How to Properly Maintain Your Splendide® Washer, Dryer, or Combo Unit

Introduction: Regular maintenance is key to ensuring the longevity and efficient performance of your Splendide® washer, dryer, or combo unit. This guide will provide you with step-by-step instructions on how to properly maintain your appliance, so you can avoid costly repairs and keep it running smoothly.

Tools You'll Need:

  • Soft cloth
  • Mild detergent
  • White vinegar
  • Screwdriver
  • Vacuum cleaner with brush attachment

Step 1: Clean the Exterior

  1. Unplug the appliance and wait for it to cool down if it was in use.
  2. Wipe down the exterior of the appliance with a soft cloth dampened with mild detergent and water. Avoid using abrasive cleaners or scouring pads, as they can damage the finish.

Step 2: Clean the Interior

  1. For the washer, run a cleaning cycle with hot water and a cup of white vinegar to remove any buildup of detergent or fabric softener. Repeat this process every few months.
  2. For the dryer, clean the lint filter after each use to prevent lint buildup, which can reduce airflow and pose a fire hazard. Use a vacuum cleaner with a brush attachment to remove any lint from the lint trap and exhaust vent.

Step 3: Inspect and Clean the Water Inlet Filters

  1. Turn off the water supply valves.
  2. Disconnect the water inlet hoses from the back of the appliance.
  3. Remove the filters from the inlet valves and clean them with a soft brush or cloth.
  4. Reattach the filters and hoses, and turn the water supply valves back on.

Step 4: Check and Clean the Drain Pump Filter

  1. Locate the drain pump filter, which is typically located at the bottom front of the appliance.
  2. Place a shallow pan under the filter to catch any water that may spill out.
  3. Unscrew the filter cap and remove any debris or foreign objects from the filter.
  4. Clean the filter with a soft brush or cloth, and reattach it securely.

Step 5: Inspect the Door Seal

  1. Check the door seal for any signs of damage or wear.
  2. Clean the door seal with a mild detergent and water if necessary, and replace it if it is damaged.

Step 6: Check and Tighten Connections

  1. Inspect the water inlet and drain hose connections for any leaks or looseness.
  2. Tighten any loose connections using a screwdriver or pliers.

Conclusion: By following these maintenance steps regularly, you can prolong the life of your Splendide® washer, dryer, or combo unit and ensure that it continues to operate efficiently. Regular maintenance can also help you identify and address potential issues before they escalate into costly repairs.
