What is HE detergents


Special low sud detergent designed for high efeciency HE machines.

Tip

Washing Machine Detergent


There are many questions about the type and the amount of washing machine detergent that is needed. Whether you are using a top loading washing machine or a front loading washing machine it does make a difference as to what and how much detergent to use.

Generally speaking a front loader washing machine will need to have less detergent then a top loader washing machine. Combine this with the water savings of the front load washing machine and you will get a substantial savings. However the front loading washer may be much more sensitive to many detergents. The recommendation of many manufacturers is to use HE detergent. This is designed to give less suds then many other detergents.

This is true but the use if the special detergent is not necessary. With the front loading washer you can decrease the amount of detergent used and still get great results. With warmer water you also can get better cleaning from less detergent. If you want you can also mix your fabric softener with the detergent and the fabric softener will keep the suds down for you.

If you have a top loading washer then you may want to experiment with using less detergent then you have thought would work in the past. By using warm of hot water you also can reduce the amount of detergent used and get great results.

Today’s high efficiency washers are very effective clothes washing machines. You can wash clothes with far less detergent in these efficient cleaning machines. Remember that the new machines are very sensitive to excessive suds and will even stop to allow the suds to go down before continuing on. More is not always better and with the washing machine of today, more may make it take a very long time to wash that load of clothing.

Washing machine making a knocking sound


On this washer the problem is the washer drum rear bearing is worn out, a common problem and often caused by not using the correct detergent for a front loader, detergent is very corrosive, so special types are used in front loads to prevent soap residue corroding the drum bearing. Once the bearing go out then the struts that cushion the drum during the spin quickly follow.

My bosch does not always completely wring the clothes out at the end of the cycle causing me to have to put the clothes through another wash. Has anyone had this problem?


...at the end of the wash, I then set the dial to DRAIN, then press start.  I wait for a special drain cycle to run.  Then, I set the dial to SPIN, and wait for a special spin cycle to run.  The clothes are much dryer and spun out after this process.  I'm not happy with the washer, it came with my new condo.  BUT, I'm trying to learn how to use it.....

Laundry detergent


Why do you want to use a special detergent??? Tide works fine! You just need to use about 1/4-1/2 what is used in the American machines. Now if you really want some exceptional laundry detergent like we use in Europe, buy Persil (google it).

My washer has a really bad smell like musty if i leave the doors closed or if I leave clothes in for a couple of hours is this a probem with them


hi there,

the musty smell is from the door boot or gasket. deposit from clothes and detergent get trapped in there and have nowhere else to go. i would recommend purchasing Washerfresh tables to get rid of the deposits. they are available all over.

I have a Maytag Neptune Front Load Washer. It spins the water out of my clothes good, but when the Washer stops and I take my clothes out, when I spin the inside by hand I can hear water between the drum...


water sound when spinning by hand totally normal, they use water as a counter balance, built into tub assy. as far as the mod/midew odors a few things things can help, first make sure youre using an HE detergent(HE detergent specially formulated for front loading machines) odors can be attributed to excessive amounts of detergent not completely broken down during the cycles, leaving the door ajar between cycles will also promote better air flow through the unit. and lastly using this product. new to the market made just for the front loading washers .
