I would suggest that you provide the make and model # of your washer and any other information that you think may help your expert respond with the best possible response.

Thank you for contacting Manage My Life. The white residue is likely due to the brand detergent that your using. Certain brands comes with the HE logo, but it is a high sudsing detergent. It can cause the clothes to feel “rough”, “stiff”, “crusty”, or leave soap streaks meaning too much detergent is being used, or it's the wrong kind of soap and it is not rinsing out of the clothing good. I recommend using and sticking to a major brand of non-HE detergents. I hope this information helps today.

I have the same prblm. I use TIDE HE and i don't use too much of it. I believe the washer does not add enough water. I want to take this washer, Kenmore W10280553A , and throw it out and I bought it onlymonths ago.
