Washer Maintenance Tips

Your washer is one of your most-used plumbing fixtures in your home, and it’s crucial to perform some simple maintenance to keep it working well. Here are some easy steps you can take to making sure your washer stays at 100%.

  • Leave your washer’s door open after doing the wash until it’s totally dry. Leaving the door open will allow the washer to dry more efficiently and will prevent mold from building up.
  • If your washer has rubber hoses, replace them with braided metal hoses. These $8 hoses will greatly reduce the risk of bursting.
  • Be sure to perform a routine inspection of your washer every month. Look out for tight fittings, bulges, cracks and leaks – make sure you tighten any loose fittings and replace any damaged hoses.


Cracked seals, corrosion, blockage: we'll fix it so the problem is less likely to return.
