Precautions while using washing machine
What is washing machine
. A washing machine laundry machine, clothes washer, or washer is a machine used to wash laundry, such as clothing and sheets. The term is mostly applied to machines that use water as opposed to dry cleaning which uses alternative cleaning fluids, and is performed by specialist businesses or ultrasonic cleaners.
Look for easy to use controls
. Washing machines with touchscreen controls may look pretty when you buy those, but in the long run, nothing beats large buttons with captions that are easy to read. This is particularly true if you have senior citizens in your home, who may wish to operate the washing machine from time to time. Besides, button controls also remain functional for much longer than fancy touchscreen control systems.
Look for machines that are the right size
. Know exactly how much space you will be able to allocate for keeping the washing machine. And, make sure that the dimensions of the washing machine you are buying are less than that space. Leaving some free space around the appliance will prevent overheating during extended washing sessions. Do not buy the units that have dimensions equal to or greater than the available space. This is a mistake many buyers make, only to find in chagrin later on that their bright new washing machines are too big for their homes.
The load capacity should be as much as you need
. You cannot possibly spend hours washing clothes only. So, make sure that the load capacity of the washing machine matches the combined weight of clothes you usually wash together. This will save time, and allow you to get clothes washed by using less electricity as well.
Check the hoses of the washing machine regularly
. Some washing machine manufacturers recommend replacing the hoses on the machine about every five years. Make sure that these hoses are properly connected and are working fine, and that they are replaced if needed. Look for cracking, bulging, leaking, and any other abnormal characteristics. If you notice any problems, replace the hoses at once. Be certain that you buy high quality hoses to better ensure the prevention of leaks.
Washing machine operating
. If your washing machine is operating in a way that isnt normal leaking, making strange noises, etc. , have a professional repair the appliance as soon as possible. It is better to fix the issue before it becomes a real problem. Otherwise, you could end up with a flooded home or a malfunction of the washing machine that could lead to other damages or even electrocution.
Checkpoints before starting washing
. Add liquid detergent to a white towel and the garment where you cant notice well. Then, rub together strongly. Check if the color transferred to the towel. Be careful for scarves and imported clothes since they are easily discoloring. Check for stains or partial dirt. If stains are found, use the towel wet with detergents to rub on in a single direction. Before washing, the sleeves, collar, dress hem and pockets are pre treated by brushing with detergents. The wrinkle processed clothes made of wool are specially treated by fixing them with threads before washing. The threads shall be removed after the clothes are dried.
Not washable laundry
. Even by soaking in water, neckties, brassieres, jackets, suits and coats can be easily transformed like shrinking and discoloring on the garment surfaces because they are mostly made of rayon, polynosic, cuff and their blend fabrics.
The wrinkle processed, embossed, or resin processed products are easy to transform even by soaking in water.
Easily discoloring products made of cotton and wool, wrinkled silk, leather products, leather accessory, leather ornamented clothes and its accessory.
Dont wash those clothes without handling guideline or material indication tag.
Water and Electricity Safety
. Outlets in the laundry room should have a ground fault circuit interrupter. If your home is older and doesnt have these, they are easy to install. Should you have a leak or burst hose, unplug your machines immediately.
. Wet floors are slippery floors. If you have a floor drain in the laundry area, cleaning up water becomes quite simple. If you dont be sure to clean up spills immediately.Detergents and cleaning products are also quite slippery. Even dry detergent powder can become like ball bearings underfoot. Keep a mop and broom handy.
. If your washer is a few years old, your water supply hoses are probably made of rubber which can easily crack and fray. If you see any signs of wear on rubber hoses or if they are more than five years old, they should be replaced with braided steel lines. They come in varied lengths, are not very expensive and install like a garden hose. It will only take one burst rubber hose to make you diligent about water hose quality.
Washers and Children
. Big loud machines filled with water are a magnet for children and look like a great place to play. Be sure to keep washer doors closed especially on front loading machines. There are also childproof locks that can be installed. Accidents can happen so quickly and most are preventable .
Wash pesticide soiled clothing
. Spray clothing should be changed and washed daily. The pesticides on your clothes could harm other people who touch them. Keep pesticide soiled clothing away from the family laundry and warn the person who will be washing your spray clothes of possible dangers. The person doing the laundry should wear chemical resistant gloves. Do not allow children to play in or near the contaminated clothing. Do not dry clean pesticide contaminated clothing.
Level the washing machine
. Install the washing machine at a level that is stable. An unbalanced machine can create quite a bit of rumble while spinning. Installing noise reducing pads under the washing machine will reduce the sound and the wear and tear of the appliance when in use.
Avoid using hot water
. Use warm or cold water for the wash cycle and the rinse cycle. Research has shown that most detergents work well with water that is moderately warm than hot. For clothes with tough stains, pre soaking in hot water before washing can be more effective than a hot water machine wash.
Use the right kind and quantity of detergent
. Read the instruction manual on the recommended quantity of detergent for various levels of laundry. Also check for information on detergents to avoid. For example, detergent with excess suds will reduce the washing performance in a front loading machine.
. One large load is certainly more efficient than several smaller loads, but then again dont overload the washing machine. Too many clothes can cause the machine to break down. An overloaded machine will not spin efficiently and will consume more energy.
. Clean the washing machine regularly to avoid build up of odor and detergent residue in the washing drum. Running a empty cycle with lime scale remover or 2 cups of white vinegar will help. Clean the detergent dispenser and the top rim of the wash bucket. Use an appliance washer on the external surface to keep the washing machine looking like new.
. Keep an eye out for any signs of damage in the water supply hoses or electrical wiring of the washing machine. As a precaution change the machines water hoses once every 5 years even if there are no major signs of deterioration. However, if there is a major problem in the machine, dont attempt to fix the machine yourself. Call an electrician or an appliance repair specialist. One of the most important aspects of maintaining your washing machine is to ensure that you have an extended warranty to cover expenses in case of major repairs.
Cleaning the water inlet filters
. If the washer detects that water is not entering the dispenser, an error message will show on the display. If you live in an area with hard water, this may be caused by clogged inlet filters.
Water Saving course
. Designed to address concerns on water consumption. Less water is used per wash, while continuing to deliver a clean and effective washing performance. It is certified from WELS Water Efficiency Labelling and Standards scheme in Australia.
. This unique magic Filter ensures that all the lint inside the tub is captured for top quality filtering results to deliver consistently effective cleaning results.
Top load machines
. The price of top load machines vary from Rs. 12,000 to Rs. 28,000 depending on the brand. Clothes are loaded from the top into a drum mounted vertically and rotates horizontally. It has an agitator and pulsator a propeller, for better wash quality. A major disadvantage with this type is that one cannot reuse water and hence, water usage exceeds that of semi automatic machines. Also, when the washing is in progress, one cannot add clothes without switching the machine off. The power consumption of these machines is 1500 watts per hour of usage.
. This is the most expensive with prices varying between Rs 20,000 and Rs. 73,000. Here, the cylinder is mounted horizontally and clothes are loaded through a door in front of the machine. All models have an in built heater. Also, the sound produced by these machines is low, as motors are directly attached to the drum, reducing the sound by 60 percent. One advantage with this type is that it uses less water and detergents, when compared to top load fully automatic washing machines. However, the power consumption is same as the top load variety. Here, one of the biggest challenges is maintaining the glass doors. Extra precaution also needs to be taken while shifting these machines from one place to another. IFB is one of the most popular brand in this category, followed by LG.
Select suitable water level
. After switching on the power, when select the standard program,the washing machine will execute fuzzy program automatically to detect the cloth .After detection, it can set the water level automatically. To select other water level, fi rst push the START PAUSE button, then push the WATER LEVEL button to set the water level.
Button to select suitable delay wash program
. After switching on the power, the delay time program is set to off mode automatically. If you need to set the washing procedure to be fi nished at delay time, please push the DELAY button to set the delay wash program. Refer to delay button in Page 11 for selection.
Green organic dry cleaning
. Most of the silk marketed by our company can be hand washed, and does not need dry cleaning Perchloroethylene commonly known in the trade as perc is the most commonly used solvent in the dry cleaning business. It is highly toxic and carcinogenic. Any garments dry cleaned from such chemicals should be left in an outdoor airy environment for some time so the fumes fully leave the garment Better yet, we recommend that our customers look into green dry cleaners or organic dry cleaning services that use safer and non toxic methods such as liquid CO2 or silicone based solvents
Measure the Liquid Fabric Softener
. The quantity of fabric softener you use is proportional to the size of the washer load. For a large load, pour the liquid fabric softener into the lid of the bottle up to the top fill line marked on the lid. For a medium or small load, pour to the lower fill line on the lid.
Get the Fabric Softener into the Washing Machine
. If you have a top loading washing machine, you can pour it directly into the rinse water as it begins to fill, or have it pumped into the washer from the rinse basin on top of the washer. With front loading washers, pour the fabric softener into the rinse container so it will go into the washer as the rinse cycle begins.
Dry Your Clothes and Remove Them
. Put all the clothes that are dryer safe into the dryer. If you choose a dryer based fabric softener, add 1 dryer sheet for a medium load and 2 for a large load. Put them in on top of the dryer load so they can come in contact with all the wet clothes. Dryer sheets can be used two or three times.
The newest type of dryer based fabric softener is in the form of two spiked spheres called dryer balls. These lift the clothes and help air circulate, reducing static electricity and helping the clothes dry faster. In theory, they are supposed to help soften the clothes, too, but this process works better when the dryer is at a medium or low temperature setting than with high drying temperatures.
Precautions When Using Fabric Softener and Dryer Sheets
. Do not pour colored liquid fabric softener directly onto clothes. The coloring agent can stain light colored garments.Use a stiff brush on your dryers lint trap every few loads when using dryer sheets, and wash it in hot soapy water once a month, to prevent build up of the drying agent on the lint trap.
. Most machines have preset wash programmes, such as gentle wash for delicate clothes, and water level options. You can customise and save favourite settings. These can be adjusted through rotary controls, a touchpad or a touchscreen. The first type is the cheapest.
. The spin cycle for drying is measured as revolutions per minute rpm . The higher the rpm, the better it will dry your clothes. However, this will depend on the types of clothes. For delicate clothes, the spin cycle is 300 500 rpm, while for thicker items, such as jeans, it is about 1,000 rpm.
. This feature automatically chooses the best washing conditions depending on the quantity of clothes. It detects the weight of the laundry and then determines how much water, detergent and time is required to clean the load. So, you dont need to bother with any settings.
. If the washer has an in built heater, this feature will help adjust the temperature of the water. This can prove useful in winter. Besides, hot water cleans clothes better. Some of the machines have steam setting, which helps fight dirt and stains well.
Time delay And pre soak
. Time delay allows you to load the washing machine and start it later. This is useful if you want to avoid the noise at certain times. The pre soak facility allows you to soak the clothes for a specified period, after which the wash cycle starts automatically.
Switching off the machine
. The wash ends automatically at the end of each programme at the thick line on the knob To switch the machine OFF push in the programme selector knob Porthole door can be opened only after 90 seconds Remove clothes from Inside the machine Leave door slightly ajar to dry out the inside of the machine.
Working with washing machines
. It is important to know precautions you can take when working with washing machines in order to be safe. Even professionals sometimes find themselves in danger so as a lay person it is more dangerous for you. The safety tips include the following.You need to be careful with electricity because it can kill. You should always make sure your washing machine is unplugged when you are working on it. Also know how your washing machine operates because some new washing machine modules can now give an electric shock even after the washing machine is unplugged. If you arent qualified and competent to work with electrical appliances then dont even think about taking the lid and back panel off.
Precautions to be taken
. Never leave a washing machine plugged in with the top or back off while you leave the room. Someone in the house could touch a live wire and be electrocuted.Always make sure the washing machine is not turned upside down because water can run onto electrical parts. You can lay the machine down on its back or front if you want access to the parts underneath it.Never just pull a washing machine out without checking that the fill hoses at the back are long enough. This is because many hoses arent long enough to let you pull the washing machine fully out and the plastic connectors could snap off spraying water everywhere.
Wash load sensor
. High end and larger capacity washing machines usually have a wash load sensor. The sensor can modify and reprogram the wash cycle and even balance the washing machine in case there is an overload on a particular side, which may be because of entangled fabrics. In the absence of a wash load sensor, you might notice that the machine sometimes jumps or hops sometimes as a result of a load imbalance. If your wash load is large, chances are that clothes might get entangled and create imbalance.
. Auto drain is a very useful feature as it reduces your work. You dont need to get up and drain the water yourself. Besides, it also prevents the washed clothes from remaining in the dirty water. Most fully automatic washing machines feature the auto drainage facility, while a few semi automatic machines may also have this feature.
Hot water wash
. Hot water washes clean clothes better, so some high end washing machines include the hot water wash feature. This feature is particularly useful when washing difficult stains and murky clothes.
. Before inspecting or servicing machine, power supply must be turned OFF. The servicer needs to wait for at least 3 minutes after turning the power OFF and needs to check for residual voltage with a voltage meter. The inverter capacitor or EMC filter remains charged with high voltage for some time after powering OFF. This is an imminently hazardous situation that, if not avoided, will cause severe personal injury or death.
Connecting water supply hose
. Water supply pressure must be between 100 kPa and 1000 kPa 1.0 10.0 kgf cm2 .Do not strip or crossthread when connecting inlet hose to the valve.If the water supply pressure is more than 1000 kPa, a decompression device should be installed.Periodically check the condition of the hose and replace the hose if necessary.
Caring before loading
. Combine large and small items in a load. Load large items first. Large items should not be more than half the total wash load. Do not wash single items.
. Before cleaning the washer interior, unplug the electrical power cord to avoid electrical shock hazards.Turn off the stopcock if the machine is to be left for any length of time e.g. holiday ,especially if there is no floor drain gully in the immediate vicinity.
The drain pump filter
. The drain filter collects threads and small objects left in the laundry.Check regularly that the filter is clean to ensure smooth running of your machine.
. After a while, detergents and fabric softeners leave a deposit in the drawer.It should be cleaned from time to time with a jet of running water.If necessary it can be removed completely from the machine by pressing the catch downwards and by pulling it out.To facilitate cleaning, the upper part of the fabric softener compartment can be removed.
Call a professional to fix any serious problems
. If you hear any weird noises, or it starts doing something strange, dont attempt to fix the machine yourself. You could invalidate your warranty, not to mention seriously harm yourself in the process.
Move the machine
. Check that there are at least 4 inches between your washing machine and the wall. This prevents hoses from kinking.
Keep the machine level
. A washing machine thats off kilter can vibrate, rock or walk across the floor during the spin cycle, which can damage the floor or the machine. Balance the washer by turning the legs clockwise to lower it, and counterclockwise to raise it.
Clean the lint filter
. Depending on your machine, the lint collector may be located in the agitator tube, which is the center column of most machines, or near the top of the washtub. Keep it clean to help your washer run efficiently .
Prevent musty odors and mildew
. Leave the washer lid or door open between loads to dry out the unit and keep it smelling fresh. On front loading washers wipe down the rubber seal around the door after doing your laundry.
Measure your detergent
. Read the appliance instruction manual to make sure you use the correct type and amount of detergent for your machine. Too much soap can leave residue on your clothes and cause excess wear and tear on your washer, and high efficiency washers require a special, low sudsing detergent.
Dont overload the machine
. Use the appropriate amount of water for the size of the load. Wash heavy or bulky items in small loads since these are harder on the appliance.
Do not over wash clothes
. Clothes that need just a light cleaning dont need to be washed for as long as dirty clothes, and dont need as much detergent.
Install noise reducing pads
. such as Silent Feet, under your washing machine to reduce noise and vibration from your washer.
Always sort your laundry for washing
. Separate whites, colored fabrics, synthetics,delicates, and woolens.
. 90Percent of the energy a washing machine uses goes towards heating the water. A 30?C wash could save over a third of the energy you use when compared to washing at higher temperatures.
