Overloading a Washer or Dryer Can Cause Mechanical Issues

(MENAFN- GetNews)

Many Americans enjoy having a washing machine in their own home. This is a wonderful resource that will save time and money while making it possible to avoid going to the laundromat regularly. Many of these people don’t realize they may actually cause damage to their washer and their clothing because they are overloading. Learn more about how this can be prevented and how to protect valuable clothing from being ruined.

Clothing Isn’t Always Clean

Sometimes, it is tempting to fill the washer up as much as possible. Many owners don’t realize that their clothing will not be clean because the detergent cannot circulate. If detergent stays in one area of the washer, it can actually cause damage to the fabric on the nearest clothing. In Washington, Dewaard & Bode is available to help with appliance repair if something has gone wrong with the washer.

Avoid Damage to Clothing

Pay close attention to small holes or even fabric that has been torn when it comes out of the washer. Typically, this is caused by an overloaded  machine. It is very common for clothing to have zippers and buttons, as well as other accessories, that can attach to the other clothing in the washer and cause serious damage.

The Washer Could Be Damaged

Many people in Washington don’t realize how hard the motor has to work to agitate the clothing being washed. If the washer is too full, the motor is going to have to work harder, and it will cause an excessive strain on the washer and, eventually, to stop working.

The Detergent Won’t Completely Rinse Away

If there are too many clothes in the washer, the detergent won’t be rinsed properly, and it is going to remain on the clothing. This is likely going to cause damage to the color of the clothing. It is best to do smaller loads when possible. Of course, it is also important to remember to never underload a washer.

Always Empty the Clothing’s Pockets

Something else that needs to be remembered is to always empty pockets before doing laundry. There are going to be several items that could be stuck inside the pockets, and they will definitely come out in the wash. When this happens, these items can actually cause damage to the washing machine. It is best to avoid this all together by cleaning out pockets and keeping unwanted items from going into the washer.
