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!!

SOURCE: suds residue left on clothes just washed

ck drain hose end of drain hose should be at least 36 ins from floor also be sure drain hose fits loosely in drain water may be siphoning out resulting low water level to wash/rinse ..also recommend using liquid detergent dry doesn't dissolve good in cold water and even though it may be recommended for front load the lower water levels used may not be enough to dissolve it properly

After adding the persil powder in the machine I cannot see any foam while the machine is washing plus I don't smell the soap on the clothes as if they are not clean


If you are using the powder or the liquid then you can see if this is used and the condition of the clothes must confirm., If not increase the quantity on the tray.

The whashing comes out with white powder like stuff. Can I clean the drum and if so how ? is it flint that gathers some where?


Hello Sir Tommis,

I understand that you are having a problem with your washing machine. When you wash clothes they come out with a white powder like substance on them. This white powder substance is the powder laundry soap that you are using.

This is generally caused by adding to much soap and clothes to the washing machine. The soap is not getting dissolved and the clothes do not have enough room to agitate in the machine. Try to put 3/4 of the amount of clothes in the washer with the same amount of soap and see if the clothes come out with the same powder like substance on them.

The clothes that currently have the soap on them will have to be hand washed with a scrub brush in oder to get the material off of them as running them though the washer will not remove the soaked in soap.

Thank you for choosing FixYa.com

I bought the Samsung 8 kg Top Loader (Model: WA80V3WIP) a few weeks ago. I only use cold water and bought the yellow packet of Sunlight washing powder, which specifically says on the packet that it works...


As with any top-loader, the soap drawer will deposit the entire soap load on one spot within the first few seconds of water fill. When the water starts running through the soap drawer, the brakes on the drum are released, so you can manually rotate the drum to disperse the soap over the load surface, thus eliminating the concentrated spots. Also, you may save the duvet, as the white marks are most probably dried soap powder which can be removed with a damp cloth wiped over the area.

The washer smells,had the problem before the repairman took it apart, I cleaned the white plastis rim on the tub,solved the problem soap buildup we need to know how to take it apart to clean it


Dont !! Try doing a hot wash with a good dose of Washing Soda Crystals and no clothes (An empty washer not a visit to a nudist colony). Also go back to Old Fashioned Soap Powder for a while. Cold wash powders and low teperature washes do not dissolve the fats which are washed out of the clothes and they build up causing the smells. Old fashioned powders had some bleach and soda in them which kept the problem at bay

Soap in LG


Hello, to answer your question, it depends. Are you using liquid detergent or powder? How dirty are your clothes? How bulky are your clothes?
For average size clothes and normal dirt I use about a cup of powder. If the clothes are dirty and/or bulky I just hit the "water plus" button. These machines are so efficient you don't want too much soap, just add water.
If your using liquid make sure it's approved for front load washers and use it sparingly. The most I have put in is about half up on the dispensing cup in the washer. Remember to remove this if your using powder. Any more questions just ask. Good luck.

Clothes smell after wash cleaned filter still clothes smell


set the machine off on a 95c wash with no clothes or soap in, the most likely cause is a build up of soap scum on the inside of the drum, also try to alternate between washing powders and liquid tablets.

hope this helps

LINT STICKS TO MY CLOTHES IN WASHER


linting is caused by a few things
firstly what sort of soap poweder do you use
i recomend good quality powder
do not wash clothes too long as what you are doing is rubbing all the fibres out of them
good quality washing powder only last about 6 minets in water and after that it looses its qualiteseg
the PH changes in the water
you may be using too little soap powder and this also depends on water quality eg too hard or soft water
is the water levels set corectly
do not mix washing
eg towels with jeans as the lint will come off onto jeans
try using delicate wash on different fabric as the adgitation is different on different cycles
try using warm wash and not cold machine is probable ok but wah times are important
good luck
