Raise/elevate the rear of the dryer so that it is about 1/2 to 1 inch higher off the floor than the front of the dryer.

This will cause small loads of wet laundry to continually tumble at front of the drum (towards the moisture sensor).

When clothing tumbles---and does not continually touch/contact the Moisure Sensor---the Main Board will begin an accelerated termination-of-the-cycle.

Erratic or no signal from the Moisture Sensor will be interpreted by the Main Board as an indication that the clothing is dry or almost dry).

To eliminate:

Musty odor

L-O-N-G cycle times

Dingy/yellowing whites

Suds error message

Slow spin speeds

Intermittent water leaks (from rear of washer)

And other annoying symptoms which vary brand-to brand.

Read below:

The *correct* amount of HE (High Efficiency) detergent that should be used in any front load or agitatorless top load washer with tub sizes 3.0 cu ft and larger is as follows:

HE: (2) Tablespoons Per Wash Load

HE 2X: (1) Tablespoon

HE 3X: (1) Teaspoon

Perform a TUB CLEAN CYCLE every (4) months.

Use: "Tide Washing Machine Cleaner"
