Whites don't get clean in front loading washing machine

I can't get my whites to come out as clean as in my ancient top-loader.  Socks and white underwear are grey even though I use hot water, bleach AND presoak and extra rinse (cycle takes almost 2 hours!!!)  Don't know how to get things white!!!  HELP!!

I have the same problem and I'm really aggrevated that I paid alot of $$ for something that doesn't do the job it was purchased to do! I'm going to look at replacing it with a top loader. I think LG should take responsibility for selling a bad product.

Can the rubber gasket between the drum and door be removed for cleaning...it tends to become very moldy.


it can be but don't reccomend it unless you have done it before such as a repairman.  i have found that cleaning it with bleach usually does the job.  you may want to also run about 1 cup of white vinegar through a hot water load by itself and that should alleviate any odors for the most part.  you can also by a product called washer magic at most stores.  made specifically for cleaning front loaders.

Grey spots on our white clothes after wash


do you use affresh to clean your front loader? deposits of soap and other such things can be stuck around the inside tub of your washer. try this porduct out it works great on all front loaders use hot water with the affresh pellet with no clothes and run the machine through a cycle this also helps with any stagnant water smells also have you cleaned out your pump lately. * note remeber to put the pellet on the inside of the machine not in the soap dispenser

Front-load washer doesn't clean!


I don't know anyone who thinks the front loader is better except for stacking things on top of...

Certainly the performance of the modern water-saving front-loader is questionable when compared to earlier models - which is why I think a wash takes much longer these days with a modern machine, I think it has to in order to be effective. My friend's new front loader can take a couple of hours to complete a programme and it is only a washer and not a waser/drier.

The older washers used to take everything that could be pushed inside and the laundry would emerge smiling. These days overloading is a complete taboo and should be weighed to ensure nothing is strained.

Your washer might have a fault but in the final analysis you made a contract with a retailer to, in return for a consideration, supply you with a washer to clean your laundry. The supplied washer doesn't clean the laundry in spite of your best efforts and that means the retailer has broken the contract. It is up to him to sort matters out to your satisfaction.

STAINED WHITE T-SHIRTS, DULL LINEN


Hi! I am a habitual cleaning type person and clean clothes rate at the top of my list. I have 4 recommendations that SHOULD help tremendously for ALL your clothes but is most evident in your whites.
#1 is the right washer. I NEVER knew how clean my clothes could come out till the past year and a half I finally bought front loader. And let me tell you was I ever surprised at how clean and soft they were, LIKE NEW! Those old top loaders,even the new ones are no comparison to the front loading systems. BUT expensive if you have to go out and buy a new one BUT also a GOOD excuse to tell hubby you need a new one...LOL
#2 Always use liquid detergents, they seem to wash and rinse out so much better than any powder
#3 A HUGE helping hand I discovered some 30 years back that I STILL have not found that can be beat is "BIZ" bleach. It's miraculous! It's a great pre-treater to soak badly needed whites in and helps to retain bright colors if used in non-white laundry. Actually I even use it in a powder form. AFter loading all my clothes in m y front loader I scoop out a cup and actually scatter it OVER my laundry. Then add the liquid detergent (Tide or the like, I get mine at Costco or Sam's club depending on what region you live in) and wash like normal.
#4 Last but not least, for whites and ALL colors I have found nothing better than DAWN dish washing liquid. Immediately pre-treat ANY stain no matter the size with Dawn and just fold it over and toss it in the laundry. Best if washed within the same week at the latest.
GOOD LUCK to all you Domestic Goddesses! ;-)~

Usage of HE detergents


The best he soap I have seen yet is all, he is high effieciency low suds soap. The rule of thumb for liquid he soap is 2 Tbl for every 1 Tbl of softener. Powder can be used but is not good on pumps and build up in tubs. If you have a water softener you can use 25% less soap. Still with powder you need about a 1/4 cup per load to equal a 2 Tbl liquid variety. Suds damage pump impellers, seals and hoses from expansion and that is it on the reason "why to use he".

Usage of HE detergents


ONLY USE HE DETERGENT, The repairman just left my house today, 24 August 2009, my washer had water spewing from the detergent tray, and soaked my floors:PROBLEM, my hoses were filled with NON-HE detergent, the repairman was really nice and told me that it could have automatically voided my warranty, but he wrote it up "differently" and smacked my hand. He showed me the hose and if was just clogged terribly, he ran the spin and rinse cyle and I thought the suds would never go away, but they finally did.

HE ALL THE WAY from now on
