I found I was putting in some cases twice the amount of detergent recommended by the detergent manufacturer, in my case it was Tide HE detergent. I was adding liquid detergent to the fill line in the washer but for a small to medium load that's twice the amount needed. This is my third washer in twelve years and the one before that only lasted about four years. I never knew. Hope this helps.
