In order to carry out preventive work on the washing machine, you must first understand which parts are subject to such a procedure.
To begin with, pay attention to the heating element (heating element) of the machine. The whole complexity of prevention is that to check it, you need to disassemble the entire structure of the washing machine. Therefore, you can find out about its condition only by some signs of the machine, such as the service life of the machine, water quality, and frequency of operation of the device. For example, if during the operation of the machine you hear a sound that is similar to the noise of a boiling kettle, it means that the heating element needs to be cleaned of scale. It is good if you have recently purchased a machine, as prevention should be carried out once a year. If your water contains a lot of minerals, then prevention should be carried out in the first year of operation of the device.
The whole point of prevention is to prevent the formation of scale on the heating element of the washing machine because this is the main cause of its breakdown. How can this be done? The easiest way is to use citric acid or vinegar. You need to take 100 g of acid (3-4 tbsp), place it in the drum of the machine, and select the cotton washing program. In this mode, the machine must go through the entire cycle of its work, it is not recommended to load the laundry in preventive mode.
There are situations when the heating element is already on the verge of a breakdown, so no prevention can return it to working condition. But, in most cases, such procedures extend the service life of the heater from one to three years. The next element that needs to be checked is the catcher. Such detail in many washing machines is located on the front panel. It is necessary to check the catcher once a month, as it can get remnants of fabric or other objects that can harm the mechanism. Before each wash, be sure to check all the pockets of your things for the presence of such small objects in them.
And the last thing you need to check is the inlet valve. To prevent such a spare part, you need to unscrew it and clean it. If after washing the powder remains in the powder receiver, water is collected for a long time or the washing procedure has become very long, it means that you need to clean the inlet valve of the machine.
Do not forget that careful handling and periodic maintenance of the equipment significantly extend its service life.
