    Laundry Problems

    Hi Guys,

    I am using the wahing machine at my apartmet, it costs 30 baht for a large load, its new and looks in good condition and I dont overfill it. I use Comfort as the fabric softener and the red packet powder(looks like USA in thai script)
    sorry for the ifo overload.

    Well the last few times I have used this machine and a few others, I seem to be getting some stains on clothes that were otherwise visibly clean previously. Does anyone else have this problem, if so do you have any tips or hints how to avoid??

    I was wondering is there a correct order to fill the machine? I put clothes then powder, then softener, should I let the machine fill with water b4 i put the powder and softener in??

    Sorry for such a banal question, but I am tired of ruining clothes I like.

    Cheers,
    Paul

    Do you clean the filters before you use it? They're usually on the side of the drum and my machine has two of them.

    Public ones need cleaning too. It's not difficult.

    If they are clean, then maybe the water supply is contaminated? There should be a pull-out drawer for the detergent and softener above the drum. You shouldn't put too much powder in, and I always select 'soak' for an hour.

    Are they brown marks?

    If yes, then look at the inside edge of any rubber seals.
    They often get a build up of deposit which rubs off onto the clothes
