MEMPHIS, TENNESSEE--(Marketwire - June 1, 2012) - The washer is one of the most frequently used appliances in the home, so keeping it in good working condition is important.

Here are some washing machine maintenance tips that will help keep your washer in good working condition
At-Home Washer Maintenance
Help keep your washer running effectively using these reminders:
- Adjust the level of your washing machine by turning the legs clockwise to lower them and counter-clockwise to raise them.
- Inspect your washer's cold and hot water supply hoses for cracks and deterioration frequently, especially if you have a machine that is an older model.
- Replace the supply hoses if they show signs of wear as soon as possible; replacing the hoses before they leak is a lot easier than cleaning up after they do!
- Purchase an appliance warranty from American Home Shield and help keep your home's appliances protected in the event of a malfunction.
