Regardless of whether you have a brand new washing machine, an old one or you are looking for a new one to replace what you have, your first task should always be to sit down with the instruction manual to find out exactly what it does.
It sounds so simple, doesn’t it? And of course, this is what we should do, but many of us are so excited to have a new washing machine that we don’t worry about reading the manual.
It might sound strange to think about doing this if you have a machine now that you are not thinking of replacing. But it could be that you don’t know all the best settings or the functions it has available for you to use.
Most of us use just one or two settings on our washing machines for the majority of the time. We get lulled into the habit of using those because those are the ones we started with. But there could be other settings that are better suited to one or more washes as and when we do them.
If you are in the process of shopping around for a new washing machine you should definitely think about reading up on all the information before you do so. Most good websites now let you download the brochure and user manual for each machine so you can see what they do before deciding whether to buy them or not. This is a good feature to take advantage of because you can see whether it has quick settings and programs as well as ones dedicated to certain materials or types of load.
This means that when you actually get a new machine you will already know what to expect from it and nothing should come as a surprise. You can then get the best use out of it because you are able to make the most of all the settings and features it has. And isn’t this the whole point of buying a brand new machine that has all the latest features on it?
So you see it pays to look through that brochure and user manual, after all, both online and when it actually arrives with the machine itself. When you do you can look forward to many years of long life using all the features your machine will give you.
