    Precautions while using Washing Machine

    Measure your detergent

    Read the appliance instruction manual to make sure you use the correct type and amount of detergent for your machine. Too much soap can leave residue on your clothes and cause excess wear and tear on your washer, and high efficiency washers require a special, low sudsing detergent.
