No, but steam will degrade some connections over time.
If you have an intermittent fault, unplug the main control board and re-connect to remove corrosion if you are competent at this sort of repair.

How do you fix too much soap in washing machine?


You are using the wrong detergent for your wash. You probably have a "e" type machine and you probably are using the regular detergent. Some machine are not using too much waster so they have to use special detergent for those machine.Look for the "e" next time you buy .

Will using a non HE detergent ruin the drum bearings and/or cause corrosion?? my repairman said that my regular detergent (free and clear) ruined my machine (kenmore model 417....)


High Efficiency detergents are supposed to have a different formulation in order to reduce foaming. Over foaming in a front-loader will reduce the cleaning action (flop & drop) within the drum, and reduce the rinse efficiency.

SO usage of non HE can reduce the efficiency and the bearing are tend to be worn out...

REGULAR DETERGENT ON HE PLUS


Regular detergent causes the washer to make too much suds. Use HE detergent unless you want to fry your washer. You can use regular detergent as long as you use a small amount.

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.
