Washer repair pros help fold your laundry.
Most people in Texas remember to periodically clean their residential washing machines inside and out. There are also those that never miss a chance to disinfect their machines’ interiors too. But there is one area that gets neglected more times than not, which troubles our washer repair techs. Do you know which washing machine part we’re talking about? It’s the seemingly lowly hose.
They may appear insignificant at first but they’re categorically not. Without them, washing machines cannot move water and other liquids throughout their respective cycles. With that said, our washer repair team likes to think of them as silent workhorses. They literally stay behind the scenes and do a large part of the hefty lifting every time the machine is in use. However, when one breaks open or leaks, everyone notices and scrambles to call for washer repair.
To help our customers steer clear of those wet moment, we like to periodically inspect all of the machine’s hoses. Our techs also recommend replacing the hoses every few years whether they look in good shape or not. After all, signs of dry rot may not be readily visible. For instance, the hose could be weakening from the inside out. As such, it will likely appear fine on the surface but burst open the next time the washing machine is used.
As expected, hose material breaks are not the only problems that arise over time. There may be occasions when the hose’s fitting, gasket or screen fails too. If the gasket or fitting fails, they’ll undoubtedly be leaks to worry about. As for screen failures, they could exacerbate sedimentation problems. And those types of problems can ultimately damage clothes too. So to learn more about keeping washing machines’ silent workhorses in excellent shape before it’s too late, please contact us today.
