Washing Machine Madness
You’d never think your harmless washing machine could do much damage, but here at RCI we’ve come to find out that that’s not true.
Check out the safety manual – see exactly how to use it and avoid any button-pressing guessing games! Here, you’ll also be instructed not to overload. It may seem tempting to shove a huge load of laundry right in to get it out of your way, but take your time and keep your machine running at peak conditions.
Inspecting your hoses is important, too. We suggest a regular or at least seasonal routine of looking at each of the hoses to inspect for breaks/kinks/tears – anything that looks like it could result in a leak. You should replace them every 3-5 years, but that doesn’t mean they won’t give you trouble before that. *Replace rubber hoses with steel braided hoses for longer lasting, stronger solutions.
If your hose happens to break, or a seal comes loose on that stubborn front loader, you’ll be left with quite a mess!
