How To Clean A Front Loading Washing Machine

There are two major types of washing machines, the top loader and the front loader. The top loading washing machine is the traditional type of washing machine that are found in most homes. They are called such because the bin where you place your laundry opens at the top of the machine.

On the other hand, front load washing machines were used before mostly for commercial purposes and these were commonly seen in laundromats. Unlike the top loader, the front load machine has a tub which opens at the front, thus the name. However, in the recent years, the front loader has gained much popularity and is now widely used in households.

No matter what type of washing machine you are using, you should give it ample care and maintenance. A previous article talked about cleaning a top loader. This time, this article is going to talk about the proper ways of cleaning a front loading washing machine. Here are some basic tips that will give you a better front loader.

Try draining it completely

Unlike top loaders which can be drained thoroughly, front load washing machines do not drain completely as the drain pipe in the latter is located at its side. With that design, some water is bound to be left inside the washer or tub. Sometimes, these remaining water may be the cause of that funky odor you have been smelling lately. To avoid this, try draining it out completely. If it does not drain out the hose, well, you can try draining it manually.

Let the moisture escape

Make it a habit to always leave the door to the washer open. Unless, of course, you are washing your laundry. Sometimes moisture is trapped inside and it causes the musty smell. Trapped moisture inside the washer is also a very attractive breeding place for molds and mildew not to mention germs and other harmful microorganism.

Use high-efficiency detergent

The kind of detergent you use is also very helpful in cleaning the front loader’s tub. No, I’m not saying that you should scrub the tub with detergent, that may cause in more lime deposits. Anyway, you should try buying high efficiency detergent, which produce less suds and less fragrance because of their high concentration.

Suds are a big factor to why you may have difficulty draining water out of the tub of your front loading washing machine. The detergent suds mix with water and make it thicker. Also, suds that are left inside the tub will harden and will cause lime deposits in the tub. Sudsy water may look cute and all but they cause problems. To avoid these problems, well, avoid the suds.

Wipe the inside of the tub

If you have the luxury of time, you can do this every after you finish doing the laundry. This way, you can be sure that the inside of the tub is really dry and that no detergent suds nor fabric conditioner remnants are there. There may also be some dirt inside the tub which came from your laundry. Clean these dirt and the like unless you want them mixing with your clothes the next time you do your laundry.

You also have to be careful in cleaning each and every nook and cranny inside the tub that may collect water and moisture. Even a little amount of moisture can lead to disaster. Remember, the enemy here are microorganisms. They are the ones to blame for dirty clothes and that musty smell. Clean even the hard to reach areas. However, if you cannot do this every after doing the laundry, you can try doing this twice a month. Then again, the more times you do it, the better.

Clean the drain pump filter

The drain pump filter is one of the parts of the front loading washing machine that receives the dirty work. Over time, you can only imagine how much dirty water and the like accumulated in the filter. Water that is never drained is still there, because where else would they go, right? Suds and all the other dirt filtered from the clothes are also there.

The drain pump filter, which is usually located at the bottom of the machine, can be taken by pulling out the drain plug. Remember to put a bucket or anything else that can catch water underneath the drain hose before pulling it out. Take out the filter and clean it. Doing this, you did not only clean the drain pump, you will also make the draining process faster without all those obstructions.

Is Clean & Pure Countertop Water Filter Really So Clean and Pure?

If you purchase a Clean & Pure countertop water filter, you expect certain things. First, since it is advertised as a maintenance free countertop water filter, you expect that the system will consistently remove contaminants for a reasonable length of time. Many people who have purchased the units were disappointed.

A maintenance free countertop water filter is a great idea for people who are busy and have little time for a lot of extra things. At a cost of $35 it seems to be a great value. But of course everything that seems good usually has a downside.

According to consumer reviews, the clean & pure countertop water filter is prone to leakage. One customer said that the system didn’t purify anything because it leaked all the water out. Another said that he contacted the company to find out what contaminants were removed. The company was forthcoming enough, in that they stated that it was not actually a water purifier. It is only designed to remove chlorine and odor.

I worry about the customers that say the maintenance free countertop water filter was the best thing they have ever purchased. It is easy to believe that since the taste is better and the odor is removed, you are completely safe. But, there are many things that can come out of the tap that can neither be smelled nor tasted. And, many of them can be deadly.

The owner can choose to purchase a better-grade pore structure cartridge at a higher price, supposedly to remove more contaminants, but the model that is sold on the Home Shopping Network does not come with that option. The name makes you think that you are getting a great product for a great deal, but the facts are somewhat different.

The Clean & Pure countertop water filter is advertised as a maintenance free countertop water filter, but it will have to be changed when it is worn out. It is said to be good for 15,000 gallons, but some customer reviews indicate otherwise.

In order to get a truly clean & pure countertop water filter, three important things should be included. First, it should be able to carry-out mechanical filtration. This process absorbs contaminants, when water passes over and moistens the fibers.

Second, whether it is a maintenance free countertop water filter or not, it should be able to perform electro kinetic absorption. This means contaminated particles produce an electrical field that can be identified and removed by the system.

Third, anything that is truly a clean & pure countertop water filter should be able to function as the site of physical absorption. Meaning when the water passes over a solid absorbent and particles will stick to the surface of the absorbent.

Carbon blocks are used in the better systems to accomplish that task. The best choice may not be a maintenance free countertop water filter, but one in which the filtration cartridges need only be replaced every three months or so.

The really low price tag on the Clean & Pure countertop water filter should be an indication that some of the technology has not been included. Don’t be one of the many who are dissatisfied. Now that you know some of the most important features, find one that will truly meet your needs.
