You MUST use "HE" (High Efficiency-Low Suds) type detergent--but to use the correct amount. Nearly all brands of "HE" detergent have incorrect instructions. The correct amount is as follows:
HE: (2) Tablespoons Per Wash load
HE 2X (double concentrated) : (1) Tablespoon
HE 3X (triple concentrated): (1) Teaspoon
This reduces/prevents:
1) Musty Odor
2) "LE" Error/Interrupted Cycle
3) L-O-N-G Cycle Times (longer than time displayed)
4) Insufficient Cleaning Results
5) Small Water Leaks from the air vent behind the washer or at the
front door gasket
6) Damaged Sensors
7) Reduced Spin Speeds (laundry not spin-dried effectively)
These washers MUST have the right amount of the right stuff or they simply will give you lots of grief. The program can sense suds. It cannot pronounce your wash clean if it thinks their are suds. So it try's to fix the problem and ends up overworking itself.

Why does my LG top load washer have mold in the detergent area?


This is a common issue, they make cleaning products to remove this gunk. Hot water and bleach will kill it as well.

Gltf1670as1can you use powder detergent in ?


Good Morning Friend,

I understand that you want to know if you can use powder detergent in your Frigidaire washer, model# GLTF1670AS1. Below are the advised steps for the detergent dispenser of your washer.

• Add measured detergent to the detergent compartment of the dispenser drawer.
• Detergent is flushed from the dispenser at the beginning of the cycle. Either powdered or liquid detergent can be used. Note: Liquid detergent will drain into the washer drum as it is added.
• Low sudsing detergent is recommended for this washer. Use the manufacturer's recommended amount.
• If low sudsing detergent is not available, a reduced amount of regular detergent may be used. Because
reducing the amount of detergent may reduce cleaning, it is important to pretreat stains, sort carefully by color and soil level, and avoid overloading.
• Detergent usage may need to be adjusted for water temperature, water hardness, size and soil level of the load.
• For best results, avoid oversudsing.


Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

When in wash it dosent remove all soap powder from clothes


I don't know how you are administering the soap powder to the machine..but for one, its recommended that you use detergent thats made exclusively for the front loader washer, usually says "he" on the front of the LIQUID detergent, they recommend that you use liquid detergent on top of that, BUT if you have to use regular powder detergent it must be put inside the tub and NOT the pull out detergent drawer. The reason why they want you to use liquid is because the powder detergent is not concentrated and when you use it, it lathers up alot and its harder for the front loader machine to clean out the clothes and I was told that they (sales agents) have heard of soap suds and bubble floods coming from the machine due to either using the powder detergent or using too much. Hope that this helps!!

Detergent will not dispense


generaly the detergent tray has a "gate" that needs to be moved to the top position for powder. (up for powder, down for liquid). This is the generic answer. if you verify the model number or list the model of your unit I will attempt to locate a users guide for you.

Please take the time to give this solution a fix ya rating

Is powder or liqued detergent better for front


They are trying to make money off you!!!!!!! LIQUID!!!! Dont ever!!! use powder soap in your front loader. Powder soap doesnt dissolve all the way and then gets into the bearings of the washer and eats them away! This caused about a 450 dollar repair for your repairman. Never use powder soap.

SOAP DISPENSING


The soap dispenser is intended for both liquid and powder detergents. If you have a problem with mildew, then you may need to clean it occasionally with bleach water.

Powder vs. liquid laundry detergent


I was searching the net looking for the same answer - have just bought an LG front loader but wasn't certain I should be using liquid detergent - my manual refers to powder without telling you specifically to use it only. Look at the answers to the question after yours on the Fixya website "LG washer has awful mildew odour" or something similar. Solution 3 by Tresilla convinced me I should use powder! Also, the salesman who sold me the machine recommended powder because, quote, " gentler on clothes and more efficient ..." - he didn't mention the possibility of a later mildew odour which is apparently generic to front loaders!
