Re: Ge front load washer
Because the frontloaders are set up differently and use less water. The regular soap sudds to much and can cause a number of problems in front loaders.
which can be but not limmited to burned out pump, motor etc.

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
The washer is detecting too much soap. Make sure that you are using HE (high efficiency) soap Do a clean washer or hot cycle once a month with bleach or white vinegar with no clothes in it. Your washer only uses half the water that a regular machine does. The HE is specially designed for front loaders and these types of machines
Yes you need to use HE detergent is this machine.1st reason is regular soap will suds to much and make the unit go into suds lock. 2nd HE soap will not damage the bearings and seals like regular soap could. 3rd He will clean better and you will be using less product...
your smell is comming from over soaping
a front load machine only needs 1 Tblsp of soap
any thing it builds up and rots thus the smell
get a crystal dish soap
1 cup run the machine empty a full cycle
now use trhe proper soap it will clean away
I queryed another site; justanswer.com with technician Larry, who provided the solution. Replace the door latch assenbly part # WH10X1006 $146.99 from GE. A local parts house had the identical under a Whirlpool # WP8182634 for 59.46. Install the new assemble and all is well.
If you have a water softener or very soft water, soap will suds up more than if your water is normal or hard, so you'll need to use less than recommended. Obviously soap breaks down the dirt, but the dirt also breaks down the soap, so if your clothes are not very dirty to start with, you'll need less soap than if they were more dirty. Soap can also be stored in laundry like towels and cleaning rags and when combined with the laundry soap will suds more. You can try raising the leveling legs in the front to tip the washer back. This will help the water drain back into the tub instead of pooling on the boot. You can also try using the 'extra rinse' option. Keep cutting back on how much soap you use until your laundry is not as clean as it should be. You might be surprised how little soap you can use!
Typically it is recommended to use only HE (High Efficiency) in your front loading units. The difference between HE soaps and normal detergents is that they are low sudsing soaps. HE Machines need low sudsing detergents and if regular detergent is used, the excess suds could lead to washer problems. Unfortunately just using a smaller amount of regular detergent does not fix the issue. Only the use of HE detergent assures the proper performance of your unit.
Due to this, it is NOT recommended using Dreft in HE machines.
One recommendation out there is to look for 2x Ultra Tide HE Free, which is made without dyes or perfumes.
