Excessive suds

Issue:
If you see excessive suds in the washer, you’re likely using too much high-efficiency (HE) detergent. Remove the wet clothes from the washer and add 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil to the tub to dissipate the excessive suds. Restart the washer on a normal cycle without adding any additional detergent. After the cycle ends, run the clean washer cycle with bleach added to rinse out suds residue from the washer tub. Reduce the amount of high-efficiency (HE) detergent that you use to avoid excessive suds.
