FL leaving white clothes dingy
I have a Frigidaire 2940 front loader, 18 months old. Overall, I'm pleased with the performance, but I've found that lately my whites are looking a bit dingy.
I wash whites in hot water. My machine doesn't have an onboard heater, but it is right next to my hot water heater, so the water doesn't cool down too much.
I do use chlorine bleach, I have tried regular Clorox and the new Ultimate Care Clorox. For detergent, I use Cheer, All Small& Mighty, or Gain liquids (HE of course). I have also tried Sears HE liquid.
I do keep the machine clean, running an empty cycle with either bleach or Cascade Complete every couple of weeks, and I constantly wipe out the boot and around the rubber seal. No evidence of mold or mildew.
I have softened water, and I wonder if the salt content is causing the problem.
