">All those who grew up in the 80’s and the 90’s would be vividly familiar with the sight of their mothers spending grueling hours in the bathroom beating dirt out of clothes with a wooden shaped bat, which sometimes also doubled up as a cricket bat while playing in the gully. But what we would not remember is that the hours our mothers spent washing clothes left her hands rough and her back permanently in pain. Then just like a Christmas miracle, her prayers were answered and the washing machine made an entry. Washing machines changed the entire look and feel of the Indian Middle class. The mothers also experienced a complete overnight transformation. From the sad and distressed Nirupa Roy, she became the fun-loving and friendly Farida Jalal. That is the power of washing machine, but we all know that with great power comes great responsibility. Hence, to ensure that our washing machines work seamlessly to their best capacity, we must take care of them responsibly. Here are a few tips I have seen my mother following to keep her Samsung washing machine running well for the last 7-8 years without a single glitch. Keep the Machine dry: Always ensure to wipe dry the washing machine after use. This will protect the machine from rusting and keep it running for long. Also, do not keep your washing machine in the bathroom where the floor is always wet. But, if you do not have any other option, keep the machine on a stand to avoid direct contact with the floor. Don't overload your Washing Machine: Read the owner’s manual for appropriate instructions. When you overload the machine, clothes do not get washed properly. Also, this throws the machine off balance and can lead to a lot of problems later. Keep the Washing machine on a level: It's abnormal for washing machines to vibrate intensely while washing clothes. If your washing machine is not exactly leveled, with all four legs on the floor, it may rock back and forth and vibrate strongly. This will damage the washing machine.
Clean your washing Machine regularly: It is not uncommon for dirt and detergent residue to build up inside your washing machine. Hence, one should regularly clean their washing machines. Some washing machines also have the tub cleaning mode. It does not matter if you have a fully automatic washing machine or a semi-automatic washing machine, regular cleaning is essential for the longevity of this appliance. Regular servicing: All machines require regular servicing, so even if your washing machine is working seamlessly, do not take it for granted. Just like we need to visit our doctors regularly for a routine checkup, we must ensure our washing machines also get regular servicing to function properly.
Use good quality detergents: Some of us have the misconception that the higher the foaming, the better is the cleaning. But you must know that there is no relation between foaming and cleaning. In fact, if you use any detergent which causes excessive foaming, it would damage the machine and also not allow better cleaning. So, use only high-quality detergent powder that washes effectively, and at the same time, is low foaming. A good quality detergent not only takes care of your clothes but also of your washing machine. Use Authorized service centers: Never go for local electricians or try to repair your washing machine yourself. Local electricians might use low-quality spare parts that can harm your washing machine and affect its longevity. Hence, don’t be penny wise, pound foolish. Understand the settings of your washing machine: There are generally three types of wash procedure – normal, medium and strong. But, there might be a small variation in the setting between a fully automatic washing machine and a semi-automatic washing machine. Depending on the settings of your washing machine, you need to set the right mode for washing different fabrics. By taking care of these factors, you can enjoy the advanced features of your washing machine for a long time.
