Many of our customers are surprised (and sometimes doubtful) when we explain that the problem with their washing machine was caused by using too much laundry detergent. Laundry detergent, when not used correctly, can cause all kinds of problems with your machine. In fact, a large number of the washer repair problems we encounter are caused by improper use of laundry soap.
You may have a laundry soap problem if you notice these three signs:
- Washer won't drain, stops mid-cycle, and/or has an error code.
- Washing machine leaves dark spots / rust on my clothing.
- Washer has a foul odor and/or causes a pungent odor in clothing.
