commercial washing machine and equipment replacement parts

When you’re facing an expensive repair for your commercial laundry equipment, you may be tempted to save money by buying generic parts rather than those made by the equipment manufacturer.

However, that may not be the best choice for your appliances and could cost your business more money in the long run.

Here are three reasons why quality brand-name parts can maximize the efficiency and performance of your commercial laundry equipment.


They Fit Perfectly

Parts from the original equipment manufacturer (OEM) are designed specifically for the make and model of your machine. The parts are made with the same tools, materials and techniques as the original model.

Cheap, generic parts may fit your appliance, but they’re also designed to fit many other commercial laundry equipment models.

Although the generic part may work, it could do more harm than good, placing unnecessary stress on your hardworking equipment.


They’re Of Higher Quality

Top-name commercial laundry equipment manufacturers have a lot invested in their brands and reputations. The last thing they want is to provide substandard replacement parts for their products.

OEM parts give you the highest performance because they’re designed with the best manufacturing processes from highly durable materials. When you buy brand-name parts, you can be certain that you’re investing in the components best suited to your equipment.

They’re Covered Under Warranty

Most OEM parts and components come with a manufacturer’s warranty. If the part fails in any way, you can use the warranty to get a replacement.

When you purchase generic parts, you won’t have the security that a warranty provides. If the generic parts breaks, you’ll have to pay for a new one.

Additionally, using generic parts to repair your commercial laundry equipment may void the appliance’s warranty, which could put you on the hook for any future repairs.

Using brand-name parts from a reliable parts supplier is the best way to keep your commercial laundry equipment running at its best. You’ll experience fewer breakdowns, reduce the number of machines sitting idle and optimize your business’s productivity.
