Choose the right appliance 

The road to fewer appliance issues starts with choosing the right appliance. Before deciding on an appliance, research the brand and model, read reviews from people who have it, and make sure it adapts to your needs. You can check out our list of the top most reliable appliance brands for guidance. 

Install appliances properly 

The second step to having your appliance run smoothly is to have it installed properly, especially with the bigger appliances like stoves, ovens, dishwashers, washing machines, and dryer combos. These types of appliances need to connect with water and reliable electric outlets so it’s best to get a professional technician if you don’t feel sure about doing it yourself. 

Clean your appliances 

Cleaning your appliances is key to maintaining them in good shape. A cleaner appliance has fewer issues working, no blockage due to debris or damage from water, etc. As a general rule appliances with heavy use should be cleaned weekly and most appliances could benefit from a deep clean every 3 or so months/ 

Read your instruction manual 

Want to take really good care of your appliances? Then read the manual, this will tell you exactly how best to use your appliances, what extra products they need, and how to take advantage of the features they have. 

Extra tip: Never throw away a manual, at the very least keep a record of your appliance model so you can search for it online. 

Use the right detergents and extras 

When it comes to dishwashers, washing machines and dryers using the right type and amount of detergent will go a long way. It protects the machine from harmful chemicals and prevents accidents for you to clean up.

Call the pros for repairs 

If you need to repair a broken appliance and don’t know what to do, then call Maydone or your nearest appliance service. It’s better to wait for the expert than to make it worse by experimenting with your appliances.

  • This is the second time I’ve used their services, and both time was helped by Alex. He was incredibly thorough, punctual and incredibly diligent. He went above and beyond and even fixed a wobbly door under my sink. It’s always a pleasure to find a reliable and efficient service, and I would absolutely use Alex in the future!

  • Working in a veterinary clinic - we understandably go through a lot of laundry. Our washer was out of commission and within a very short period of time, Igor not only diagnosed the problem but had it fixed. He was efficient and easy to work with.
