All the air vents was blocked in this Whirlpool Dryer- resulting that this dryer took a very long time to dry the clothes

Tumble Dryers

· Use tumble Dryer only on rainy or cloudy days – try to air dry clothes as much as possible

· Switch your Dryer on only when you have a full load.

· Keep your dryer in a small room or in a place where there is little ventilation (outside air heats up quicker)

· Be on the alert when your dryers starts making unusual sounds – it is normally a indication that it needs new bearing and by servicing your unit it will also use less electricity.

Washing Machines

· Set water levels to half loads – it makes the concentration of the chemicals (washing power) stronger resulting in a cleaner wash. Only when washing woolens should you always stay at recommended settings?

· Wash only when there is a full load

· Sun- dry towels everyday instead of has it every time.

· Use only the cold water setting.

If the owner had this leaking heater element sorted the motor would not have burned-out.

Fridge / Freezer

· Always keep Refrigerator Full - even if you must put some water bottles inside it, once all the “stuff” has reached it temperature it actually helps to maintain the cabinet temperature at a level.

· Pack stuff inside the cabinet so that it forms a” wall” – every-time you open your refrigerator all the cold air falls out.

· Always make sure that the Fridge Gasket is sealing properly and that they are in good condition – so that hot air doesn’t gets into the refrigerator. Replacing a door gasket is not rocket science. Just measure it on the outside, send me the measurements and I will have it made-up.

· Store high usage items (milk) in a cooler box – uses icepack to keep cooler box cold.

· Make sure refrigerator operates between 2 and 8 degrees. If not have thermostat check out


· Only use it when it has a full load

· Use shorter program settings

Stoves and Ovens

· Try to cook several dishes at one time when using your oven

· To reheat rather use Microwave Oven instead of the oven

· Have a small counter top gas burner installed for everyday usage instead of using stove plates.

· Always use correct pot or pan size on plate size.
