On particularly lazy mornings, the smell of fresh laundry can really brighten up your day.
However, if your laundry isn’t smelling great despite having the most aromatic detergent on the market, it’s time to take a long, hard look at your washer. Small repairs needed for a washing machine often go unnoticed and require help from major appliance sales companies.
The following are some telltale signs that you may need a residential laundry service to repair your washer.
Rinsed Clothes Are Still Wet
Even after you rinse clothes, the load may still be wet if your washer is malfunctioning. In this case, the problem may be found in the draining pipe; a blockage or a leak may prevent the washer from rinsing clothes properly.
Bad Smelling Clothing
If the rinse cycle doesn’t complete or takes too long, drenched clothes might start to smell bad. You may not think this is a big problem until you dry the clothes and wear them the next day. The smell of stagnant water is always an indicator that the washer needs expert repair.
Repeat Cycles Are Needed
Craving that smell of meadows in your fuzzy sweaters? Running them on repeated cycles won’t help if the washing machine has a faulty part. In fact, doing so can damage the fabric of delicate clothing and can worsen the condition of the washer.
You’re Drying On The Highest Setting
Since your clothes are wetter than they should be, drying them takes more time and a higher heat setting. Not only does this affect the threads and decorations on your clothes, it is also inefficient because a high heat setting uses up more energy.
