Appliance Care Tips
Maintaining your appliance will not only help it last longer and prevent breakdowns, it will also improve its performance. Some maintenance tasks, such as cleaning the dryer venting and making sure that washer hoses are properly maintained can also prevent damage to your home. Follow these appliance care tips to keep your appliance at its peak performance.
Clean out your clothes dryer venting twice a year to remove any dangerous lint build-up from causing a fire.
Clean the lint screen between dryer loads.
If your dryer has a moisture sensor, occasionally clean it using a cotton ball dipped in rubbing alcohol to remove any film left by dryer sheets. Overtime, the moisture sensors can become coated with residue from the dryer sheets making it more difficult for this part to detect when your laundry is dry.
Most modern dishwashers have an internal removable filter that you need to clean manually. Cleaning the filter from your dishwasher on a regular basis will help prevent bad odors and also insure your dishes are getting as clean as possible.
Regularly cleaning the inside of your dishwasher using a specially-formulated dishwasher cleaner will help keep the inside of your dishwasher looking and smelling fresh. Ask about our selection of dishwasher cleaners at the counter.
If your dishwasher is not cleaning as well as it used to, check the holes on the spray arm to make sure they are not clogged with food particles.
Remove white spots or film on glasses by using a detergent booster containing citric acid. Sometimes these can be added along with your normal detergent.
Ranges and Ovens
Never use foil to line the bottom of your oven as it could melt and damage your oven. Instead, place a large baking sheet underneath any item you are baking to catch any spills and for easier cleanup.
Clean dirty, grungy metal gas range grates and caps by placing them inside a clean garbage bag with ¼ cup of ammonia. Let them sit in the bag for several hours to overnight. Remove the grates and caps from the bag and any stuck or cooked on residue should easily rinse off. Wipe dry with a soft cloth before replacing the parts back on the stove.
If you have an older oven, never use the self-cleaning feature of your oven a week before Thanksgiving. The self-cleaning cycle heats your oven to incredibly high temperatures which increases the chances of a part breaking on the oven. Thanksgiving is also a very busy time for appliance repair companies and they may not be able to get out to you in time to fix your oven.
Use a condenser coil cleaning brush to clean the condenser coils on your refrigerator on a regular basis. If you have pets, you may need to do this several times a year. Pet hair, dirt and dust can accumulate on the coils, making it more difficult for your refrigerator’s coil to dissipate heat and keep your refrigerator cool. Cleaning the coils will also make your refrigerator more energy efficient in addition to preventing possible breakdowns.
If you refrigerator water dispenser stops working or it is dispensing water very slowly, try changing the water filter. Over time, the filter becomes clogged with all the impurities it filters out each time you use it. Some refrigerators have an indicator light that detects when the water filter needs changing.
If you have a garage refrigerator it may stop cooling in the winter. Why? During the winter, when outside temperatures drop below 40 degrees Fahrenheit, your refrigerator senses this and stops producing the cold air that keeps your items cool and your freezer items frozen. There is a part that you can add to some models of refrigerators to prevent this from happening. Ask about this by calling our stopping by our parts store. Be sure to bring your refrigerator’s model number with you.
Washing Machines and Washers
If your washer uses rubber fill hoses, be sure to check them periodically for signs of cracks, leaks and bubbling which could indicate the hose might burst or leak. A burst washing machine hose can lead to flooding and water damage that you may not notice right away. Protect your home by switching to stainless steel washer hoses. Call or ask about these hoses at our parts store.
Destroy washing machine smells with a specially formulated washing machine cleaner. These cleaners are easy-to-use, safe and effective for your High Efficiency (HE) washer. Ask about our selection of cleaners at our parts store.
Use only HE laundry detergent in a HE washing machine and be sure to use the proper amount listed on the packaging. Using too much detergent can lead to dirtier laundry as the machine cannot disperse the extra amount of detergent during the cycle. This extra detergent is then deposited on the items inside the washer.
