Any detergent that says "Automatic" should be OK.

Pretty much any softener should be OK.

You will usually find a drawer on the front panel of the machine, just under the top edge, typically on the left hand side.

If you open this drawer, you will find it is divided into a number of (typically four) compartments. There will be one or two large compartments for detergent and one or two smaller, usually partially covered, compartments for bleach and conditioner.

You need to identify which is which.

Starting with detergent: If you only have one large compartment, that's the one to use.

If there are two, you need to know which is for main wash and which is for prewash. If one is bigger than the other, use the big one for your main detergent load. If using a cycle that does a prewash, put detergent in the smaller compartment as well.

If they're both the same, you need to experiment: Select a wash cycle that doesn't do prewash. Turn the machine on, and when it starts to fill, cautiously open the drawer a little and look to see which compartment has the fill water running through it. That's the one you need to use for your main wash detergent (use the other as well on cycles that do a prewash).

Now look at the smaller compartments. Hopefully, they'll be marked with a triangle for the bleach and something looking like a flower for the conditioner. If not, put a little bit of conditioner into the bottom of each, set the machine to "final rinse" and see which compartment it takes the conditioner from. That's the one you use for conditioner in future. (Don't worry about the little bit of conditioner you've put in the bleach tray - this will rinse out the first time you run a full cycle).

When putting in bleach or conditioner, it's important not to overfill. If there's a fill level line, don't go above that. If the compartment is covered with a grating then fill no further than the grating. Overfilling will cause the product to go into the machine too early in the cycle.

(Finally, strongly advise against posting your phone number or personal email address on public internet sites - it attracts all sorts of undesirable attention)

Good luck - and enjoy your new machine.

Where to despense softner?


When you open the detergent drawer, there are three troughs in the drawer. The trough on the left is for pre-wash, the trough in the middle is for detergent, and the trough on the right is for softner. This is described on page 11 of the users manual.

I would like to know what laundry detergent and softner to use in my front load, and the right amount to use. I buy the H E products and some of them are really sudsy in the wash sink and I have this awful...


You should use HE detergent following the directions for that detergent. You can add liquid fabric softener. Make sure to fill the appropriate compartment to the Min line if you are doing a small load.

I've never used a washer that drained into a sink (always had a stand pipe). However, I suspect that the gummy residue is the excess softener that was removed in the rinse cycle. Try rinsing the sink with hot water after a laundry. This is part of the procedure to clean the inserts and detergent/bleach/fabric softener drawer when you get a build up in the drawer. In the future, use less fabric softener in the washer. Alternately, skip the fabric softener in the washer but use a dryer fabric softener.

The manuals for most Frigidaire appliances are available from http://www.frigidaire.com/manuals .
The direct link for the manual (in English) for the is: http://manuals.frigidaire.com/prodinfo_pdf/Webster/134609000een.pdf .

I hope this helps.

The fabric softner compartment of my whirlpool duet washer is completely full of water


Mine is doing the same. For over 2 months now I've been adding fabric softner to the detergent compartment but I broke down and called a repairman to come tomorrow... at a ridiculous repair rate. My washer is less than 3 years old and this will be the 3rd major problem that needed to be fixed. I've seen a lot of people post the same problem - some say all 3 compartments won't drain.

How do i get all the dog hair out of maytag front loaders after i wash my clothers theres still dog hair on them & yes i clean the filters


Make sure you are using the proper amount of "HE" detergant based on our water hardness. Soil and pet hair are suspended in the wash engymes during the was cycle to be taken away during the drain cycle. Use of a non "HE" detergant will produce an over sudsing condition and soil will be suspended in the suds and redeposit on the garments and inner basket during the drain cycle. Using a lesser amount of non "HE" detergant will provide an insufficient amount of wash engymes and also give you the condition you are experiencing. Try using a combination of a granular "HE detergant added directly to the load of clothes along with a liquid fabric softner added to the dispensor. This should help you out. Of course shaking out the garments outdoors that have heavy deposits of pet hair would help as well.

When to add softner during wash


Hello, the softener is added during rinse circle but bleach needs to be added at the beginning. First add the detergent, then let the water get it nice and sudsy, then add the bleach then the cloths. It is when you get to the rinse circle that you add the softener.

Thanks

SPOT COULD BE DETERGENT OR SOFTNER IF YOU USE IT- TRY DISOLVING DETERGENT IN WARM WATER BEFORE ADDING IT TO THE MACHINE- THIS WILL TELL YOU IF IT IS THE FAULT.
