Clothes not white

My white clothes are looking very dinghy! I'm using Tide HE for front loading machines and bleach, but the clothes just do not look white anymore. Any suggestions?

Try washing out you unit, use www.affresh.com on the tub clean cycle, put the tablet right in the unit. Make sure you are also using the hot cycles on your whites. Cut back on the fabric softener as well.

Washer is not cleaning the clothes. Use Tide he with soft water, whites with bleach and clothes are dirty looking. White socks still dark shade on bottoms.Washer is a Neptune 5500


Probably not a fault of the washer. Where (city/state) are you buying your detergent? The reason I ask is that in the western US they have banned certain ingredients in detergents. The results aren't pretty. So far, they still sell the good stuff in Idaho if you have a way to get it.

Washer is turning my white clothes gray


Oil from transmission is a good possibility. The machine is still young but sounds like you do a lot with the washer. Better have a friend that don't mind looking it over, make sure that's oil and go from there!

Usage of HE detergents


The best he soap I have seen yet is all, he is high effieciency low suds soap. The rule of thumb for liquid he soap is 2 Tbl for every 1 Tbl of softener. Powder can be used but is not good on pumps and build up in tubs. If you have a water softener you can use 25% less soap. Still with powder you need about a 1/4 cup per load to equal a 2 Tbl liquid variety. Suds damage pump impellers, seals and hoses from expansion and that is it on the reason "why to use he".

Usage of HE detergents


ONLY USE HE DETERGENT, The repairman just left my house today, 24 August 2009, my washer had water spewing from the detergent tray, and soaked my floors:PROBLEM, my hoses were filled with NON-HE detergent, the repairman was really nice and told me that it could have automatically voided my warranty, but he wrote it up "differently" and smacked my hand. He showed me the hose and if was just clogged terribly, he ran the spin and rinse cyle and I thought the suds would never go away, but they finally did.

HE ALL THE WAY from now on

Bleach not always being emptied, bleach marks on clothes, bleach sometimes runs right out when you fill it.


The dispenser works on a siphon principal. If you over fill the cup it will start the siphon and empty before it should. If that's happening you're using way too much. You only need about a tablespoon of soap, softner and bleach for a full load.
