Check all pockets for loose items.
¼ cup should be all you need, but check the detergent label. Excess soap can damage the machine, leave clothes dirty, and even leave them wet.
Use laundry pods for a premeasured, well-balanced clean. Place pods in the washer drum before you load clothes and never in the detergent slot
Only fill machine loosely, 2/3 full. Overfilling a washer can cause clothes to not get properly clean.
Clean the lint trap before each use for best performance.
Never place materials like rubber or plastics inside a dryer. They can melt and cause fire.
Remove clothing promptly when the cycle finishes to prevent wrinkles.
Use dye and fragrance-free varieties of your favorite detergent and softener for sensitive skin concerns.
