Exclamation What settings for washing would I use? PICTURES INSIDE

I have a maytag top loading machine. I'm wondering what settings/steps would I use to wash my cloth diapers and inserts. I've included pictures of my wash machine. (I believe you can click on them to make them larger)




Also, when drying diapers what setting would you use? I'm using a whirlpool dryer (It needs to be replaced! Takes over 90 minutes to dry a normal load of laundry)



Thanks in advance for anyone that can help me. I'm a newb

I would definitely use hot water along with the max amount of water. As for the dryer, I have a gas dryer and I use high heat on pockets and inserts but of you could I would line dry your covers. My hoa says no to line drying! Good luck!

depending on the amount of clothdiapers your washing & the size of your washer. i would use ither large or super pluse, w/ hot water, & eatra rinse. the dryer. i would use one of the settings on the left. not the time drying/fluf air setings. whatever one drys the diapers the best for u.

Hot super wash, lots of water! Don't forget to pre wash and extra rinse! Dry on a low heat setting..I've had some fuzzibunz melt when I accidentally put them on med. heat.

I would use hot, super plus, super wash, extra rinse, and dry on the energy preferred setting.

This sounds good.

It wouldn't hurt to add some wool dryer balls, it helps cut down on the drying time.
