SOURCE: powder vs. liquid laundry detergent

I was searching the net looking for the same answer - have just bought an LG front loader but wasn't certain I should be using liquid detergent - my manual refers to powder without telling you specifically to use it only. Look at the answers to the question after yours on the Fixya website "LG washer has awful mildew odour" or something similar. Solution 3 by Tresilla convinced me I should use powder! Also, the salesman who sold me the machine recommended powder because, quote, " gentler on clothes and more efficient ..." - he didn't mention the possibility of a later mildew odour which is apparently generic to front loaders!

SOURCE: Planning to purchase a pair of 3000 Series Maytag

These days, everyone offers front loading washers and dryers. The things to know about them, is that unlike the old style top loading washers (and even the very old type of front washers from 20+ years ago) is that they function much differently.

First off, remember that you should only use He (High Efficiency) detergent and that the amount you'll be using is much less as well, so you'll have to change your habit of pouring in too much, as it will cause you problems.

You'll also need to get used to the different noises, or lack of, when the washer is running. Except for the spin cycle, you'll hardly know its running. Now about the spin cycle, most front loading washers go into "turbo" mode and get going very fast, which is great since it leaves the clothes barely damp in most cases when you take them out.

Now for the not so good issues with front loading washers. You'll want to also change your wash day habits by doing starting your laundry washing with the cold water washing first and finishing with your whites or hot water washing as the last load you do. The reason for this is that front loaders tend to retain just a little bit of water in them when they're done, and by doing the hot water loads last, you give the washer the best opportunity to keep any odor forming bacteria the least chance to start with.

Another key thing that none of the front load washer makers tell you to do is, keep the door of the washer open slightly when you're done with your laundry, as the door gaskets will hold some water and that is part of where the moldy smells, that many people experience, comes from. We've found that by doing that little thing, along with an occaisional wiping out of the door bellows gasket, keeps our washer from having any nasty odors.

Some folks recommend using special tablets once a month (Whirl-out), but I have an adversion to doing a "load" without clothes and hot water, and an cleaning tablet - seems to me that kinda of defeats the whole "less energy-less cost" premise of efficient front loaders. So by leaving the door open, we've avoided all that and haven' had the odor problems at all.

OK, by now you're wondering when I'm going to give you something on the Maytags you wanted to know about! Almost any front loading washer will do a great job and provide you with a decent working life. I prefer the GE, Maytag, Whirlpool, Kenmore, etc., but really don't like the LG's. My reasoning is that the LG's seem to have more issues with torn door gaskets and error codes than the others. While the LG's look nice and most folks buy them because they're so darned pretty, they are a disappointment in where it really counts, in my opinion.

So buy any of the American made washer/dryer units mention and you'll be very pleased with them, and by the way, the Maytag 3000 series, do look pretty nice too!

Take time to read your manual with your new appliances and you'll be ahead of most folks and get the best performance out of them for years to come!

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

SOURCE: getting f21 error on my front loading 3000 series

F21 is too long to drain:: (more than 4 mins) Check your drain hose outflow into a couple of 5 gal buckets it should flow pretty fast. If not, there is both a suds sensor and the water level pressure switch that can be causing the problem. Since you do not have SUDS showing on your control panel I am assuming the suds sensor is fine. The water pressure switch itself can cause the problem even if you hear audible clicks when testing with an external hose. A clogged drain pump strainer can do the same thing. Lastly... the obvious... is the drain hose kinked???? Good luck and hope this helps.

Why does my LG top load washer have mold in the detergent area?

How do you clean a Maytag Neptune top loading washer


Tip: Prevent a Smelly Washer With Powdered Dishwasher Detergent

I have a great tip for making a smelly clothes washer smell fresh and clean, given to me by a Maytag repairman. Simply run dishwasher detergent powder, not liquid, through your machine with no clothing in it, about once or twice a month.
It works and it is cheaper than the specialized products that do the same thing. Use the same amount you would use of laundry detergent for your particular machine.

Why maytag neptune washer water pouring out soap dispenser door?


Either there is a sock stuck between the inner tub and the water
inlet to the tub or more likely you have been using to much liquid detergent and cold water wash all the time . This can cause the supply tube below the dispenser to be plugged up. Have fun cleaning it. Warm wash should always be used. Detergent needs the heated water to work properly .
only other possibility is mice building a nest if the washer hasn't
been used in along time.

Maytag quiet series 100 leaves residue and granules all over


are you using powder detergent or liquid. you may just need to switch the type of detergent you use. liquid in my opinion is better. also you may want to check the temperature of your hot water. ideal temp for proper washin is 120 degrees F. also if you run the hot water at the sink first before running the dishwasher, that will help you.

My stakable maytag washer leaves lint marks on the


new washer have what is called a washer drain protector, in other words it's a lint catcher for washers and your model has no such part. Do you use powder or liquid detergent? It seems to me that what you see is residue from too much detergent if you use powder. I've heard others with this complaint and to no avail can figure out the cause of this, at least from a view point of a simple wash.
