Washing machines can last up to a decade, but they will reach their breaking point eventually. Whether your appliance is out of commission or you simply want a new one, you should understand how to hook it up.
If you have all of the lines already established, putting in a new washing machine could potentially be a do-it-yourself project. You simply have to hook it up to the drain and supply lines, level the machine and plug it in. If you're operating in a small space, it can be challenging to maneuver your machine. Get some helpers to lend a second pair of hands or ask the delivery people to put it into its final position. Make sure that the lines are connected correctly and that there are no leaks when the machine is on.
If you've moved into a new home or are moving your washing machine to a new location in your house, you'll want a plumbing expert to assist in this adjustment. Plumbing pipes will need to be run to the new room and professionals will have the tools required to make as little disruption as possible. These individuals will also ensure that this shift is completed appropriately the first time. This isn't a project that you should pursue on your own, as it can lead to issues further down the road if done incorrectly.
Washing machines can be easy to install on your own if you're operating with where your current fixture is located. Call your local Denver Roto-Rooter plumbing professional for any assistance hooking up a washing machine or ensuring that your appliance is operating properly.
