1 Answer

Loading clothes turns it off

The machine is on and appears to be fine. You can run it empty no problem. Then as soon as you add any garments the thing won't turn on or start. What in the world. Tried unplugging it and plugging it in again but dont know what the problem is!

Put the colour sheet in an empty mesh garment bag. It should still do the trick but not go into the trap.

Can I use bleach --if so how do I add and how much


you add bleach to the detergent and wash the garments in both. So start filling the washing machine drum, add the perscribed amount of detergent, then add the bleach, let the 2 agitate together and then add the garments. This dilutes both so that they don't damage your clothing. usually it tells you on the package how much to use, however usually a "Cap Full" will do...

Can I make the water level on my whirlpool duet washer higher?


its because of the design of the machine they are water efficient.a front load uses any where from 15 to 18 gals. compared to 40 to 50 gals.for a top load. they also have a higher spin rate than the top loader,therefore making your close dryer and having a less drying time in the dryer.energy efficient too!!

My Washing machine stains clothes; they come out with brown rusty stains. Otherwise the washing machine works fine.


I've had this problem for many months now.  Even when it ruined my favorite tops & jeans, I couldn't get myself to let go of them... Good thing though because I have found a solution!  Make a paste using cream of tartar and hydrogen peroxide.  Generously spread the paste over the stains and let sit for about 5 minutes.  Boil enough water to fully immerse the stained garment in.  While waiting for the water to boil, figure out a way to wrap/roll the garment so that the paste doesn't come off when put into the water.  You want the paste to melt onto the stain while in the hot water.  After wrapping/rolling the garment, secure it with string or thread (anything that won't melt) that doesn't have color, just in case it bleeds.  After the water has come to a full boil, immerse the garment into the hot water and let it soak.  After about 15 minutes, remove the garment from the water.  The water should still be very hot, so I use cooking tongs to get it out.  Let the garment cool down to room temperature while still rolled up.  After it has fully cooled, unwrap the garment.  There should be very little or none of the paste left on the stain.  If there is still a great deal of paste, you may want to soak it again until the paste melts a bit more.  Once the paste is gone, rinse of the garment and it should be clean & stain free.  :o)
