Oversudsing in new Miele - possible old clothes issue?
I have a Miele 4842 that is about 3 weeks old. I've done about two dozen loads in that time, mostly with the Miele powders that the dealer gave me, but some with Tide HE. Have not observed any suds at all on any washes to date.
Today, first load of the day, kids' clothes - there were visible suds left after the normal wash cycle. I freaked out and called the 10 year old to show me how much detergent he used. It was the correct (small) amount of the HE bottle we've been using. So that's not the problem.
I put the sudsy clothes through a 'quick rinse' cycle and the clothes continue to produce suds. I'm now on the THIRD 'quick rinse' cycle and still seeing more suds than I typically have seen with this washer.
The only thing I can think is, perhaps there was an excess of regular (non HE) detergent residue from clothes that haven't yet been washed in the new washer? The old TL it replaced had problems with the agitator, so it's possible it was not rinsing well.
What, if anything, should I do to get the soap out of this load of clothes? I don't want to put them in the dryer at this point, I feel like they're not clean/rinsed if they continue to extract suds.
