Tips for Using Washers and Dryers

  1. Don’t overload the machines: leave 5 inches between the top of your clothes and the top of the basket.
  2. Pile clothes loosely and make sure nothing is caught in the door when it closes.
  3. Use only detergent labeled “hE” (liquid is preferred) and use no more than 2 tablespoons. Too much detergent will produce soapy residue on clothes at the end of the wash cycle. It will also adversely affect the next wash cycle on that machine. hE pods are a convenient way to dispense detergent, as 1 pod = 1 load. Please do not use powdered detergents!
  4. Clean the dryer lint filter before and after each load.

 
LAUNDRY FAQs

Why do my clothes still have soap on them after the wash cycle has completed?

  • You most likely used too much detergent. You only need 2 tablespoons of liquid “hE” detergent (check the label).

Why should I use pods to dispense detergent in the washers?

  • Pods are pre-measured for hE washers, so there is no chance of oversudsing. When using pods, do not put them in the soap dispenser drawer. Instead, toss one pod per load inside the tub with your dirty clothes. 

When the washer display says “E=do” or "E=dL” what does that mean?

  • E=do means the machine door isn’t closed; E=dL indicates a problem with the door lock.

What do I do if the card reader is unresponsive or the machine doesn’t start?
