Putting as many laundry items as possible into the drum of your washing machine may seem like a good idea at the time. But overloading your washing machine may not only cause it to perform poorly, but it can also cause significant damage to the machine. Overloading your washing machine is a bad idea for various reasons, which are discussed in greater detail below.
There are many important reasons to avoid overloading your washing machine.
The detergent will not circulate adequately to remove dirt and stains if the machine is not maintained correctly.
Excessive loading causes the garments to move in a vast mass, preventing them from moving freely in the drum and preventing the detergent from circulating correctly to remove dirt and stains.
The washing machine and garments may be harmed.
While the drum is overloaded, it also raises the pressure within the drum, particularly when it is rotating at a fast speed. It may cause damage to the drum bearings and, in the worst case scenario, cause the glass door to shatter. While being raised against the rubber door seal, the clothing rubs against it as the drum turns, which may leave scratches and even rips in the garments as a result.
Note: Take these warnings into account to avoid risks when placing clothes in the drum.
It is possible for garments that have been handled with cleaning agents containing solvents, such as stain removers or cleaning solvents, to explode when placed in the washing machine. Hand-cleaning these clothing well before placing them in the washing machine is recommended.
