Question about Washing Machines
I have had my LG for 4.5 years now and have noticed that the whites (specifically my husband's undershirts) come out a nasty, dingy grey after a month or so of washing. I've tried all cycles, all temperatures, whiteners, bleach, soaking overnight first - everything I can think of doing.
Any suggestions? Is anyone else experiencing this problem?
I too have a front load washer. The problem is that it's not washing off all the soap suds. Try this. After a complete cycle, soak the clean clothes in a container w/ water and you'll see there's still soap suds coming out of the clothes. I tried running it several wash cycles and there was still soap left on the clothes. I think, it's mfg defect. We should all complain to the maker of the machines.

Having the same issues with dingy whites in a HE washer. Part of my problem is that we are on well water, and I know there are metals/minerals in the water that are part of the cause. Suggest a water filter that goes inline on the hot and cold supply lines to start with. Second, HE washers are notorious for not getting all of the soap from the loads. Most people use the HE liquid detergent and use the fill cap to dispense enough for (1) load. This is still too much for the HE units and builds up over time. Try cutting back on the amount of detergent used.

We bought a new house with a HE G.E. front load washer & dryer when we moved to AZ 2 years ago and I've been going INSANE trying to get my whites clean! I didn't know if it was the water here (very hard, but we have a high falutin' softener),the HE machines or what! My whites look HORRIBLE and don't smell so great either. My towels constantly have a musty smell and I have to set the machine on the "sanitize" setting, pre-wash, extra rinse and then sanitize them in the dryer as well in order to even get them borderline clean and decent smelling. After 2 years of searching the Internet and talking to people at Home Depot and Lowe's and trying everything they told me to do (to no avail), I've pretty much determined that HE front loaders just ****. I'm in misery not being able to have sparkly clean and yummy smelling laundry.
