Last week Samsung announced it is recalling almost 3 million washing machines that could cause injury to users when used during certain circumstances. So what to do if you have a Samsung washer that might be part of the recall?
-Read this article that includes everything you need to know about the washer recall: Consumer Reports
-Call Samsung at 866-264-5636, 8am-10pm ET. Or, go to Samsung’s website for more information. Make sure you have your serial and model number available.
-Run your washing machine at lower speeds. Use the delicate or waterproof cycle especially for bulky/heavy items.
Cleaning your lint trap with each cycle helps maintain the efficiency of your dryer, but cleaning the inside of the dryer and ducts is a must to maintain the efficiency and safety of your appliance. When your dryer is not properly maintained it can cause longer drying times, overheating, and possibly a fire in your home. If you haven’t maintained your dryer properly in the last year, give us a call to set up an appointment with a technician to have your dryer deep cleaned and inspected.
