How much clorox should I use in my Kenmore HE4T front loader

I made a mistake and bought the regular clorox instead of HE--can I still use it and if so, how much should I use in a load of whites? Thanks!

Most important on HE is the soap, follow the directions and remember this machine uses 20 gallons and not 70 like the old school machines, so maybe a third of normal?

How do i get rid of mold in my washer

If top load, run a washer full long cycle with out clothes and a full cup of Clorox. If a front loader, do the same thing, but then open door after the full cycle is complete. Front loaders are sealed and there is nowhere for the moisture to go..

How do you reverse the front door on a Kenmore HE4t washer?

The Kenmore HE4T washer does not have a reversible door. The matching dryer would have a reversible door.

Some newer washers do have a reversible door but it is still a very small number of washer that allow you to reverse the door.

You can not reverse the door on an HE4T washer.

New Kenmore Elite Front Loader will not get past 'Sud' cycle,

Hello wheeljc; I had the same problem when I purchased my Kenmore Elite in 2006. I have a HE4t front load. It's possible that you're using to much detergent, if you're using HE liquid it only requires a small amount and does a very good job.

Before removing try some WD40 spray on the door mechanism, not on door.

Same problem with my front loader. You have to make sure to clean out the rubber trap in the front regularly. it seems to collect alot of hair and plug the drain hole. also it helps to leave the door open when you finish washing to further reduce the stagnant water smell. Use fabric softener for the towels!

hope that helps.

Suds Suds Suds

The SUDS fault indicator is caused by using too much detergent, or the wrong type of detergent. The Kenmore Elite front loaders were designed to use HE type detergent only. When the washers first came out, manufacturers originally made the claim that you could use regular detergent if you used less of it. The manufacturers later retracted that claim because there were a lot of problems with over-sudsing. If you are not using HE detergent, you need to be. In the mean time run your machine with no load with hot water to clear the drum and drain lines of any soap residue. You may have to do this a couple of times to clear the problem. I hope this helps.
