How to wash quilt fabric in the front loader.

Many of the directions for washing quilt fabric suggest that you fill the machine with water first and then add the low sudsy soap.  I usually use Orvus Paste for washing quilt fabric and am afraid it is quite sudsy.  I do have some of the Orvus in a spray bottle so it does liquify when added to water.  Has anyone any suggestions for me?

You will have to experiment a little, You will use less soap and add fabric softener to the soap. The fabric softener helps decrease the sudsing action of the soap. This is not condoned by the manufacturer, but it does work.

We use a powdered soap and have found that about 1/3 the soap and just less than a 1/2 cap of softener works best. (the soap we prefer is not available in a "he" formula). Mix the soap and softener prior to adding it to the machine. works for us, hope it works for you too.

Hi, I have a LG Tromm WD-14331AD. At the start of the wash cycle, water will dispense, but not a lot. When spinning, there is hardly any water in the drum and water just stops dispensing.


A front loader only uses a very small amt of water. That's the point of front loaders. Make sure u only use a very small amt of detergent also. And use white vinegar in place of fabric softener. If washer is slow to fill you can check the filters in the supply lines. Take the water lines off the back of the washer and check the filters in the washer

Laundry Problems/Washing Machine Foaming


Have you ever taken your clothes to a laundromat?
Did you ever have or seen someone else have a machine that was foaming up all over the place during the wash cycle?
Soap suds coming out of the top load port....soap suds pushing there way out of any area they can because the machine keeps churning the water and suds keep on forming due to too much soap added to the wash....do you know that there is an easy remedy to stop this sudsy occurence...short of panicing and calling the manager over in a panic mode or even if you are at home and suds are hitting the floor at a huge pace...all you need to do is open the machine, whether it is a top load or a side door washing machine and quickly add fabric softener to the wash....instantly the foam is reduced to almost nonexistant, and the cleaning of your wash is not effected one bit by doing this.
So now you know the secret, next time should this happen to you or someone else, approach the problem and add fabric softener, you will look like the "Hero" of the laundromat!!!

The middle compartment in my drawer of the washing machine keeps filling with water and the water stays in there and won't empty by itself


This isn't unusual in the fabric softener compartment but in the other compartments it could be caused by soap residue build-up. It is wise to remove the drawer completely after every few washes and to check both the drawer and the aperture, especially the outlet holes that are exposed once the drawer is removed. Any blockages here could cause a flood while the washer is filling.

Liquid detergents cause fewer problems but many users prefer to place detergents directly in the drum with the laundry these days rather than using the drawer dispensers.

If in doubt I suggest you spend time reading the instruction leaflet and it is wise to add a white appliance engineer to your circle of friends for inside information and reasonably-priced repairs.

My washing machine fills with pieces of black matter. I have done machine clean washes and it still happens every time, covering my clothes in black pieces that look like cardboard. Please help my - the...


Hi mine does exactly the same! I have to call in my washing machine technician more often (he told me this would happen with a top loader as opposed to a front loader, boy was he right!!) and he cleans out the drum. Mostly it is the fabric softener which is too thick. I water mine down to 50/50 and I do another spin after my final wash. I also empty the filter of water at the side/bottom of the machine. This annoying problem is caused by the way the drum turns on a top loader as opposed to the front loader. My top loader cannot heat water automatically either like a front loader, and I think this also adds to the problem as hot/boiling water would dissolve all that soap/fabric softener. Hope this helps.

The compartment that you put the soap in sometimes fills with water when the load is finished


THAT MEANS ONE THING. REMOVE IT AND RUN IT IN WARM WATER, CLEAN IT OF ALL SOAP FILM AND ETC. ON THE SLOT FOR THE BLEACH AND FABRIC SOFTENER, FILL WITH WATER TO THE MAX LINE, LET IT SETTLE, THEN ADD WATER TO IT AGAIN AND SEE IF IT FLOWS THROUGH DOWN TO THE BOTTOM OF THE DISPENSER.
