Not every washing machine is calibrated at the factory. And that’s not a bad thing, because by calibrating at home, it is done more accurately. That’s why it’s important to calibrate your washing machine anyway when you’ve just plugged it in. Next, there is no standard recommendation for how often you should repeat this. Calibrating a washing machine can help you avoid unnecessary vibration and noise from your washing machine. Therefore, we recommend calibrating your washing machine when you feel that it produces too much noise. Because calibrating your washing machine can also make it more energy efficient, it can do no harm to repeat this once in a while.
