Putting it in where laundry detergent normally goes will mean the softener is instead dispensed in the wash cycle. If that's all you put in, you're not putting in any detergent, so the wash cycle is just acting as a long rinse. To fix it, just re-run the load with detergent and softener in their correct dispensers.
Similarly, you may ask, can you put detergent and fabric softener together?
NO fabric softener. So, I added about an ounce of liquid Downy to some Tide he turbo liquid and washed a load with detergent and softener TOGETHER. Of course suds were greatly diminished during the wash cycle (fine with me), but everything came out clean and SOFT, even after 3 deep water rinses.
Also Know, what are the 3 compartments in a washing machine drawer? 1 Main wash compartment: Detergent for the main wash, water softener, pre-soaking agent, bleach and stain remover. 2 Softener compartment: Fabric softener (do not fill higher than the line indicated by MAX). 3 Prewash compartment: Detergent for prewash or starch.
Similarly, you may ask, how do I put fabric softener in my washing machine without a dispenser?
If there isn't a dispenser, then you have some options:
- Wait for the rinse cycle and then pour the fabric softener into the tub when it's filling up with water.
- Buy a dispenser that you can put in with the wash.
- Use dryer sheets instead of liquid fabric softener.
- Use wool dryer balls (thanks to M. A.
Where do you put the detergent and softener in the washing machine?
Put the detergent in compartment “2” of the drawer. For heavily soiled laundry, choose a programme with prewash. Put 1/4 of the detergent in compartment “1”, 3/4 in compartment “2” of the drawer. When using water softeners, first put in the detergent, then add the softener to compartment “2”.
