The laundry does not
get clean with liquid
detergent.
Laundry has a gray
sticky residue.
There is white detergent
residue on dark laundry.
Items with greasy
soiling are not clean
after a wash program.
Frequently asked questions
Possible cause
Liquid detergents do
not contain bleaching
agents. Fruit, coffee
and tea stains may not
be removed.
– Not enough
detergent was used
to dissolve greasy
deposits in heavily
soiled laundry.
– The laundry was
soiled with grease
(oils, lotions).
The powder detergent
was not completely
dissolved because of
hard water. These
residues are difficult to
remove.
– Add a Pre-wash to the program. Use liquid
detergent for the pre-wash.
– Use a powder detergent for the main wash.
Use detergent which is specially formulated for
heavily soiled work clothes. Contact the detergent
manufacturer for more information.
Solution
– Use powder bleach.
(Be sure this is suitable
according the fabric care
labels of the laundry.)
– Fill compartment j with
powder bleach and use a
dispenser ball for the
liquid detergent.
– Never put liquid
detergent and bleach
together in the same
wash compartment.
– Add more detergent to
laundry with grease
stains or use a liquid
detergent.
– Run a 140°F program
with liquid detergent to
clean the washer before
using it for laundry again.
– After drying, remove
white residues with a
clothes brush.
– In the future, use liquid
detergent.
