Q:

cloth diapers

A:

I know how important it is to have a good working washer in the home so that it can properly clean the cloth diapers. While you are waiting for your expert answer, I did some research on the washer. At this time, I was unable to locate information that would be helpful in regards to your question. Your expert will answer within 24 to 48 hours with detailed information. Thank you for using Manage My Life.

Thanks .. any help will be greatly appreciated. We are having major issues with ammonia burns on the babies bottoms. Which is far worse than any normal diaper rash.( 16m twin girls ) and are expecting another baby in 5 weeks which we need to also prep diapers for. We have tried everything as far as different settings, soaps, etc. you can imagine to get this under control. Nothing is working.

i guess there are no "experts" to answer this. ug .. i just need the washer to fill up for the cloth diapers. Yes, I pause it and press the add more water button, but, there has got to be a way to just have the washer fill up for cloth diapers. ANY EXPERTS HAVE ANY IDEA? Write a program so, i can call you on my cell, you can deliver it through the cell. They can run diagnostic that way.

Thank you for your question on not enough water to get the diapers clean.

I can understand your concern with wanting you clothes clean and to also smell clean.

So many people do not use cloth diapers that I do not know if it was a concern when the governments D.O.E mandated the use of less water new washers.

I apologize that the washer is not meeting your expectation and I understand your concern. You do not want to be putting non clean diapers back on the baby; there skin is so sensitive to begin with.

In looking at the options on the control panel you can use the sanitize cycle and after it fills you can push and hold the extra rinse pad for three seconds and it will go to the next higher water level and you can also have the extra rinse as an option as well.

When you are using the sanitize cycle can you tell if the water temperature is rising after a few minutes of wash time? It will take a little time during wash, but you should be able to pause the machine, and check to see if the water is getting hotter.

If it is not heating up I would suggest having a technician come out to check the heater.

Another option is to use the Bulky/Bedding cycle as this puts the maximum amount of water in the machine much like the sanitize and pausing and push and holding for three seconds the extra rinse pad.

I hope these suggestions will help.

we use the 3 second add water option all the time .. we also use sanitize .. we just would like the washer to fill up automatically without having to wait, stand there , push button, wait .. push button , wait push button over and over until it fills up .. so , your saying that the bulky/bedding cycle will automatically fill up the washer with water no matter how little cloths are in it? ..

Thank you for the update Rene: I can certainly understand not wanting to wait to add the extra water. I have been consulting with a couple of our experts on site about the washer and we are asking if you can try the Heavy duty with stain treat and extra hot water option. Have you tried this combination? If you get to much water in the machine and depending on the size of the load it may float the clothes above the wash plate and not clean very well also. There is a fine line I guess. The software in the machine will only allow so much water in the machine. So maybe we need to suggest that the manufacture look at the option of a higher water lever for doing diapers. I am consulting with the manufacture rep and he is going to ask the lab back at the testing site to see what recommendation they have. I wish I had a good solution for you, and please let me know how it goes. I am sorry for this delay but we would really like to solve this problem for you if it is possible. Thank you for your patience. Sam A.

ok .. putting the washer on heavy duty / stain treat will only give you the water option of warm/cold .. it will not allow extra hot water option to be chosen .. if you press stain treat will not allow any option other than warm/cold .. extra hot is only allowed with sanitize cycle ..

Thank you for the update Rene: That is good to know. The model we have on site is apparently a little different. I will continue to investigate this issue to see if there are some other options from the testing lab that can help with this problem. Sam A.

putting it on bulk/bedding will fill up the machine .. so, that is great news .. we'll wash all the diapers like that from now on .. see, you have to do a cold wash / rinse cycle before with no soap, which we do wash no soap / rinse / rinse / rinse .. then we do a wash with soap / soak / rinse / rinse / rinse to clean the diapers .. uses a lot of water but have to get the ammonia out of them .. or it will build up then the babys get ammonia burns .. nasty red skin ..

I am also cloth diapering and I have similar problems as Rene. HE Front Load washers simply do not use enough water to rinse the thick multi-layered cloth diapers. I have given up on using my front loader's preset cycles and since my machine is out of warranty, I turned the screw on the pressure switch to make the machine use more water for everything.
