Washer/Dryer Tips from Whirlpool

There are simple steps you can take to extend the life of your washer and dryer and keep them running at peak performance. Product experts at Whirlpool suggest:

  • Leave the lid open after each wash, which allows the basket to air-dry and get rid of residual water.
  • Clean the washer every 30 days with a product such as Affresh® washer cleaner. This will prevent the build-up of any odor-causing residue.
  • Keep the dryer’s outside exhaust clean and empty the lint filter after each use. A clogged exhaust limits a dryer’s power and increases energy use.

As always, be sure to consult your washer/dryer’s use and care guide for proper care and maintenance.
