Surprisingly enough, many housewives who have a washing machine in their households do not know why they need three compartments in the detergent tray. And this is very important because it helps to avoid problems with the equipment and contributes to its durability. In addition, it affects the quality of washing and care of things.

OBOZREVATEL found out that all washing machines have three compartments in the powder tray. They are marked with the Roman numerals I and II or the Latin letters A and B, respectively, and a flower or snowflake symbol, which is often located in the middle, playing an important role in the laundry.

Number I (or the letter A). This compartment is designed for prewashing or soaking laundry. This way, the laundry is exposed to a large amount of water for a long time, which is most effective for removing stubborn and old stains. In this way, the fabric stretches and swells, making it easier for the machine to remove dirt. If soaking is not selected in the needed washing mode, you do not need to put detergent in this compartment. It only enters the drum when there are two wash modes.

Number II (or letter B). This compartment is for the main detergent. You should put detergent in this compartment regardless of the washing program.

Snowflake or flower. This compartment is intended for rinse aid, bleach, fabric softener, etc. In different washing modes, the machine takes the necessary product, thereby preventing their mixing, which can harm the fabric. You can add fabric softener before or during the wash. It is important to do this before the washing machine starts to draw water for rinsing, otherwise, the detergent will not be washed into the drum.

If the compartments are mixed up, the washing machine, for example, can wash the item with fabric softener and rinse with detergent. Or wash without detergent.

In addition, do not forget about the washing modes, which are based on the degree of contamination of things, their quantity, type of fabric, etc., water temperature and spin speed so as not to damage things.
