Resolved Question:

I bought a Bravos Automatic Washer 10-14-09. It has done a real good job cleaning my husbands Carhartt overalls untill just lately. He get pretty dirty-not greasy-and for some reason that look like they have never gone through the washer. Am real frustrated with this problem. I don't see that you endore a certain brand of detergent so have just used any HE detergent that is in my price range. I hope you can tell me what the problem is so his overalls look clean again. Thanks for your time.

There are no error codes when I am using the machine.

Like I said it is just not getting my husbands dirty overalls clean. It started out fine but has gotten worse. It isn't a very good investment if it doesn't clean your clothes.

Does it seem to take longer for a cycle to complete now? I have to go to my regular job now, and will not be back on till tonight..
Customer: replied 7 years ago.
NO. The time it says is usually how long it takes to do a load.
Expert:  Chas replied 7 years ago.
That is just estimated time, not the real time, about ten minutes into the wash with clothes in it, pause it and open the lid, see if all the clothes are wet at that time...

I decided to try Tide laundry soap and some Biz and that seemed to help a lot. Guess I am going to have to use more than just laundry soap.
Expert:  Chas replied 7 years ago.
Well a lot if the GENERIC ones do not have the cleaning power of TIDE and such, also using the wrong amounts will cause problems also...
Customer: replied 7 years ago.
So the Tide and the Biz seem to be working so for now that is all I need to know. Thank you for your time.
