You need to use a detergent labeled "HE or he" .
The Why? "Regular or the older laundry detergent produces to much foam or suds for the front load machines and make it difficult for them to rinse the clothes of the residue."HE"detergents are lower sudsing and rinse cleaner.
One more thing, Even with the "HE" detergent DO NOT use to much. It is quite amazing how little you need so do not over do it or the machine will give you a high suds warning and you will need to re-rinse the load.

Proported to be the best HE detergents are Tide, Gain and Costco/Kirkland.

Why do Whirlpool Duet washers have such a problem with "over sudsing"? And how to prevent it?


The "oversudsing" problem is usually due to operator error. These new front loaders require the use of HE laundry detergents. These greatly reduce the sudsing issue. They also require VERY LITTLE detergent. For example, a normal-size laundry load only requires 1-2 TEASPOONS of HE laundry detergent. Most folks use much more than that, causing a possibility of oversudsing.

See this link for more info.

I have an ariston awd 121 front loader washer dryer. What kind of soap does it call for? Can it be the powder? Does it have to be liquid? Does it have to be a certain brand/type?


To my knowledge all front loading washers require low sudsing high efficiency (he) detergent and these only come in liquid. A powdered detergent could probably be used, but I'd try a 1/4 of the recommended amount for a normal load first. Also it is not recommended. Regular liquid detergent can also probably be used but i'd start with 1/2 the the amount for a normal load. If you don't use the recommended "he detergents" expect occasional oversudsing problems and possibly even early drain pump death. Hope this helps.

Message "suds" appeared on my Magtag laundry machine


There is a panel at the bottom front of your machine. Remove the 3 - 4 screws at the bottom of the panel. Inside the panel you will find Service Codes and other useful info. It's a good place to keep them so my advice is to put them back when done with them. It is indicating "suds" because you are either using too much detergent, wrong kind of detergent (make sure it's high-efficiency detergent) or you need to clean the catch basket on the drain pump.

I have a frontload he washer. My question is, will using a regular laundry detergent instead of he laundry detergent cause problems with the washer.


top load detergent will suds a lot and detergents made for from load washers wont suds very much at all, suds ina front loader will cause it to not spin or drain very well while i know it is more expensive you should always use detergents with the HE logo on the package

My GE Profile washing machine leaves soap suds in the bottom and on the clothes. I use Cheer liquid detergent. My husband says it is because of placing too heavy of items, such as towels, in the machine....


Use ONLY the recommended amount of detergent per the label on the detergent.
Pour detergent in the tub first then start the water,then add the laundry.
Do not overload the machine.
Use a bathroom scale to weigh 12-15 pounds of laundry and no more.
Big tubs invite more laundry.
Don't be fooled by a big tub.

Maytag a112 manual on how to add bleach AND fabric softener


Hi
Choosing Your Detergent, Bleach, and Fabric Softener..
Learn what the different items you need to wash your laundry.
Liquid Laundry Detergent and Fabric Softeners
When using liquid laundry detergent, you do not want to poor it directly on your laundry. The dyes in the liquid laundry soap could stain your clothing. You will want to start your washing machine and add the liquid laundry soap while the water is filling the washing machine.
You then can add your laundry once you have about and eighth of the washing machine tub filled. This will ensure your laundry doesn't become stained by the detergent. You should only add the amount that is poured into the cup to the fill line. When you add more, you could find yourself wading through mounds of bubbles overflowing from your washing machine.
The same reasoning applies to liquid fabric softeners. However, liquid fabric softeners are added to the washing cycle after the initial washing cycle is finished. You will want to add the fabric softener once the washing machine has filled with water and started to agitate. This keeps the fabric softener from touching the laundry and will work it into your clothing better.
Powdered Laundry Detergent
You will want to add one cup of loose laundry detergent to your washing machine in the same manner you would do the liquid laundry detergent. By doing this, the powdered laundry detergent will dissolve easier.
Bleach
When adding bleach to your laundry, there is a small triangular cup in the corner of your washing machine. By adding one cup of bleach into that dispenser, the bleach will be added to the laundry at a precise time during the wash cycle.
Setting Your Washing Machine
Most washing machines have three or four cycles. For instance, the Maytag Washer I have has four cycles, regular, permanent press, delicate, and soak.
Regular Washing Cycle
The regular cycle is used for the following types of clothes and other apparel:
• Jeans
• Towels
• Blankets
• Sheets
• Quilts
• Bedspreads
The soil types for this cycle are heavy, normal, and light. This means clothes or other articles that are lightly too heavily soiled should be washed in this cycle. This is due to the washing cycles can be set from a minimum of eight to fourteen minutes maximum. You can use all three of the water temperatures in this cycle.
1Permanent Press Washing Cycle
The permanent press washing cycle is used on the clothes that may or may not need to be ironed.
Such as:
• Blouses
• Shirts
• T-shirts
• Under garments. This would be your unmentionables and socks.
• Jackets
• Sheets
• Baby Clothing
The soil types for this wash cycle are normal and light. The washing times for the permanent press cycle are six minutes to ten minutes. You can use all three washing temperature modes for this cycle as well.
Delicate Washing Cycle
The delicate washing cycle is normally used for sweaters, cotton, silks, and other fabrics that need to be washed with care.
The soil types for the delicate cycle are normal and light. The washing times for the delicate cycle are four and six minutes. It is best to wash your delicate clothes in warm or cold water. Always wash clothing that is more than forty percent cotton in cold water to prevent shrinking.
Soak Washing Cycle
The soak cycle would be used for heavily soiled clothing, such as, football and baseball uniforms. This will help rid the uniforms of caked on mud and grass stains.
You can also use this cycle if you wish to only bleach your white's once a week or once a month with bleach.
Washing Your Laundry
Choose the cycle you need for your laundry. Add the laundry detergent, fabric softener, and bleach (remember regular liquid bleach is for white clothes only.) Start the washing machine and let fill to dissolve the dry detergent or to mix in the liquid detergent.
Now add your clothes to the washing machine. Clothes the lid so the washing machine will continue to wash your clothes.
If you are using a Laundromat, put your clothes in the washing area and shut the lid or door. Add your detergent and other cleaning items in the correct compartments. Put in the correct amount of change so the washer will start.

Laundry Detergent


this usually depends on the type and brand of detergent you use. for example if you use standard detergent and it takes 1 cup, then you use concentrated detergent and it takes 1/2 cup. you have to check the detergent container for proper amount to use. for most detergents it is around 3/4 to 1 cup of detergent.

Laundry detergent


Why do you want to use a special detergent??? Tide works fine! You just need to use about 1/4-1/2 what is used in the American machines. Now if you really want some exceptional laundry detergent like we use in Europe, buy Persil (google it).

LAUNDRY DETERGENT


Greetings MOMMA2,

Typically it is recommended to use only HE (High Efficiency) in your front loading units. The difference between HE soaps and normal detergents is that they are low sudsing soaps. HE Machines need low sudsing detergents and if regular detergent is used, the excess suds could lead to washer problems. Unfortunately just using a smaller amount of regular detergent does not fix the issue. Only the use of HE detergent assures the proper performance of your unit.

Due to this, it is NOT recommended using Dreft in HE machines.
One recommendation out there is to look for 2x Ultra Tide HE Free, which is made without dyes or perfumes.

Thank you,

Dorothy
