Maytag Clothes Washer Bleach Dispenser Instructions


Some washing machines, including the Maytag washing machine, come with a bleach dispenser. The dispenser is attached to the inside of the machine and dilutes the bleach before it reaches the water. This is important because undiluted bleach can completely ruin clothes. If the bleach is poured directly into the water, the strong chemicals can "burn" holes into your clothing or cause thin clothing to shred apart. If you pour your bleach into the dispenser, it will be diluted and safer for your whites.

Things You'll Need

  • 1 cup bleach
  • Measure out how much bleach you'll need to avoid over-bleaching your clothes. For a regular sized load, about 1 cup of bleach is sufficient.

  • Pour the bleach directly into the triangle-shaped bleach dispenser, located at the bottom right-hand corner of the washing machine.

  • Turn the washing machine on to the appropriate setting. Typically, bleach is only used on whites---mostly underwear and under shirts---so the water setting should be on "hot."

  • Add the laundry detergent to the hot water. Then, add your white clothing and shut the lid of the washing machine.

Tips & Warnings

  • If you use non-chlorinated bleach (color safe bleach), pour that directly into the washing machine, not the bleach dispenser.
