properly installed and the nuts tightened.
Reset the rear
leveling legs (if needed). See "Installation

Did you use enough detergent? Follow manufacturer's
directions.

dispensers. Wipe up all spills.

safe bleach.
Load too wet
Did you use the right cycle for the load being washed?

Cold rinses leave loads wetter than warm rinses. This is
normal.
Did you follow the manufacturer's
directions when adding
detergent and fabric softener?

to remove soil and hold it in suspension.
Dilute fabric softener and add to the rinse portion of a cycle
only. Do not drip fabric softener on clothes.
