I have a frontload he washer. My question is, will using a regular laundry detergent instead of he laundry detergent cause problems with the washer.


top load detergent will suds a lot and detergents made for from load washers wont suds very much at all, suds ina front loader will cause it to not spin or drain very well while i know it is more expensive you should always use detergents with the HE logo on the package

Tip

Bad smell inside washer


Every Frontload washer on the market today has a smell issue or potential to have one quite easily.In fact the smell problem has been there since these Frontload washers were introduced. The real kick is instead of recognizing the problem and addressing it some of the manufacturers have even started selling consumers cleaners to help reduce the smell problem. Yes they are profiting on the sale of cleaners, that deal with an issue they created. The closest they have come to addressing the issue is adding an extra cycle to your washer strictly for cleaning the washer. Basically you clean your washer so it can clean your clothes. Why didn't the salesperson tell you about the issue? Maybe because it was his first day, but probably because he was trying to sell you a washer.
Now all this said, is there anything you can do? First and foremost make absolutely sure you are using a HE (high efficency) detergent. Frontload washers use a very little amount of water and the HE detergent is not only concentrated so you use less but it is not as thick as regular detergent so it has a better chance of washing away clean. Concentrated detergent is NOT HE detergent and still may pose an issue if used. If you Don't know what HE detergent is, call the manufacturer, your grocery store, or the sales guy who sold it to you. On average you will never need more than 2 tablespoons per load. DO NOT go by the cap fill lines ever. These lines make the assumption everyone has the same water, load the washers the same and have equally dirty clothes. More is NEVER better in a Frontload. Bottom line is you want to make sure all the detergent is getting cleaned out of the washer after each use. If any remains it will start to deteriorate and deteriorating detergent can smell.
Secondly when you are done using the unit for the day, use a towel to dry off the rubber door boot and the inner door. Don't be afraid to pull the boot some to get as much of the water off as possible. The rubber is pretty thick and sturdy. And if at all possible leave the door open as long as possible to help what water is left inside the washer to evaporate. The washers have vents on the back but they do not work as well as venting on a top-load washer. Basically the water drops will collect in the bottom after usage and if the door gets closed that water can get stagnant, grow bacteria and even mold. These will also cause lovely fragrances to tickle your nose.
Finally if you want to try some of the washer machine cleaners they may help some to clean away any buildup that may be already inside the washer. However it seems silly to pay so much for a washer and have to continually maintain a problem that is caused by the washer with cleaners produced by the washers manufacturer. If you try and cut back as much as possible (2 tablespoons) on detergent, and allow as much water to be cleaned out or evaporate the smells will resolve themselves. A good test to use if you think you have a buildup is fill the washer on it hottest cycle with the drum empty. Let it wash around for a few minutes and just look inside and see if you see suds. Suds in the washer tells you soap is still in the tub somewhere.

Too many suds even after running the rinse cycle while empty of any clothes


Some of these new top loaders require Frontloader detergent.I know F&P Aquasmart does.if you are useing Topload detergent it maybe over sudsing.Even though its a top loader some of them are ment to use Front load detergent..Fill with water & flush several times.check your book for type of detergent to use or ring & ask F&P.

Frontloader shows SUD but no visible suds ....then machine stops working. also shows F34 numbers. Have tried resetting by un-plugging . then works fine for a few times then shows SUD again and we have to...


You may have a clogged drain filter.
Remove the bottom front panel to access the filter. Unscrew the filter,clean and replace the filter. Also,run 2-3 wash cycles with no detergent at all.
When using HE detergent,use the exact specified amount. With front load machines more is not better.

Hello. My frontload LG Washer started leaking


I have the same problem I think. During the wash cycle, water sometimes starts spraying/leaking from the detergent dispenser drawer. This orignally only happened during a 'NORMAL' wash and when I ran a 'SPEED WASH' it was ok. Now all of a sudden it's doing it during the 'SPEED WASH' also. I though it might be the water pressure so I turned down the flow going to the washer but that doesn't seem to help. If I knew how the detergent system worked maybe it would be easier to solve this problem.

SUD is flashing and has been since yesterday. It started during the wash cycle, and now I can't get it to finish the load.


Check to make sure your pump is clear of any obstructions. Frontloaders commonly go into
