Reader's Digest Logo By Meghan Jones of Reader's Digest | Slide 1 of 14: You probably don't spend a ton of time with your washing machine and/or dryer—which is one of the great things about them. For the most part, you just throw clothes in, twiddle some buttons and add some detergent, and leave them be until they're done. But they're also fairly complicated machines that can wear out over time and do require upkeep and TLC. If you notice any of these issues or disruptions of the way your washer or dryer usually works, don't ignore it. Some of these issues may be quick fixes while others may require professional help—or even a new machine. But hopefully, you can avoid that by looking into these errors as soon as you notice them. Check out these toilet problems you should never ignore, too.
