Spring is here, and with it comes anew the human need to clean, organize, repair and refresh. We manage our outdoor settings very well in the area – from hedge trimming, to lawn mowing, to exterior painting.
But what about interiors? After you mop the floor, check the filters, clean the oven and unclog the drains, what’s left? Plenty! Homeowners learn over time that if they neglect the upkeep and maintenance of their household appliances, they will break down at unexpected times. Even though common household appliances like washing machine and dryers, refrigerators, dishwashers, freezers, cooking ranges and other household appliances are expected to last, without proper upkeep, they will break down.
So take the opportunity with Spring’s arrival to doublecheck your key home appliances. Here are a few tips to make sure you know what to look for:
If you have a leak, check these: the inlet valve, the motor shaft water seal, the door latch and the water inlet tubing. Inlet valves can get clogged when a small piece of debris gets caught in the tubing. The motor shaft water seal helps prevent water from seeping through. Sometimes, a leak will develop where the water supply tubing is connected at the water inlet valve.
