Tip & How-To about Washing Machines
Washers built today use less water and energy than ever. With this reduction in water a reduction in detergent is needed. Detergent manufactures along with the assistance of appliance manufactures have developed HE or high efficiency detergents to use in the washing machines we buy today.
This detergent is low sudings and is very concentrated to effectively and efficiently clean your laundry. Always use the recommended amount on the label and no more. Do not use not HE detergents or additives that are not recommended for high efficiency machines or sudings may occur.
The over sudsings can cause poor washing, odors due to residue left in the machine and on laundry and poor drying as the washer may not be able to extract the maximum amount of water from the clothes. Washer failures caused by excessive suds can include odors, premature bearing wear, motor failure and an array of failure codes that can be hard to troubleshoot at times.

Because ASKO washers use less water than conventional top-loading washers, you need less detergent and fabric softener. We recommend that you use a low-sudsing powder detergent only, preferably a high-efficiency (HE) detergent designed specifically for front-loading washers.
**(Liquid detergents tend to suds more, which make them more difficult to rinse out.)**
Detergent - The amount of detergent needed varies, depending on the detergent you use. For high-efficiency detergent specifically for front-loading washers, you should use the amounts recommended by the manufacturer.
Also, the amount of detergent needed can vary due to differences in water hardness. (Refer to the Use and Care Guide for more details.) If you choose to use a liquid detergent, start out with a very small amount, such as one or two tablespoons.
