Gain Detergent Powder foaming problem

Posted by larry1956 (My Page) on

Had a wet floor aroung the washer, being the handyman that I'am, took the front of the washer off ran a large load with a scoop full of Gain detergent and let washer do it thing while looking for leaks. What I found was that when the washer goes to spin the wash water out, before the rinse cycle starts, so much foam is generated that it comes out an overflow tube and dumps inside the chassis of the washer which then drip out onto the floor as liquid as the foam dissipates. Anybody else see this, and what r ur suggestions?

Try a low sudsing HE detergent, or use less of the Gain.

I don't know how many ounces of detergent are in a full scoop, but that sounds like a huge amount. Unless you have very hard water, I'd start by cutting that in half and work down from there.

I use Gain HE and have never had that problem.. accidentally bought a regular box of Gain once and it did suds like crazy...If you have some you need to go ahead and use up just add a little fabric softner in the wash cycle and it will cut the suds...
