It all started in '73 ("gas crisis")
Then in '77---Jimmy Carter gave us a new federal agency---the Department of Energy---the best thing since Moses freed God's children from bondage.
1980---Jimmy's gift-to-humanity becomes self-aware and assumes a bureaucratic role---dictating the new energy doctrine.
1981-to the present---Like the "Terminator"---the DOE mandates endlessly and will NOT stop until it is destroyed.
The problem is though---many people blame manufacturers---rather than that massive entity which spawned the DOE in the first place.
In my lifetime---we've "gone through" a period of tremendous concern about the earth becoming an ice-cube---to "global warming". A period of only 40 million years (oops, 40 years,sorry).
L-O-N-G cycle times
Suds error message
Slow spin speeds
Intermittent water leaks (from rear of washer)
And other annoying symptoms which vary brand-to brand.
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"

I never really liked the dependable care washer, I thought the belt drive Whirlpool cleaned the clothes better and was a solid machine.
Right, the water injector on the Dependable Care Maytag's was a little overengineered, and you're right, agitation was rather weak on these machines.
BTW, the secret why the outer tub seals and basket drive bearings rarely went bad on the Whirlpool washers is because the gearcase did not spin in the spin cyle like the Frigidaire's the GE's and the Maytags did.
