Not Rinsing Well


Possible Solutions

Are you using HE High Efficiency detergent?

Use of non-HE detergent can cause a film residue. Use only HE detergent.

Did you use "no splash" or "easy pour" liquid chlorine bleach? 

This type of liquid chlorine bleach contains a thickening agent that may create excess suds in washers. If this is the case, run the washer with regular liquid bleach products.

Were you washing a large load?

  • Consider reducing your load size. Leave enough space in the washer to allow the load to tumble freely. 
  • Avoid tightly packing the washer. Clothing that is tightly packed in the washer may trap the detergent and not allow it to completely dissolve. Load with dry items only.
  • Always use only HE High Efficiency detergent.

Was a low-speed wash cycle used?

  • Powdered detergent may not dissolve well in low-speed wash cycles, such as Delicate or Handwash. Use liquid detergent for best results. Always use only HE High Efficiency detergent.
  • Use cycle designed for the fabrics being washed.

Is the wash-water temperature colder than 60°F (15.5°C)?

Laundry detergents are formulated to clean well at temperatures above 60°F (15.5°C). Water temperatures below 60°F (15.5°C) do not dissolve detergents well, especially powdered detergents. Use liquid detergent for colder water temperatures.
