9 Washing Machine Secrets

You have seen them, the B-E-A-UTIFUL new washing machines at the store.  They have lots of bells and whistles and promise you that laundry with these will be fun. But what are they not telling you?  There is something that smells of too good to be true, but you are not sure of what it is.

Here are the things to look out for when the person at Home Depot, Lowes or Sears gives you the pitch on those washers you are looking at.

Washing Machine Secrets

  1. The newer the washing machine the sooner you will see your repair person.  
  2. The older appliances last longer: new appliances are beautiful and are designed to break faster. They call it planned obsolescence.
  3. The more bells and whistles, the more it costs to buy, more to fix and they have more things to break.
  4. Simple is best – the best machine to get your laundry really clean is a simple old fashioned washing machine.
  5. The new washers have many computer boards in them – even the old fashioned looking brand new machine has multiple computer boards in it. Which means you need a whole house surge protector to keep it from breaking.
  6. Less water means less clean – if you washer does not use enough water I would not expect your clothes to be as clean.
  7. They might have glued it together .  Yes you read me right there are brand new washing machines on the market that have parts that are glued together.
  8. It will break and you should have a plan B.  Preparing for the new appliances to break will give you less stress and help you have the tools you need when it does.
  9. Don’t use the soap pods – it will break your washing machine.

Make sure you maintain your washer properly so it will last as long as possible.
