February 11, 2019

Dishwashers, Ice Makers and Washing Machines Run your dishwasher and washing machine at night or at off-peak times to conserve water temperature and pressure. Check all supply hoses for bulges, leaks or signs of weakness. Clean out the lint trap, if you have an older washing machine, and put a wire trap or a piece of pantyhose over the end of the hose that drains the washer.  Check to make sure that all connections are tight and leak free. Garbage Disposals Never put hard-to-grind waste into the disposal (e.g., chicken skins, bones, carrots, celery or banana peels); they will clog the drain.
