Way to ferret out the problem! Your theory seems sound. So we should tell customers to ignore detergent instructions and follow machine manufacturer's instructions but modify the amount depending on detergent strength ie regular or double concentration?

For cases where the label is giving idiot directions and telling the customer to use too much, absolutely!  As far as I know, all the big commercial brands, including Woolite, instruct customers to use two to four times too much detergent.  Some of the boutique brands (e.g., Shaklee) give correct usage amounts on their label.  

 

HE detergents are pretty much all the same chemistry so the usage amount is the same regardless of brand.  The only variable is the concentration.  The correct detergent usage amounts are:

 

HE: 2 tablespoons

 

HEx2: 1 tablespoon

 

HEx3: 1 teaspoon

It's always fun to complete a repair and watch the lady toss that first load into the now working machine, until she grabs the soap bottle and puts in as much soap as the cap will hold.

lol but too bad he's such a nice guy. If it was me, I'd post you a close up video of a nice creamy bag balmed-smoothed middle finger, rotating it slowly making sure you get every possible point of view while asking "is this better?" It may not be PC but it'll certainly be hilarious. I guess that's why he runs such a great site and I don't. lol

Scott, I'm not going to tell them to get another detergent. As a recovering educator and Catholic economist, I'll teach 'em dosage instructions and sell them an additional tablespoon scoop.

Dayyam, reviewing the video I see that I had some monster donkey dicks sticking out of my fingers below the cuticles.  I can see how that would be distracting.  I'll pay more attention to that in future videos.  Thanks for making me aware of it, Kirk-- I really appreciate all feedback, on content as well as production!
