How to tell if you need a new washer or dryer
“If you notice clothes are not cleaning properly, such as marks on clothes or stains not being removed, this is a tell-tale sign,” says Brad Reed, Senior Marketing Manager of Home Appliances at LG Electronics Australia.
“Furthermore, if the washing machine is making strange noises or not completing cycles, it may be time to look at replacing the appliance.”
Brad says dryers tend to have a long lifespan, working right up until the day they simply stop working. But you might want to look at an upgrade anyway.
“Consumers should be aware of the amount of energy their dryer is consuming and look at upgrading to an energy-efficient model,” he says. “Heat pump dryer technology is highly energy efficient compared to traditional condenser dryers and, currently, LG Electronics sells only heat pump dryer models in Australia.”
