How to load the washing machine correctly

A washing machine is an indispensable tool for every homemaker, saving time and effort. However, choosing the wrong cycle and overloading the appliance can harm your laundry and the machine.

To keep your laundry clean after washing, you need to follow the "one-handed rule." Experts shared this advice with Express.

Overloading the washing machine with too many items can hinder the efficient operation of the appliance, resulting in dirty clothes.

According to experts, overloading the washing machine causes the laundry to clump together, preventing the clothes from moving freely in the drum and the effective circulation of the detergent.

It can also increase the pressure in the drum during high-speed spinning, which is detrimental to the machine. The detergent may not dissolve properly in the water, as the clothes absorb all the moisture, leaving detergent residue on the clothes.

To avoid this, you should leave enough space in the drum.

Experts recommend using the "one-handed rule". If you cannot fit your hand into the drum, it means that it is overloaded, and you need to remove some of the clothes.

The exact amount depends on the size of the machine and its load capacity.

Additionally, before washing, make sure to separate your laundry by fabric type and color, and avoid using excessive detergent. Residual detergent in the drum can lead to mold growth.
