Safely Storing Washers and Dryers

If you are preparing your washer and dryer for long-term storage, there are a number of tips you should follow in order for your machine to function properly and effectively when you come to use it again. At Cheap Storage London, we’ve put together some all-important tips on storing your much-needed machines. Read on to find out more!

Run A Cycle

In order for your machine to drain properly, run it through an empty cycle. This will clean out the entire insides of the machine and anything that’s been left in there (i.e. fluff, debris and residue). After this, follow any specific instructions that the user manual provides in draining and shutting down your machine properly. If you do it correctly, it will avoid any problems down the line.

Properly Disconnect Your Washer or Dryer

It should be simple enough to disconnect your machine if you’re moving or storing a drying machine – especially if you follow the instructions or user manual. Usually, you simply unplug the machine from the socket. However, if you’re doing this with a washing machine, you will need to ensure that all the water is fully drained and disconnect the hose appropriately. The instructions on how to do so can be found in the user manual. If you no longer have an original copy, you should be able to find the details on how to do so online. It’s highly important to disconnect your machine properly as it can easily become damaged if not done so.

Move Your Machines Carefully

If you’re moving your machines to an entirely new storage location, it’s so important to ensure they are moved carefully. If they are dropped or bumped in any way, you may find that it affects the overall performance of the machine. With this in mind, you may want to consider enlisting the help of professional and experienced movers such as Cheap Storage London.

You must ensure that the storage and moving company you use are reputable and experienced – otherwise, you may end up with damaged goods. At Cheap Storage London, we are highly professional and cost-effective.
