Manufacturers recommend periodic maintenance on most of their appliances and for good reason. We encourage following the manufacturer’s recommendations, in order to keep your appliances running smoothly and efficiently.
Some maintenance, such as belts, rollers, and idler pulleys, should be done every 5-7 years. Other maintenance should be done at shorter 3, 6, or 12-month intervals, such as water/air filter replacement, refrigerator condenser coil cleaning and dryer vent cleaning. Below is a brief summary of the most important maintenance suggestions.
Clean condensers coils every 6-12 months Change water filter every 6 months
Change Belts at 5-7 years
Replace fill hoses every 5 years
Run bleach every few weeks, too help keep mold growth down
Change belts, rollers, pulleys, glides, and bearings at 5-7 years
