• Saving energy saves money and helps protect the environment. Washing your clothes in cold water rather than warm or hot water whenever possible can get your clothes just as clean and help you lower your energy costs. Most laundry detergents are formulated to clean just as well at cold temperatures.


  •   Wipe the door seal dry after every wash cycle to prevent mold build-up. Also, check occasionally the door seal for foreign material.


  •   Wash full loads. The same amount of electricity is used whether washing a partial or full load. To get the most for your money, wash full loads.



  Preventive Maintenance 


 Having preventive maintenance on your washing machine prolongs it's life and reduces the times you have to get it serviced.

Top-loading washers are more tolerant of maintenance neglect, and may not need a regular "freshening" cycle to clean door seals and bellows. During the spin cycle, a top-loading tub is free to move about inside the cabinet of the machine, using only a lip around the top of the inner basket and outer tub to keep the spinning water and clothing from spraying out over the edge. Therefore, the potentially problematic door-sealing and door-locking mechanisms used by true front-loaders are not needed. On the other hand, top-loaders use mechanical gearboxes that are more vulnerable to wear than simpler front-load motor drives.
