I've always been told to add about a Tbsp for small loads and 1/4 c. for larger loads.Originally Posted by Scrap Happy
My husband's company sells appliances (this is where we got ours) and they coach the salesmen to warn customers not to treat these machines like normal ones. You're not supposed to put just any detergent in the machines. In the past, to help cleanse delicate fabrics, I would use small amounts of dish detergent which was recommended as being gentler on fabric than normal detergent. Now, you're not supposed to use that at all. You can only use detergents recommended for "he" machines.
What I did for this new one is wait until the washer was full of water, pause the machine to unlock the lid, and add the vinegar straight to the water. DH says that the vinegar isn't recommended in the tubing for the bleach area but there's been no definite research done on it.
