How do i use LG front door washing mechine


These are very similar to top loaders, with the exception of the fact that the use a fraction of the water the older top loaders use. To work best, use the recommended amount or less of your favorite detergent that is available as an HE formula. The HE detergents to not create as much suds as the non HE types; which is required with the small amount of water the machines use. It also ensures the clothes will rinse all soap out completely. Resist the urge to use the less expensive "regular" detergent instead of the HE types - it will cost you more in the end if you don't - trust me. Like top loaders, don't overload the machine either.

When done washing clothes for the day, leave the washer door open over night - to allow the insides of the machine to dry. These doors are water tight as opposed to the top loader and allowing it to dry will prevent nasty mold from forming inside. You might consider running a clothes-less cycle with hot water and bleach to kill mold or as a preventative measure once a month or so too.

Good luck!

Do you put detergent in the frigidaire affinity front loader clean washer cycle?


Good Afternoon Jodi,

I understand that you are wondering if you put detergent in your Frigidaire Affinity washer for the clean cycle. You do not put detergent in. You will want to take the detergent cup out and put a cup of bleach in there when you run the clean cycle. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your washer status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

My Frigidaire Washing machine keeps flashing EFO in the ddisplay glass; What does that indicate?


EFO or EF0, indicates a problem with the detergent - either you're using too much, or you're not using HE detergent, which is meant for most front loaders.

What is the proper soap detergent needed for front loader samsung washer and dryers?and where to purchase?


These types of washing machine require HE (high efficiency) detergent and it is available from most supermarkets, costco, wallmart and many other stores.

Just lokok for "HE" on the front.

Detergent brand names may vary but "HE" remains.
DO NOT use regular detergent as this can and does cause many issues on these washing machines some may even require an engineer to call and fix them.

These are by far one of the best washing machine types saving both energy and time for a much better clean.

Do Frigidaire Front Load Washers require H&E detergents?


The answer is YES. Nearly all front loader washers built for consumers are rated as high efficiency because of the small amount of water and electricity they use. This small amount of water, coupled with a wash tub that does not agitate continously, followed by a high speed final spin of 1200 rpms or higher, all equate to an overall energy savings as compared to a conventional top loader. Regular detergent is formulated to be used in a wash tub with a 35 gallon capacity. So, if you use that same detergent in a wash tub that uses 5 to 7 gallons of water (such as yours), you are in effect putting about 5 times the concentration in the washer. This can lead to soap scum build up which causes odors, soap deposits that remain in your clothing and can cause skin irritation, "SUDS" errors that stop the wash program due to too much suds in the wash tub, and premature wear on the drain pump motor and seals. In fact, most front loaders will have a disclaimer added in the owner';s manual that explains this. Most manufacturers will also void the warranty if it is discovered you are using improper detergent. Use HE detergent and pay attention to the label. Some of them are double (2X) and triple (3X) concentrated. I hope this helps you.

I was told to use only HE detergent, is this true? Frigidaire front loader. My first. What happens if you use regular detergent?


the he detergent is a softer compuond, thus disolving easier, also has an alge reducing compuond, reducing the risk of mildew and unpleasant smells, if you use regular soap, you r asking fo plugged water ports.

My front loader washer displays the letters "EFO", what does it mean


It can mean one of two things. You did not use an HE ( High energy detergent) or you used to much so there are too many suds in the washer. It can also mean that if you are using warm water, the hot water is not coming in, so you would need to make sure the hoses are connected correctly, the hot water is turned all the way on and that the little filter at the end of the hose (washer end) is clean.
Thanks

Yes! any kind of liquid soap is ok for your front loader. HE soaps are just a little better in the front loaders so yes you can still use your liquid soap.

Is powder or liqued detergent better for front


They are trying to make money off you!!!!!!! LIQUID!!!! Dont ever!!! use powder soap in your front loader. Powder soap doesnt dissolve all the way and then gets into the bearings of the washer and eats them away! This caused about a 450 dollar repair for your repairman. Never use powder soap.

Can you use Oxyclean along with detergent in front loaders?


I use 2 Tablespoons of Liquid Detergent and a 1/2 to 3/4 scoop of Oxyclean and I have had good results in my Front Loader. Clothes come out very clean and there is no residue on the inside of my washer.
