Question about Frigidaire ATF6000ES Front Load Washer

Can you use Oxyclean along with detergent in front loaders?

Saw an advertisement for Oxyclean's use in front loading washing machines.
Mix powder and liquid detergent? Put it in the dispenser drawer or right in the tub? Has anyone else seen this ad or tried it? I have to wash VERY dirty and oily clothes.
Thanks

I use 2 Tablespoons of Liquid Detergent and a 1/2 to 3/4 scoop of Oxyclean and I have had good results in my Front Loader. Clothes come out very clean and there is no residue on the inside of my washer.

I have not seen the ads but my wife uses Oxyclean in both of our front load machines with no issues. It seems to work great.

What is the recommended washing powder


any brand that states specifically for front loader machines. From experience I would prefer to use liquid detergents specific for front loaders as there are less harmful products that rot and corrode parts in the machine.

Inside the dispenser drawer, at the bottom there is a tab that you can push down to remove the dispenser drawer. Remove the drawer and check if the dispenser holes are clogged, this is a common cause.

I have a Samsung Silver Care front loader washing machine. When I turn it on water comes out the detergent dispenser drawer and a little oozes out of the main front door. Any ideas? Thanks, Kelly


Remove the dispensing tray (look for an under side spring clip or release) and check the fluid exit point--the machine washes the detergent into the drum along with other washing compounds. You may be better off using a liquid detergent rather than a powder. This may also fix the main door leakage too. Hope this helps!

When in wash it dosent remove all soap powder from clothes


I don't know how you are administering the soap powder to the machine..but for one, its recommended that you use detergent thats made exclusively for the front loader washer, usually says "he" on the front of the LIQUID detergent, they recommend that you use liquid detergent on top of that, BUT if you have to use regular powder detergent it must be put inside the tub and NOT the pull out detergent drawer. The reason why they want you to use liquid is because the powder detergent is not concentrated and when you use it, it lathers up alot and its harder for the front loader machine to clean out the clothes and I was told that they (sales agents) have heard of soap suds and bubble floods coming from the machine due to either using the powder detergent or using too much. Hope that this helps!!

Have a lg tromm front loader and am wondering if it is ok to run regular detergent instead of the hd stuff. C.


Not recommended. When buying the correct product you should also find the front loader much more economical on washing powder than a top loader.

Do I put powder detergent in the same place I put Liquid detergent?


Detergent compartment
Add liquid or powdered detergent to this compartment for your
wash cycle. The detergent separator must always be in place,
either in the front or back position.
 Do not fill beyond the “MAX” level.
 Liquid or powdered color-safe bleach may be added to the
Main Wash compartment along with the same type of
detergent, liquid or powdered.
 Liquid detergent: Put the SEPARATOR in the front position,
between the guides, as shown as shown by Position 1 below.
There will be no gap between the bottom of the wash cycle detergent
compartment and the bottom of the separator.

Powdered detergent:
Put the SEPARATOR in the back
position, behind the guides as shown by Position 1 below. There will be
a gap between the bottom of the wash cycle detergent
compartment and the bottom of the separator.

NOTE: The separator will be in the POWDER (back) position
when shipped from the factory.

Washing machine doesn't comsume the washing powder.


use liquid detergent, less clothes, larger load size, or put the powder in first and let water fill up. u may want to mix up with your hand or like i do give a twist to the washing device to mix up better. but i did find this the problem when i used generic detergent for they go a little cheaper on the ingrediants try brand name like tide, or gain. cheaper not always better but i find these two work well for me and have a lasting scent.

Is powder or liqued detergent better for front


They are trying to make money off you!!!!!!! LIQUID!!!! Dont ever!!! use powder soap in your front loader. Powder soap doesnt dissolve all the way and then gets into the bearings of the washer and eats them away! This caused about a 450 dollar repair for your repairman. Never use powder soap.

Allergic to detergent for front loaders


I have always used regular Tide powder in mine and my kids use Tide liquid in it. You just need to use about half as much. My man is a motor head so he gets DIRTY and I have three teens so I wash a lot of very dirty clothes. My clothes get very clean and I have never purchased the "special" Detergent.

I have had my Duet for three years.
