Common Appliance Failures in Residential Homes
Have you every experienced a leak in your home? One moment everything is working fine and the next, panic! The most common appliance failures include: Refrigerators, dishwashers and washing machines.
Refrigerator ice maker values can fail along with trim or gaskets on the door causing leaks in different areas. The fact that the refrigerator has cooling properties can make for problems.
Dishwasher supply lines can burst or buildup of food and debris can cause the drain to back up. Checking it frequently to remove food particles and debris is important. Routine checks of hoses and connections can save you money down the road.
Washing machines can be be finicky; overstuffing laundry, or excessive amounts of detergent. Checking hoses for cracks or wetness around the connections can save you from small leaks that can become big problems.
