Laundry Problems/Washing Machine Foaming

Have you ever taken your clothes to a laundromat?
Did you ever have or seen someone else have a machine that was foaming up all over the place during the wash cycle?
Soap suds coming out of the top load port....soap suds pushing there way out of any area they can because the machine keeps churning the water and suds keep on forming due to too much soap added to the wash....do you know that there is an easy remedy to stop this sudsy occurence...short of panicing and calling the manager over in a panic mode or even if you are at home and suds are hitting the floor at a huge pace...all you need to do is open the machine, whether it is a top load or a side door washing machine and quickly add fabric softener to the wash....instantly the foam is reduced to almost nonexistant, and the cleaning of your wash is not effected one bit by doing this.
So now you know the secret, next time should this happen to you or someone else, approach the problem and add fabric softener, you will look like the "Hero" of the laundromat!!!
Have Fun Washing Clothes!!!

Remove the bag assembly from the machine.Install the hose to the machine.The upholstery shampooer is simply a trigger assembly with a jar attached.Simply connect the back of the trigger ***'y to the end of the hose.On the attachment case is a cloth covered cap that goes on the other end of the trigger assembly.This is what creates the foam.Fill the jar with shampoo solution.Use the trigger to deposit the foam onto surface.Work the foam into fabric using soft cloth or brush.When it's dry,vacuum the foam and dirt out using the hose attachment on the suction side(front) of the machine

won't bleach clothes

Check to make sure your soap is not sudsing up if you see alot of foaming in the machine when in use switch brands. also i reccommed running the machine a few times until all suds are gone. Most users of frontloaders put way to much soap and bleach in these machines they use alot less water so you can use alot less cleaning products. Also these machines will sometimes give you a faut code if this comes across the led write it down and let me know what code came out.
