You add bleach to the detergent and wash the garments in both. So start filling the washing machine drum, add the perscribed amount of detergent, then add the bleach, let the 2 agitate together and then add the garments. This dilutes both so that they don't damage your clothing. usually it tells you on the package how much to use, however usually a "Cap Full" will do...

How do you use the tub clean?


Read these instructions carefully before
beginning the TUB CLEAN cycle.
1
Open the door and remove any clothing in
the wash drum.
2
Open the dispenser drawer.
3
Add liquid chlorine bleach or tub cleaner.
Some powder or tablet tub cleaners which
are manufactured for this purpose can be
used.
(NOTE : Do not add any laundry detergent
or fabric softener to the drawer when using
TUB CLEAN.)
- If using liquid chlorine bleach
Add liquid chlorine bleach to the bleach
compartment of the drawer.
(NOTE : Do not exceed the maximum
fill line and do not pour undiluted liquid
bleach directly into the wash drum.)
- If using powder cleaner
Remove the liquid detergent cup and
add powder cleaner to the main wash
compartment of the drawer.
- If using tablet cleaner
Add tablet cleaner to the wash drum
directly.
(NOTE : Do not add tablet cleaner to the
drawer.)
4
Close the drawer and washer door.
5
Select TUB CLEAN and press START.
NOTE : It is recommended that TUB CLEAN
should be repeated monthly.
If mildew or musty smell already exists, run TUB
CLEAN for 3 consecutive weeks.
After TUB CLEAN is complete or when the washer
is not used, leave the washer door open for better
ventilation and drying inside of the washer

I do most of my shopping online and liquid bleach sometimes doesn't ship without breaking. Is it OK to use dry or powder bleach? I have the whirlpool cabrio top load large capacity model.


It should be okay to use dry bleach, if you follow the instructions on the bleach. Some bleaches require dissolving in water first, others can be used dry.

Bleach is eating holes in my clothes. With top loaders, the bleach is mixed in with water before clothes are added.. seems that with front loaders the bleach is just being deposited directly onto clothes?


Add your bleach with less potency but make sure you are putting it where it is suppose to go and when you are supose to add it , it makes a difference.

I just need someone to explain to me if I should add clorox bleach. and clorox ll in the same area, but not at the same time. I don't understand if you should add them into the same area it seems as...


When you add bleach to the beach dispenser, it goes directly into the water in the outer tub, where it dilutes, before coming into contact with your clothing. I'm no chemist, but I think the difference between the regular bleach and the "color safe" bleach is either a chemical additive, or just a special dilution.

If it's the latter, mixing the two will add too much chlorine, and "bleach stain" your colors. Follw the directions on the bottles, and also the user guide that came with your machine, if you still have it.

Bleaching subsequent loads


I'm no repairman but here's a coupla thots:
1 - try running an empty load after bleaching. Save money and just use cold water. First add a few cups of water to the bleach dispenser to help flush out the old bleach that might remain, then run it.
2 - lemon juice is naturally acidic and should neutralize the bleach. You could add some to the bleach dispenser and do the above. Maybe mix a half-cup with a few cups of water and put in the dispenser, then run it. (Lemon juice [or vinegar] is good thing if you get bleach on your hands, too.)
OF COURSE -- Test to see if this works with a couple colored rags before running any good clothes through.
3 - How about using oxygen bleach alternatives (color-safe bleach) instead of regular bleach?
I suppose there could be a problem with your dispenser, idk....

Bleach is spilling directly on to clothes


I have the same problem and here is the reason and the solution. When you add bleach it sits in the dispenser until the rinse cycle. During the rinse cycle the machine pours a lot of water through the dispenser. The bleach is diluted and washed out with all this water into the tumbler and you clothes are rinsed with bleach. Sometimes when this rinse happens, the water does not completely drain from the bleach dispense. It sits in there. If this happens, the next time you add bleach, there is too much liquid in the dispenser and it leaks out onto your clothes.
Solution: Before you add bleach, take the whole dispenser out and see if there is a lot of water still standing in the bleach dispenser section. If there is a lot of water, spill it out into a sink. Then fill the dispenser with your bleach and it will all work out the way it should. I was having your same problem until I discovered this. I have never had the problem since.
