I have heard that the signal volume is low and wondering if there was a way to loud-en it up?

Answer: 
Signal volume is fine for me, there is a high, low, and off setting depending on what you want. I can hear the high setting if I'm on the same floor, and upstairs if there isn't much other noise.

Answer: 
The only way that I have found to turn up the sound is to hold the Signal button until it is on the high setting. (Still not too loud - but louder than the low setting.

This question was previously posted, and Oxi-Clean does work with HE washers. The question is how can I use BOTH my liquid HE detergent (i.e. Tide, Gain) and my Oxi-Clean powder in the same load?

Answer: 
If you're using the machine's dispenser, both products must either be liquid or powder. Otherwise place your liquid detergent in the dispenser drawer and add powdered oxi to the tub prior to adding the clothes.

Answer: 
Yes, but I would get the larger tub machine for your application. The soft close lid of the larger machine would be a plus for your use, particularly if several different people, each somewhat unfamiliar with a "new" machine's operation were using it.

Actually I have two of these machines at two locations - one is the larger, the other the smaller. Both are excellent and there is no difference in cleaning. Given this machine has no agitator in the normal sense, I am surprised how clean the cloths are.

You will not be disappointed.

I have a friend who has complained about the H.E. top loading washers having frequent problems with "unbalanced" loads: Does this happen more frequently with a larger capacity ( over 4.0 c.u.) machine, especially if most of the laundry loads are small?

Also can I wash a queen -sized comforter in an LG top-loading washer with a 3.7 c.u. capacity?

Answers

Answer: 
You can wash the comforter all by itself because it is relatively large.

The general rule for these washers is to make sure to never put only one moderately sized (or smaller) item in for a wash. During the spin cycle it will go to one side and throw the washer out of balance.

If you put in more than one item, they will balance each other during the spin cycle.

Answer: 
If you load the washer like a donut and leave the middle somewhat clear you will not have any balancing issues. I remember reading someone else recommending this before I purchased the machine. It really seems to work. The one time I had an issue is when I first got my machine and I didn't put enough clothes into the tub...I only had one set of king size sheets. The balance got off since there weren't enough items in the tub.
