Is it Time to Upgrade Your Washer and Dryer?

The truth is your washer and dryer do have a lifespan — and that is between eight and ten years. By going past your washer and dryers prime age, you could be wasting your money and energy in the long run.

If you are noticing any of the below from your trusty washer and dryer— it might be time for an upgrade:

Constant Leaks

A washing machine leak could be just a loose hose or an overfilled tub — but if both issues are ruled out, the problem could lie in the tub itself. If you’re continually noticing a drip or leak of water everytime you do a load of laundry — you’ll want to call an expert or look for replacements.

Clothes Won’t Dry

The first and most common cause to a dryer that isn’t entirely doing its job is a clogged vent. To rule out any easy fixes, check the vent outdoors for proper air flow, and the air ducts behind the dryer for any kinks or bends. If you find that airflow is steady, and the air ducts are fine — your dryer may have reached the end of its lifespan.

It Makes a Ton of Noise

If it sounds like your dryer is about to clunk its way across your room — there is an issue you don’t wont to ignore. The easiest and sometimes most common problem is an un-level machine. If your machine is level, and you are still hearing clunking and banging no matter the load size, you’ll want to call a professional or get a replacement.
