I'm tired of having the same stupid argument with my wife about overstuffing loads in the washing machine. She claims she fills it up to the line - which is sometimes true. But she also PACKS it in tight to the line, just as tight as it will go. How do I know? Every single time it goes into the spin cycle, it's starts banging like it's going through the wall and I have to go stop it, adjust what's in there, and restart it. It almost ALWAYS becomes unbalanced. And then she doesn't understand why the kids break out from soap or softener residue still in our clothes. She will argue until she's blue in the face that she doesn't overstuff it - and then gets in a huff and asks me if I'll help do the laundry since she's now going to have to reduce the load size due to my unreasonable demands. I just tell her to do what she wants, and when we'll just have to replace the machine sooner.

I doubt that even printing out a recommended load guide would help justify anything - but I thought I would ask if there IS such a thing anywhere online?

I guess I should say STUFFS it full instead of "packs." My point is that by no means is it loosely filled in a way that you can possibly have enough water to properly clean and rinse the clothing. This is evident by the condition of our clothes that seem to get 'worn out' faster than normal, don't always seem to get clean, or have the soap/softener residue as mentioned before.

I'll get the model info tonight. It's a few years old and I've replaced parts on it myself already.

Here is a sneaky way to get your point across, Disable the machine somehow (safely) and when she says its not working, test the machine. The fault will be overloading and the part will take a couple days to get here. When she is out, "fix" the machine and say it cost $100. Do this until she stops overloading it, costing $100 each time. Drop hints that the money could be spent on nicer things for the family or her. hehehe :devil:

except maybe the Commercial Front Load Washers at the Laundromat,
but those are completely different ...
