Front Load Washer is Leaving clothes Discolored or with Dye Transfer

Are the load items discolored?

Dye transfer can occur when mixing colors in a load.

Sort loads before laundering.

Separate dark load items from lights and whites. Mixing different colors may result in dye transferring to the lighter color items, giving them a dingy appearance.

Always use HE Detergent and follow the detergent manufacture's recommended amount.

Refer to the video below for proper sorting and loading of your clothing:
