According to wise housewives, here are good tips to help you use your washing machine carefree without worrying about wasting electricity and water:
Do not wash too little or too much clothes: This way both helps clean clothes and avoids damage to the machine. When overloaded, the washing machine often makes a loud noise and may stop the drum rotation. There are many cases, when you put too many items, during the washing process, the clothes fall out of the drum. It was only when the repairman removed the drum that the owner found the clothes between the drum and the machine frame. Meanwhile, washing less will make cleaning clothes more difficult.
Besides, if your washing machine has a hot water washing mode, when rinsing the fabric, you only need to use cold water to save energy. When not washing, disconnect the power completely from the machine. Energy Star standard washing machines use 50% less water than conventional washing machines.
Select the appropriate water level: Current washing machines have 3 water levels corresponding to each washing cycle. Depending on the amount of clothes, choose the appropriate water level. If the clothes are small, you should only choose a low water level, this not only saves water but also helps to wash faster, resulting in more electricity savings.

With clothes that are too dirty, you should rub them first and then put them in the washing machine, don’t solve it by adding too much detergent because it won’t work.
