How deep is a washing machine

How deep a washing machine is varies by model. First, there is a difference between front-loaders and top-loaders. With top loading washing machines, which have the opening to the drum at the top, the dimensions are not variable. Top loaders almost always have a depth of 60 cm. Front loading machines, which have the door at the front of the drum, have a depth of between 60 and 70 cm, including projections. Often the deeper the washing machine, the larger the drum. A deeper washing machine therefore has, in most cases, a larger fill weight; room for more laundry per wash.

How long does a washing machine last

The lifespan of a modern washing machine is generally between 10 and 13 years. However, exactly how long the washing machine will last depends on several factors, such as how often you use it and how well you maintain it. The brand can also play a big role in this. Washing machines from AEG, Siemens and Bosch tend to last longer than those from other brands. Especially Miele washing machines have a long lifespan, according to research by the Consumers’ Association. According to that research, owners of Miele washing machines do on average 16 to 17 years with their washing machine. Washing machine brands such as Miele, AEG, Siemens and Bosch are often more expensive than other brands. But because of their long lifespan, they are often worth the investment.

How deep is the drain of a washing machine

Your washing machine’s drain hose should be 15 inches into the drain pipe, but not deeper as that can cause leaks. Most drain hoses come with a support bracket. That plastic bracket helps keep the drain hose from sinking too deeply into the drain pipe. If you want to connect multiple drains to one drain pipe – for example, a washer and dryer – you will need an extra y-piece for this. Your washing machine’s manual will also tell you more about the dimensions of the drain hose and the height of the drain pipe. These measurements can help you to correctly connect your drain hose to the drain pipe.

How often should you clean a washing machine

In order to maximize the life and wash quality of your washing machine, it is important to clean it regularly. Fortunately, cleaning your washing machine sounds like a bigger job than it actually is. How often do you clean your washing machine? At least try to wipe the rubbers of your washing machine with a cloth after every wash. Dirt often sticks there, such as dust, soap scum and hair. It is also a good idea to do a boil wash once a month; a wash program at 60 degrees or higher. You can add a dash of vinegar or a cup of soda to this, this has a cleansing effect and descales your washing machine and pipes at the same time. Finally, once every six months, check the filter and rinse it clean.

In which compartment should the vinegar be placed in a washing machine

Vinegar is a cheap and environmentally friendly alternative to fabric softener. It softens the water and your laundry, ensures that the colors are better preserved, works against limescale, kills some bacteria and removes unpleasant odors and excess soap. A real miracle cure! But where in the washing machine do you add the vinegar? You can simply use the compartment for fabric softener. You can also pour a splash of vinegar into the detergent drawer every now and then – this will also loosen the soap residues. However, you cannot replace detergent with vinegar; vinegar is not suitable for removing stains and it does not kill all bacteria.

What is grease lice in a washing machine

Contrary to what you may initially think, grease lice are not actual lice. Grease lice is a yellow-gray, oily, often sticky substance left behind in the washing machine. Often this is a combination of dander, grease, detergent and hair. It causes your laundry to smell, even after it has been washed. Because grease lice are a breeding ground for bacteria, your laundry won’t clean as well. There are several things you can do to prevent grease lice; wash hot once in a while, rinse extra, don’t use too much detergent, leave the door open, wipe the rubbers (e.g. of the door) regularly and keep an eye on the filter.
