The first step to achieving wrinkle-free, clean clothes is to understand how much your washer can hold. We do not recommend overfilling your machine. Your clothing will not be clean if you are adding too many items. As a rule of thumb, fill your machine ⅔ full.
The clothes should be able to move freely in the water with agitation. Loading your machine properly will result in your clothes being clean and wrinkle-free at the end of the cycle.
Water is the most important factor when trying to achieve clean clothing. "Sloshing" is a great sound when hearing your machine work.
A standard load of laundry is 8-12 lbs. If you have a newer washing machine it may hold up to 3 loads! Loading the machine with many items can result in damaged clothes and even a broken washing machine.
If your machine goes off balance it is usually caused by overloading. You should always check the machine’s manual for the capacity recommendation. Frequently overloading your machine can result in a damaged motor and washtub.
Understanding the capacity of your machine extends the life of your machine and helps you get those clean clothes you were hoping for!
