Oversudsing may cause leaks and blocked drains within the clothes washer. To reduce oversudsing when it takes place, pour ½ cup white vinegar mixed with cold water into the clothes washer.
If experience problems with the water temperature, make sure the faucets are fully open and there is enough hot water available. Also check to see if the screens in the inlet valve or hoses aren’t clogged.
