What is it with HE washing machines/why do you need the extra rinses with those compared to old school machines?..



If you can set the water level & put it on 'heavily soiled' will it do ok washing or do you still need extra rinses?

If you can set your water level then you should be fine. A lot of them though don't have the setting for anything but an extra rinse. My roommates HE washer looks like it barely gets the clothes wet well. Its an LG with only the extra rinse setting. HE washers don't use near as much water as the old school top loaders do & CDs need thorough rinsing/washing to get clean. Buildup is apparently a common issue with HE washers that don't use much water but if you can set your water level then that's great

I am moving into a 1 bedroom apartment that has no washer & dryer hookups so I am going to be looking into buying a portable top loading washer & a mini dryer haha :)

I set mine on heavy soiled and extra rinse. Once a week or so I'll do a bunch of extra rinses just in case it's getting build up. (washing daily).

Random question, if my dipes smell like fresh clean laundry ( i use ecos ftee and clear so it really has no smell) is that coming from washer buildup or the dryer? I'm still trying to find tto so I can strip the washer.

I am so happy I'm not the only one who had problems with an HE lol... I actually just had to throw a clean towel in with the diapers so that it was heavier and more water went in... It sucked until I figured that out...

Moses suggested doing a pre rinse with no spin to weigh it down. Have u tried that? That's what I have been doing.

I always do a pre rinse, hot wash with cold rinse, extra rinse. Every wash like that. I wish I didn't have to buy an HE. lol

I love my HE and just realized saying that I think someone asked what I have. If I sleep I forget :oops:
I have the maytag 3000 series.
Only thing is I never use rinse cycle alone. I do quick wash and I don't have it spin until the last and final rinse through. I turn spin off for everything else.

I didn't have a problem with mine til we moved. Though, I think my issue is more our water, not the machines. I think I'd still hate it with a new machine.
