The detergent container should have instructions. Or, do you make homemade detergent and are curious about the equivalent? I recommend soap nuts. If you haven't heard of them, take the time to read about them! They are pretty cool.

This usually depends on the type and brand of detergent you use. for example if you use standard detergent and it takes 1 cup, then you use concentrated detergent and it takes 1/2 cup. you have to check the detergent container for proper amount to use. for most detergents it is around 3/4 to 1 cup of detergent.

Can i use dry detergent in my F&P model GWL11 washing machine. my husband and i have a bet on this answer


If this is a high efficiency washer you can use an HE dry detergent or an HE lignin detergent or the new pod detergents. Do not use non HE detergent in an HE machine. The difference is the amount t of suds that the detergent makes. If it is not an HE washer you can use whatever detergent you like HE or non HE. Many front load units have a adapter that you use when using dry vs. Liquid detergents.

Door gasket is black looks moldy?


Good Afternoon Friend,

I see that the door gasket on your Frigidaire Affinity washer, model# ATF7000ES, is black and looks moldy. It because the mildew is not just on the gasket, but it is in the tub and in the pump and discharge hose as well. You need to reduce/eliminate the mildew in those parts. There are a couple of things you should do to reduce the causes of mildew.

1. Run the machine once a month, using liquid bleach, on the clean-tub cycle to clean out the machine. You might need to repeat this a few times to completely clean out your machine.

2. Follow the manufacturer's instructions for the about and type of laundry detergent to use with your wash. Using too much detergent causes a buildup of detergent on the tub which encourages mildew growth.

3. After your final wash of the day, leave the door and laundry detergent open, wipe dry the gasket with a cloth.

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 refrigerator status has changed successfully.

-Best Regards-

My GE Profile washing machine leaves soap suds in the bottom and on the clothes. I use Cheer liquid detergent. My husband says it is because of placing too heavy of items, such as towels, in the machine....


Use ONLY the recommended amount of detergent per the label on the detergent.
Pour detergent in the tub first then start the water,then add the laundry.
Do not overload the machine.
Use a bathroom scale to weigh 12-15 pounds of laundry and no more.
Big tubs invite more laundry.
Don't be fooled by a big tub.

What detergent brand do you suggest with front loading washer?


We use 2x ultra ALL due to having allergies in our family. It is free of perfumes and clear of dyes. We only use 1/4 of the cup (or less) that is supplied with soap container and double rinse. That's the great thing about these washers, they use alot less water and don't need the extra soap as well. Even with the double rinse, at the end of the full cycle, we still see an occasional soap bubble near the door. Hope this helps!

you NEED to buy real washing soap from a store. I recommend Tide because you may be mixing wrong ingredients or not adding something. If buying new/real soap doesnt work i would go to a sears or email sears at their website and tell them.

Maytag a112 manual on how to add bleach AND fabric softener


Hi
Choosing Your Detergent, Bleach, and Fabric Softener..
Learn what the different items you need to wash your laundry.
Liquid Laundry Detergent and Fabric Softeners
When using liquid laundry detergent, you do not want to poor it directly on your laundry. The dyes in the liquid laundry soap could stain your clothing. You will want to start your washing machine and add the liquid laundry soap while the water is filling the washing machine.
You then can add your laundry once you have about and eighth of the washing machine tub filled. This will ensure your laundry doesn't become stained by the detergent. You should only add the amount that is poured into the cup to the fill line. When you add more, you could find yourself wading through mounds of bubbles overflowing from your washing machine.
The same reasoning applies to liquid fabric softeners. However, liquid fabric softeners are added to the washing cycle after the initial washing cycle is finished. You will want to add the fabric softener once the washing machine has filled with water and started to agitate. This keeps the fabric softener from touching the laundry and will work it into your clothing better.
Powdered Laundry Detergent
You will want to add one cup of loose laundry detergent to your washing machine in the same manner you would do the liquid laundry detergent. By doing this, the powdered laundry detergent will dissolve easier.
Bleach
When adding bleach to your laundry, there is a small triangular cup in the corner of your washing machine. By adding one cup of bleach into that dispenser, the bleach will be added to the laundry at a precise time during the wash cycle.
Setting Your Washing Machine
Most washing machines have three or four cycles. For instance, the Maytag Washer I have has four cycles, regular, permanent press, delicate, and soak.
Regular Washing Cycle
The regular cycle is used for the following types of clothes and other apparel:
• Jeans
• Towels
• Blankets
• Sheets
• Quilts
• Bedspreads
The soil types for this cycle are heavy, normal, and light. This means clothes or other articles that are lightly too heavily soiled should be washed in this cycle. This is due to the washing cycles can be set from a minimum of eight to fourteen minutes maximum. You can use all three of the water temperatures in this cycle.
1Permanent Press Washing Cycle
The permanent press washing cycle is used on the clothes that may or may not need to be ironed.
Such as:
• Blouses
• Shirts
• T-shirts
• Under garments. This would be your unmentionables and socks.
• Jackets
• Sheets
• Baby Clothing
The soil types for this wash cycle are normal and light. The washing times for the permanent press cycle are six minutes to ten minutes. You can use all three washing temperature modes for this cycle as well.
Delicate Washing Cycle
The delicate washing cycle is normally used for sweaters, cotton, silks, and other fabrics that need to be washed with care.
The soil types for the delicate cycle are normal and light. The washing times for the delicate cycle are four and six minutes. It is best to wash your delicate clothes in warm or cold water. Always wash clothing that is more than forty percent cotton in cold water to prevent shrinking.
Soak Washing Cycle
The soak cycle would be used for heavily soiled clothing, such as, football and baseball uniforms. This will help rid the uniforms of caked on mud and grass stains.
You can also use this cycle if you wish to only bleach your white's once a week or once a month with bleach.
Washing Your Laundry
Choose the cycle you need for your laundry. Add the laundry detergent, fabric softener, and bleach (remember regular liquid bleach is for white clothes only.) Start the washing machine and let fill to dissolve the dry detergent or to mix in the liquid detergent.
Now add your clothes to the washing machine. Clothes the lid so the washing machine will continue to wash your clothes.
If you are using a Laundromat, put your clothes in the washing area and shut the lid or door. Add your detergent and other cleaning items in the correct compartments. Put in the correct amount of change so the washer will start.

Which detergent for Haier HNS1260 washing machine.


Yes you can use liquid detergent, If your's is a high effeciency machine, use HE detergent. It cleans as well, but makes less suds, which can cripple a front loader. Alternative HE detergents can be made at home,if you're interested. They can be either liquid or dry. You can find the recipes on YouTube, with the search set to "Homemade Laundry Detergent". We make the dry version, and it works better than anything we can buy. It costs us .02 cents per load.
Back to your question, though. If you intend to use liquid detergent, look into your dispenser and see if there is a moveable divider that you can change for liquid or dry detergent dispensing. Set it to the appropriate setting if it does. If not, use very little detergent, and you may have to add it directly to the load, skipping the dispenser altogether. Another thing that you might consider is that, if you ever have to have any warranty type work done, and the tech discovers that you have used liquid detergent, they will want to void your warranty.

Best regards, --W/D--

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.

Laundry detergent


Why do you want to use a special detergent??? Tide works fine! You just need to use about 1/4-1/2 what is used in the American machines. Now if you really want some exceptional laundry detergent like we use in Europe, buy Persil (google it).
