Tip #272

Check washer hoses regularly for cracks that could result in leaks. Better yet - install a new set of burst-proof hoses. They are steel wrapped and are less vulnerable to vibration. Include an ENERGY STAR® washing machine in your purchase and your clothes will be cleaner and your laundry room floor will stay dry.
