scent wash in front load washers

8 posts in this topic

Really?!? I'll have to check it out.

I posted this kind of hastily last night cause I was worried about "over-sudsing" my washer. I don't even know if it matters that much, but I was just curious if anyone else had pondered it or if people just treat it the same.

I know the scent wash isn't super sudsy super wash or anything, but I don't want to cause any problems. Plus we have softened water so the bubbles really get going.

I have a front load washer and find it is a nightmare to keep the bacteria healthy. The manufacturer failed to design an appropriate are circulation method. On a top loader there was no need to wory about water proofing the gasket and even if you shut the lid the tub dries out. If you shut the door on a front loader the tub can never dry and stinks in a hurry.

All the warnings that come with the washer about recommended soap are to combat this fundamental flaw in frontloaders. I leave the door on mine open all the time I'm not using it.

There are many products that kill the unwanted bacteria and I laugh every time I see a new product that has a picture of a front loader on the bottle.

It's a big problem. If you have not experienced it yet don't mess with the mix of soaps you are using now and count yourself lucky because once the culture grows it's next to impossible to get rid of- and the manufacrurer will blame you(not the design) for introduceing a soap that feeds the culture.

We just use the regular powder in our front loader and have not had a problem.

hanso, we always leave the door open and the soap tray open on our washer for that very reason. It was recommended that we use the "cleaner" tabs once a month, but so far we haven't done that.

Andy, one could always hand wash the clothes in a bigger laundry tub or bath tub. Then let then hang dry and pack them away in a sealed container.
