Question about Electrolux Washing Machines

2 Answers

My Electrolux washing machine recently started having CRAZY amount of suds despite using our regular tide HE pods (only 1)

It gets worse when you wash towels, bedsheets, blankets. We are not overfilling, even 1 twin blanket can cause the suds to ooze right through the front door! I do not use any softeners, etc just plain vinegar in the softener bin.

There can only be three reasons

Someone is adding washing up liquid to the drum for 'fun'.
The clothes have some type of prewash, or too much soap from use in the bathroom but that doesn't explain sheets and blankets unless you have a teenager in an adolescent experimental phase. :>D
The Tide pods are faulty.

Hi,

your exit valves might be a bit clogged. Please add 7 to 10 inches of tooth paste into a short wash and allow your machines pipes to be cleaned of it's potential debris that are clogging it's exit pipes. After this, please perform another wash.

Thank you.

    Stop telling people to use toothpaste to unclog drains. I have told you 20 times, it is nuts.

    And there is no such thing as an 'exit valve', just an electric pump and a drain tube. I just don't know how you dream this stuff up!

Can I put tide pods in this machine ? If so do I put them directly in the washing machine drum

Hi,

Tide pods can be used in all front loading washing machines including HE ( High Efficiency ) washing machines. You put them directly into the drum and place clothes on top.

I have a Samsung eco bubble WF1804WPU model that started showing the error message SUD. Any time it happens the machine stops washing as if paused and I have to press the pause button twice for it to start...

If you see such an error code on your eraser screen, then you are using too much detergent. The washing machine can not thoroughly rinse out the things, so you see such a message. This is not a critical problem. Simply turn off the machine and selectively switch it on, pre-selecting the "rinse and spin" mode and do not use excessive amounts of strirer powder anymore, because you can damage your washing machine.

How do i address a recurrent suds display and subsequent extended rinse cycle on my washer? I have tried using less soap ans always use HE soap. Thx

Unhook the water hoses at the wall and check to make sure the screens are free of debris. The pump is easy to access via the back panel--just two screws. There are blogs available that tell you how to check and replace the pump if necessary. Read all of them before you start. It is often the culprit. Good luck.

My LG1285 FHD washing machine will not complete final spin

Are you using the correct amount of the correct soap?
These machines struggle with soap overdose.
My notes:
You MUST use "HE" (High Efficiency-Low Suds) type detergent--but to use the correct amount.
Nearly all brands of "HE" detergent have incorrect instructions.

The correct amount is as follows:

HE: (2) Tablespoons Per Washload

HE 2X (double concentrated) : (1) Tablespoon

HE 3X (triple concentrated): (1) Teaspoon

This reduces/prevents:

1) Musty Odor

2) "LE" Error/Interrupted Cycle

3) L-O-N-G Cycle Times (longer than time displayed)

4) Insufficient Cleaning Results

5) Small Water Leaks from the air vent behind the washer or at the
front door gasket

6) Damaged Hall Effect Sensor (on 2007 or older LG washers)

7) Reduced Spin Speeds (laundry not spin-dried effectively)

Most consumers were doing what is *normally* the right thing to do, which is to follow directions on the detergent label. In this rare case--those directions should be entirely disregarded.

Additionally--in many LG washers--the liquid dispenser cup (blue cup) has a "MAX" line on the white siphon cap.
This was a very big *faux pas* on LGs part--this "MAX" line has NOTHING to do with measuring detergent and should never be used as a guide for determining correct detergent amount.
The "MAX" line indicates how much liquid must be in the blue dispenser cup before it DISPENSES from the bottom of the cup.
This is a very,very frustrating mistake that gives owners much grief.

After three months of incorrect type of detergent or incorrect amount of the correct detergent used--musty odor begins to occur.
After more than two years--a significant amount of soap scum/curd has accumulated in the washer. Odor-causing bacteria flourishes on this build-up.
It is imperative to remove this slimy residue. Tide sells a product called "TIDE WASHING MACHINE CLEANER" which is very effective.

Once a tub has become heavily contaminated--normal methods of performing a TUB CLEAN cycle won't "cut it".

Add the entire packet of "TIDE WASHING MACHINE CLEANER" directly into the tub (no laundry) and close the door.

Press and hold: SPIN SPEED & SOIL LEVEL buttons--then press POWER button.
Wait for door to lock.

Press the START button (6) times--this will fill the tub with hot water to the maximum setting when it stops filling.

Press the START button two more times--this will enable the tub to tumble.
After 3 hours--turn "off" the washer.
Turn the washer back "on".
Select the shortest wash cycle (usually "quick wash") and press "START". This will rinse out the tub.
This method of "TUB CLEAN" is *not* from a service manual but has been the best method for cleaning out LG washers more than a year into incorrect detergent useage.

After this--use the correct amount of "HE" detergent & perform a "TUB CLEAN" cycle every (4) months using the *tub clean* option on the control panel.

Most digital-controlled front load washers have a software feature that consumers are unaware of.
If excess suds is detected by the MAIN BOARD (which monitors motor electrical load during rinse & final spin) the "suds kill mode" will be enabled.
This causes the washer DISPLAY CLOCK to stall.
The washer makes an attempt to reduce/remove suds--usually a futile attempt--and ends the cycle much longer than was originally shown on the DISPLAY.

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".

Suds in Sears Kenmore Elite Front Load Washer HE4t

I have a 2005 model HE-4-T washer. The SUDS error kept showing up. The problem was easy to fix. Step 1: Remove the sectional panel below the door by removing the 3 screws (7mm socket) on the lower edge, tilt the top towards you and lift out. Step 2: In the center of the section that you just exposed, locate the 3-inch, round, beige colored debris trap just prior to the water pump. Step 3: Unscrew the cover by turning counter clockwise while gently pulling towards yourself. Step 4: Remove all debris - I suggest an old toothbrush to get the small stuff. Step 5: Reverse previous steps to reinstall.

I found $1.09 in change, 4 hair barrettes, a small nail and a handfull of assorted lent. We will all check our pockets more thoroughly from know on.
