Frequently Asked Questions

  1. Should I replace my washing machine hoses?
    Check the hoses to see if they have any leaks, cracks, or bulges. Leave at least 4 inches clearance from the wall to prevent hose damage. Robertson Electric recommends replacing hoses with stainless steel washer hoses to avoid the potential leaks and deterioration of rubber hoses.
  2. Does my garbage disposal need any maintenance?
    To keep your disposal in good working order:

    • Run water before and after grinding food.
    • Use cold water when you grind food. Hot water melts fats and can clog the disposal and pipes..
    • Don’t grind coffee grounds, bones, or overly fibrous materials..
    • Never use your hand to remove something from the disposal. Use tongs or pliers.

    Grinding ice cubes in your disposal will help keep it clean and grinding a lemon will deodorize it.
