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.
