Please help we are having such trouble with our washing machine it’s unreal!! We originally had a 9kg hoover and it was leaving excessive suds in the seal of the machine and in the clothing. We tried everything, cleaning the machine, washing the clothes with the smallest amount of detergent, running with no detergent, running on different cycles, running the machine on a hot 90 degree with vinegar then washing clothing, we had 2 repair men out. One saying our machine was perfectly clean (it was only just over a year old) and he couldnt recommend changing anything we are doing as we have done everything. We gave up and got a new machine after waiting weeks for a repair man and washing piling up and now have a 7kg series 2 Bosch. We washed all of our sud soaked clothes in vinegar until there was no bubbles, then tried giving them a 40 degree wash with one bold pod (still bubbled), so vinegared again then tried with one powder non bio tesco capsule (bubbled) so vinegared again and tried with half of one (box recommends using 2!) and it still foamed up!!! We are rinsing for hours after and it’s still foaming. This is a new machine!!! We have thoroughly cleaned our kitchen drain, there is no block, and yet it’s still foaming out there too!! We have little money left now, a baby on the way and onto our last set of clean clothes, what do we do please help!!!
I saw it suggested on a frugal living site to wash clothes with vinegar instead of detergent in the machine. Will it damage the machine to use it on a daily basis? I know it is good to use vinegar every month or so to keep limescale under control etc. We have hard or very hard water if it makes a difference. Thanks!
