You can use any soap powder for "front loading machines". They foam less & help clean better.

I have a maytage neptune washer mah8700a that displays "suds". It runs several additional rinse cycles before completing the wash. Have switched to tide and run much less soap. Tried an empty load on


Are you using detergent that is rated for HE (high-efficiency) washers? They are manufactured to require less per load and produce fewer suds. Conventional detergents in HE washers will result in over-sudsing.

How do we deodorize a smelly front load washer?


Buy the washing machine cleaning products near the laundry soaps. I believe Tide sells one.

Why am I getting more water in my front door seal than I used to?


Please reduce the water level if the clothes are sinking below and also if the drain valve is clogged or choked so that it does not drain to the end. Also check if the washer is placed tilted to the drain side to effect full drain of the water within.

I have a whirlpool duet washer/dryer. Large capacity i think. When I wash my husbands work clothes (dirt, grease, etc) I'm not sure if they are getting clean. They come out smelling just like they...


Hello
Could be the wash soap your using.You need to use high eff soap with this washer.
Tide makes a high eff soap,you will see it on the lable marked high eff.

Also check your drain line for any debris or blockage and remove.

The clothes smell moldy after washed in our Samsung frontloader. How can I get that moldy smell out?


1/4 cup powdered DISHWASHING soap and 1 cup bleach straight into the wash tub with a squeeze of lemon on a dirty rag HOT water wash. You may have to do this 2 to three times the first time.

Make sure your using HE laundry soaps.

There are at least 2 products out there for HE washer cleaning cycles. Tide and Affresh. It is in the laundry soap section of most supermarkets. You should use one of these type products at least one a month.

Thanks for choosing FixYa.

I make homemade liquid laundry saop and when I use


you NEED to buy real washing soap from a store. I recommend Tide because you may be mixing wrong ingredients or not adding something. If buying new/real soap doesnt work i would go to a sears or email sears at their website and tell them.

I HAVE FRONT LOAD LG WASHER - CLOTHES ARE SMELLING -- CAN WE USE 2 CUPS CLR & RUN WASHER WITH NO CLOTHES TO CLEAN WASHER DRUM & DRAIN HOSES. IS THERE A BETTER SOLUTION TO PREVENT THIS PROBLEM


Here is a response I recently gave to a person posting a similar problem. You do not state your model number, so: If you have a tub clean cycle, use that, if not, use the longest, hottest cycle with no clothes and a front load washer cleaner like Ahfresh, Washer Cleaner, SmellyWasher Cleaner, Tide front load washer cleaner, or Whilaway hot tub cleaner. Clean the tub gasket area by the door and remove the filter and clean it out also before you run the clean cycle. You may have to run the cycle with a cleaner twice to remove all the built up soap scum inside the washer. Now, after the washer is clean, USE ONLY ONE TO A MAXIMUM OF TWO TABLESPOONS OF HE LAUNDRY DETERGENT PER CYCLE !!!! (and no more than one teaspoon of fabric softener per cycle, if you use it)


Comments: Jul 21, 2009- Well, with that model I'd guess you are in the UK, and I don't have parts breakdown or service info on those models, but I'd run the front load washer cleaner through it. Not sure which ones are available over there. You could check out http://www.smellywasher.com/ for one possiblity. The big thing is that these machines use very little water, and many of the newer soaps are 2x or 3x concentrated, so you have to use very little soap. (much much less than the soap manufacturers suggest) in order to rinse all the soap residue out of the clothes and prevent it from builing up in your washer and causing odors. (oh, by the way, that one cleaner I listed as Washer Cleaner is actually " Washer Magic ") 73b1c2a.jpg fb3071a.jpg

Soap not being used


We learned from our new Duet that when washing with Tide soap powder, there is an adjustment inside the pull out drawer where the soap powder goes. You will see a grey plastic slider that goes to the right for liquid soap & to the left for powder soap.
Moving this slider to the left corrected this problem - not using all of the soap powder needed - for us.
Good luck !

Elastic eating front load washer


Check the inside drum vanes. Sometimes the vanes may crack and grab certain items.Next check the front of the drum and tub for any loose items like wires from bras or curtains sometimes these may get stuck in the drum or vane and cause this problem.Also check your soap make sure there is not alot of suds this is my number one problem with these machines.H.E. soap is best but watch liquid tide it's been sudsing alot.
