Too many suds in your washing machine? Watch this video for the most common causes of suds and tips for eliminating suds in your washer.

When it comes to laundry, there can be too much of a good thing. You might think extra detergent means extra-clean clothes, but that’s not the case. Using too much detergent may lead to oversudsing, which can leave residue on your clothes and wreak havoc on your washing machine.

Another cause of too many suds is using non-HE detergent when you’ve got a high-efficiency machine.

Watch our video for tips to prevent the dreaded Suds Monster from terrorizing your washer. In addition, you’ll learn how your machine will attempt to fight it off.

Remember to consult your owner’s manual first for information on how to properly care for your specific appliance. If you seem to be doing everything right and are still having problems, call in the experts to take a look.
