We just bought the Maytag Centennial HE/TL washer from Lowes. Our old machine was a dinosaur but MAN did it get our cloth diapers clean clean clean!! It was the old school agitator with like 3 settings. We decided to buy an HE just because it seemed to be a great deal and has good reviews. Did my first load of CDs and they are NOT clean. I am so dissappointed. After watching some youtube videos on the HE/TL washer it just doesn't seem like enough water is going to be getting to my clothes. It also has a lock feature which I really don't like at all. I don't like that I can't see what's going on in there! Sure, I could spend an extra $300 to get a see through lid, but unfortunately, that's not in our budget.
Looking for washing routines that work for anyone who has TL/HE washer! Willing to give it another go before trading out.
Also, what kind of soap do you use? We have been use HE Liquid Tide and that worked perfectly with our old washer.
