What do I need to look for to keep my washing machine from causing a flood?
Your washing machine is an appliance that can cause major damage to your home if a flood occurs from it.
1) Always operate your washing machine when someone is home, do not turn it on and leave.
2) If you are going to be away from your home for more than 24 hours turn off the supply valves.
3) Check the hoses behind the washer at least every six months to ensure that they are not kinked and could cause a crack and a future flood.
4) It is recommended that these hoses be replaced at least every five years. We cannot see any potential problems on the inside and they do deteriorate over time. When you do replace the hoses, put a piece of tape / label on them stating the replacement date for future follow up.
