Wash down

Since down comforters are very light in weight, they confuse energy efficient front loader washing machines in how much water to add. Therefore, very little water is used, which results in a semi-damp comforter at the end of a wash. Pre-soaking the comforter beforehand would help, however, now the comforter weighs a ton, and the machine will vibrate like crazy during a spin cycle. It may be better to have the comforter dry cleaned.

How to wash down

Hello.. I do not recommend trying to wash a down comforter in this washer. It will not wash correctly and more than likely will not spin out. Your best bet is to take the item to a local laundromat and use a large 50lb washer if available.

How do I wash a down comforter on the LG steam washer?

I have done it before using the hand wash cycle. I don't know if that is the way you are supposed to do it, but it seemed to be ok and didn't ruin my down comforter.

Our Maytag Washing Machine Model number MFW9700SQ1 stinks!

This is a common problem, you can run a few cups of vinager or bleach in a empty load set to hot wash and this will help. To keep it from coming back when your done doing wash wipe the door gasket down with a rag dampened with bleach and never shut the door all the way. Good Luck

LG stinks too

It is not a poor design its the way we have gone re washing clothes

Old machines washed hotter and with more additives in the powders.

Try using a good strong mix of soda crystals in hot water , pour that into the wash before you switch it on and do a hot wash without any soap powder

Use old fasioned powders for a couple of weeks and do a hot wash once a month with the soda

The constant cool washes leave body fats from the clothing inside the machine as there is no real heat to melt them and no soda in the washing powder anymore to unstick them from the surfaces .

Washing a down comforter

I took mine to the laundromat and used their largest machine. It came out great. I dried it for an hour in their supersized dryer and then finished the job at home. It cost $7 (lots of quarters) vs. $30 for dry cleaning, which is not recommended for down because it strips the down of natural oils, I think. The label says do not dry clean on mine.
