One of the unnecessary expenses we have to make in the home is replacing or repairing a washing machine. If your warranty has not yet expired, then you may well be able to have the machine repaired for free. If the warranty has expired then you may have to fork out the cost of a new washing machine. The biggest problem for washing machines is the risk of limescale that’s why all washing machine manufacturers advise using limescale remover for washing machines.
The chances are when you first purchased your washing machine you bought limescale remover such as Calgon. Many washing machine manufacturers do not recommend Calgon as it is proved useless in preventing limescale build up. Instead all repairers recommend their own brand that they have, it is usually specially formulated to work with their manufactured machines. Many customers who have bought own branded limescale remover for their washing machines have been pleasantly surprised.
For example Indesit and Hotpoint use a universal brand that they recommend to all their clients; when you speak to them over the phone they really push for you to buy 2 years worth of limescale remover. It costs cheaper to buy it over the Internet than over the phone with them. The limescale remover has had many satisfied customers who even say that it has gotten rid of foul smells coming from the washing machine drum.
