Poor soil removal


Possible Cause What to Do

Wash time

Select a higher soil level option (Wash Smart models only).

Wash temperature

Adjust your wash temperature to suit the type of soil (e.g. warm for grease, cold for mud). Increased temperature generally improves wash performance.

Detergent type

Using low-sudsing detergent suitable for front-loaders, adjust the quantity of detergent with the size of the wash load.

Heavily soiled load

Try the PRE-WASH or RINSE+ functions.

Mixed soiled loads

Make sure to wash lightly and heavily soiled items separately.

Washer dirty

After a very dirty wash load, put your empty washer through a RINSE cycle to remove leftover dirt.
