help me clean my socks with Maytag Maxima 7000 XL washer
I have a 3 month old Maytag Maxima 7000 XL washer (MHW7000AW). I feel like it's not cleaning our socks very well and think I must be doing something wrong. This might be ridiculous, but it's the first washer I've owned, so it's very, very likely that my washing techniques are not the best.
I've washed socks/undies on Normal and Sanitize; increased temp; and added an extra rinse. I've used Country Save powder, Tide Ultra Vivid HE powder, and Wisk Deep Clean HE liquid for detergents. The socks that keep looking dingier and dingier are my young children's white socks. Sometimes it looks like nothing must have washed out of them.
I haven't done a real test of socks and detergents and settings because I just don't have time. I don't think I've tried the PowerWash setting yet.
Can anyone offer me either a suggestion or setting or a detergent that I should try? I truly believe it's a case of operator error not faulty equipment.
Thanks very much in advance!
