Question about Washing Machines

Washing machine not using detergent...

I'm re-posting this, hopefully into ''Washing Machines'', as I managed to get it into ''Dishwashers'' before...Doh!

I'm hoping someone can help with a solution to the following...

I have a 2nd-hand Servis Easi-Logic 1300 that has just finished its 1st wash cycle with me. However, none of the detergent (powder) in the drawer was used! The fabric conditioner was taken ok. The person I got it from has gone on holiday, so I'm unable to ask them - though as far as I'm aware, it was working fine & they're a friend, so wouldn't ''do the dirty(!)'' on me...

I'm in the UK & aware that the company closed down last year, & have also been unable to find a manual - any hints on that one?

With thanks for your time & consideration...

Washing Machine Detergent


There are many questions about the type and the amount of washing machine detergent that is needed. Whether you are using a top loading washing machine or a front loading washing machine it does make a difference as to what and how much detergent to use.

Generally speaking a front loader washing machine will need to have less detergent then a top loader washing machine. Combine this with the water savings of the front load washing machine and you will get a substantial savings. However the front loading washer may be much more sensitive to many detergents. The recommendation of many manufacturers is to use HE detergent. This is designed to give less suds then many other detergents.

This is true but the use if the special detergent is not necessary. With the front loading washer you can decrease the amount of detergent used and still get great results. With warmer water you also can get better cleaning from less detergent. If you want you can also mix your fabric softener with the detergent and the fabric softener will keep the suds down for you.

If you have a top loading washer then you may want to experiment with using less detergent then you have thought would work in the past. By using warm of hot water you also can reduce the amount of detergent used and get great results.

Today’s high efficiency washers are very effective clothes washing machines. You can wash clothes with far less detergent in these efficient cleaning machines. Remember that the new machines are very sensitive to excessive suds and will even stop to allow the suds to go down before continuing on. More is not always better and with the washing machine of today, more may make it take a very long time to wash that load of clothing.

Hi I have this error displayed in my machine. Can you tell me what causes this? Could it be because we use too much washing powder? Thanks


You did not post the error BUT if it is a front load machine you must use detergent that says "He" That detergent wont produce a bunch of suds.

Suds leaking from detergent drawer on brand new Bosch washing machine


Use high efficiency detergent that s more concentrated. It uses MUCH lesser detergent VoLUME than conventional. The detergent has "He" letter on the bottle. And usually with FULl load it uses only about 150+-cc ( my cup is on 3marked level provided by the detergent bottle) Hope this helps! Robert Calgary, AB

It is FO 2 its happpend twice no papper work for it?


Hello there and thank you for choosing fixya
Depending upon the type of washing machine, you may notice an "F21" or "F02" error code. An "F21" or "F02" error code is indicative of a slow draining cycle, normally caused by a clogged or kinked drain hose. If an "F21" or "F02" error code appears, check the drain hose on the back of your washer to ensure that it is not clogged or bent. Once the drain hose has been unblocked, the error code should disappear and the machine drain properly. However, if you have a high efficiency washing machine and the error code continues to appear, make sure you are using the correct detergent; because high efficiency machines use much less water than traditional washing machines, they require the use of a low sudsing detergent. Traditional detergents may produce too many suds, which can block the machine's drain hose and lead to slower draining cycles.
Please feel free to post me a comment back if you need help with the dissasembly of this ok?
best regards Mike

Door is wet with condensation at the end of the cycle although dishes are dry


this problem should be under dishwashers not washing machines! however this is caused by lack of rinse agent this aids the drying process and removes moisture from crockery check levels if ok try using detergents with salt and rinse aid combined may be dispenser is not working properly.

Bosch maxx classic washing machine doesn't clean clothes


There are a lot of things to consider when trying to solve this problem. Obviously a front loader washes differently than a top loader. Top loaders tend to using a washing motion that is good for stains but wear out your clothes fast. Front loaders typically use less water and wash more gently, but in some ways still do better than top loaders. Anyway, think about any other variables that go into the laundry equation. Consider the distance the machine is from your water heater. This machine will use MUCH less water to fill than your old one, and, you know how when you turn a faucet on hot it takes a minute for the hot water to actually get there? It's the same way with your machine. If there's a sink next your washer, you should always turn on the hot water on the faucet until it gets hot right before you start the machine. The same goes for dishwashers. If there's not a sink close you can easily turn up the temperature for all hot water on your water heater, although that will use more energy.
Consider what detergent you're using. If you're using high efficiency detergent (like Tide he) maybe you should switch to your old brand. If you're using your old brand of detergent, try getting a high efficiency detergent.

Same problem with our LG Tromm


I had the same problem with my LG Tromm and was ready to throw away every one of my towels they were so rank smelling. As a last resort I filled the detergent area with one cup of white vinegar and ran a load through on hot. Then I washed them with just a tablespoon at most of detergent. They came out smelling fine, the mildew smell was completely gone. How long it will last, I don't know.

I also read somewhere recently that we all use way too much detergent in our washers and dishwashers. And surprise, surprise, the post went on to say that too much detergent in your towels/clothes can leave a musty, mildewy smell in them.

Now when I do laundry, no matter what it is, I use about 1/4 of the amount of detergent called for, even though the HE uses so much less. In all, maybe 1-2 Tbsp, and everything comes out just as clean.

Also, try using a product from Clorox just for front loading washing machines. It's Clorox Washing Machine cleaner...it seemed to help with the overall smell. And I agree, I will never buy this particular machine again.

What to use in my washer?


If your washer is rated for HE detergent, then you're supposed to use HE detergent. The reason being is that HE detergent is concentrated and specifically made for washing machines that use LESS water than conventional washers. Regular detergents are formulated for machines that use about 35 gallons of water for a full wash tub. If you use that same soap in a washer that only uses 5 to 7 gallons of water, you are in affect putting a higher concentration of soap in your new washer. Originally, manufacturers of HE machines stated that you could use regular detergents as long as you cut back on the amount. They later retracted that statement, because regular detergents were damaging the HE washers. You should review your warranty closely. Most newer models now have a disclaimer that states if you use the wrong detergent in your new washer, the warranty becomes null and void. I hope this answers any questions you may have.
