Do you not know that unbalanced dry clotrhes become super unbalanced wet clothes! If you put too little clothing in the front loader, the weight will be in one place on the high speed turning drum. If you put in too much, the load will shift to a few locations but still be out of balance. Rather than "dance" the Chubby Checker way with your machine, try stopping it when it does "the dance" and redistribute the clothing around the drum!
moldy odor in this front loading washer (and most other front loaders, too) and the clothes washed in ti is due to the
way the washer are built. There's almost always some water that doesn't get pumped out all the way. The water along with detergent residue left inside the machine is the perfect combination for mold growth between wash days.
First stop feeding mold. Stop using "regular" detergent in it. By regular, I mean anything that isn't an "HE" type. You've got to use the types
designated as "HE" (High Efficiency). They suds up a lot less, and due
to the significantly less water our front loaders use, actually leave
less soap residue (that is a large source of the mold and musty smell)
behind the tub of front loading machines. I use only about 1/2 of the HE
detergent recommended on the bottle and get very good results.
Second, kill off existing mold. Run a clothes-less wash consisting of bleach and HOT water only 1 X
week. This should be the last load run whenever the machine will be idle for a couple days or more.
Third, always wipe dry the
inside of the tub, detergent & softener dispensing areas, the gasket
around the door - particularly the bottom. Again, this is best after
the last load is complete.
Fourth, leave all doors open or slightly
ajar to allow for air circulation.
Some products that are designed to rid odors from your washer.
Finally, to remove the existing mold
smell from the machine, one or two initial treatments (followed by
regular treatments) of a product called "Affresh" (or equal) as
directed. Some people have good luck with vinegar, too.
I hope this helps and good luck! Please rate my reply - thank you.
If you have washed some NEW blue denims, some of the dye will get on everything. Blue denims are often a pain, and if you wear them before washing them they will get that same blue dye all over you. It didn't hurt your washer, just run a couple loads through and add a little bleach to the whites. Note that if you put bleach in with OTHER colors, they will fade. The trick is, never wash ANYTHING with blue denims, especially when they're new.
Washers are more advanced and stylish than ever before. When you're buying a washer, look for features that make washing easier and more efficient, less costly, and kinder to fabrics. Thanks to advances in technology, it's all possible - and our washer buying guide shows you how.
Washer Types Feature options, capacity, energy use and style are all factors to consider when deciding between a front- or top-loading washer.oth top-loading and front-loading washing machines will do a good job of cleaning your clothes. The most significant differences between these types of washers are capacity, energy efficiency, water use, feature options, and style.
Traditional top-loading washing machines are available in a wide assortment of models, price ranges and styles. The most basic top-loading washers perform very well and are generally a good value for a no-frills, clean wash. Other top-loaders offer more cycle and temperature selections, spin speeds, and fabric care extras as they increase in price. Overall, top-loading washers are generally less expensive to purchase than front-loading machines, but are slightly more costly to run because they use more water and electricity.
Most top-loaders fill the tub with enough water to cover the clothing, then agitate them to get the clothing clean. Some manufacturers now offer high-efficiency top-loading washers using a number of different technologies. One such technology is the Whirlpool® Calypso® wash plate. Instead of agitating fabrics to get them clean, the wash plate moves them through a shower of concentrated detergent and water. The action is gentler on fabrics; it's designed to provide better cleaning with far less stress to garment fibers. And with the agitator out of the way, the washer has more room to clean bulky items such as comforters and rugs.
Standard capacity for a top-loading washing machine is 12 to 16 pounds per load. The Calypso wash plate model can hold up to 18 pounds of laundry (think the equivalent of 16 pairs of jeans).
Here is a link to some Whirlpool washers for you to look over.
Same problem with my front loader. You have to make sure to clean out the rubber trap in the front regularly. it seems to collect alot of hair and plug the drain hole. also it helps to leave the door open when you finish washing to further reduce the stagnant water smell. Use fabric softener for the towels!
