Washing machines are one of those appliances that many people take for granted. Day in and day out it’s expected to perform flawlessly without attracting attention, until something breaks. A washing machine that needs constant repair or is on its last legs can be a huge hassle, and there are some things to look for when you suspect you washer may need replacement.
Leaking water is the most obvious and most dangerous sign of trouble. Something as simple as a broken or cracked hose, loose connection, or bad seal can send gallons of water to spill onto your floor and belongings, costing you big money.
If your washing machine makes more noise than it used to, it can be a sign that the load inside is just unbalanced, or there could be a potentially bigger issue. If the problem isn’t fixed by redistributing the load inside the washer, you may be looking at a worn out drum or motor, neither of which are cheap repairs.
Old age is possibly the most common reason for replacing your washing machine. The typical life of a washing machine spans about 11 years on average, but it’s smart to start considering a replacement after about 8 years.
If your washing machine is exhibiting any of these symptoms, it may be time to think about replacing it with something quiet and efficient. Give Buddy’s a call today at 1-866-779-5058 with any questions.
