month
iii)The door boot is what seals your door and the machine when the door is closed. Make sure to clean this out regularly.
iv)Inspect your drain hose often for cracks. Replace the hose if you find any cracks.
