Because the contaminants get in there and corrode or sometimes insulate contacts. In either case, it usually doesn't get better, more often than not, it will get worse. And as a tech, you can go on a wild goose chase replacing parts and be out a lot of money, easily exceeding the value of the machine.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
