#1. Got a Smelly Washing Machine? Use Powder rather than liquids. Many Engineers prefer Ariel Powder for its effective cleaning power. Liquids and Gels may result in higher build-up of gunge, scum and smells in your domestic appliance. This one tip alone could help prevent many a washing machine repair
#2.Do a maintenance wash in your washing machine every 2 or 3 months. Select a 60-degree wash or higher and put the powder in as usual., but no clothes. This will help remove some of the bacteria and residue that builds up in most washing machines and prevent the need for a washing machine repair.
#3.Check clothes for coins, clips, pegs, credit cards etc... You would be amazed at what is found in washing machines and causes damage ranging from a simple blockage through to a flooded house and some very expensive washing machine repairs.
#4. Noises from your washing machine should not be ignored as many can be repaired easily if caught early, but will often result in a wrecked machine or expensive washing machine repair if ignored.
#5. Lift & Separate!..Not strictly a washing machine repair tip, this one is probably for novice washing machine users, (and men). Remember to separate your clothes into 3 piles. Whites, Light Colours, Dark Colours. Wash them Separately.
#6. Do you use a "colour" detergent for all your washing? If so you can maintain your washing machine and clothes better by investing in a box of Ariel Powder, one that contains bleach. Wash your white garments with this. it will help ensure your machine gets cleaned properly on a regular basis. Many people buy other products (products to help stains vanish) to make up for the bleach that is not present in Colour detergents. The best and cheapest way, in the long run, is 2 box's of powder, one for colours, one for whites. Please note I have no interest or connection with Ariel Powder, I just recommend it because it is well tested and regarded by many washing machine repair engineers.
Bonus - Tumble Dryer Tips.. Always allow your Tumble Dryer to complete the cycle, especially the last 10-minute cooling section. If you don't, it could blow the thermostats, as can clogged up fluff filters.
