Transform the laundry chore by using these washing machine tips to get the best out of your machine!
Washing machines have changed the way we do laundry for the better, but if the machine isn’t in tip top condition, sometimes issues can arise. Some of the common washing machine problems include:
- The water failing to drain properly
- The door not unlocking (my personal pet hate)
- The machine moving around too much when it’s on a spin cycle
- The machine developing nasty smells
All of these issues can be annoying when they occur, not least if they delay your washing plans. Whilst some washing machine problems will entail the need for an expert to help sort it out, sometimes there are things you can do to solve them yourself. In this case, help is at hand from washing machine experts, Beko. They’ve put together an informative visual guide to solving washing machine problems, plus they’ve got some great tips to help you get the most out of your washing machine, whatever make or model it is.
There are some hacks I’d never thought of, like the ‘freeze before washing’ one for fluffy fabrics – who’d have thought it! For fans of alternative stain removing methods, they recommend using good old white wine vinegar to get stains off clothing before you wash them and to use it to give your washing machine a rinse out and clean once a week. The combination of vinegar and hot water will help kill any bacteria in the machine, as well as ensure it’s kept in good condition. Anything that can prolong the life of a costly kitchen appliance has got to be good to try.
See below for the full array of washing machine tips and hacks. Let us know if there are any hacks you’re going to try to make better use of your washing machine, or any must-do tips you already use.
