I just started watching his videos and I gotta say, I'm really impressed! Especially by how amazing his whole life turned around ever since he got out of prison, very inspiring! Now I know I'll never use fabric softener in my washing machines:)

His claim on “fabric softener destroys the machine” is somewhat false though using it excess can cause build up but using the correct amounts doesn’t allow for much build on the outer tub surfaces.

Reply 3. Very accurate. If you maintain your machine and clean it regularly with cleaning cycles and you don’t over use the softener it’ll be fine and will take much longer to buildup.

I don't care...

I don't care for him. His suggestions don't work. I'll stick with my trusty laundry detergent and fabric softener and use the recommended amounts of each. Clothes come out clean and fresh.

laundry detergent and fabric softener

And besides, I put laundry detergent and fabric softener in their proper dispensers.

@sean a806

I agree. I've used fabric softener without issues. I still do. Even worse is only using 2 tablespoons or 1 ounce of the laundry detergent. How will it clean clothes?

Fabric softener leaves residue in the flush-through dispensers on my Neptune TL and F&P AquaSmarts.  The AquaSmarts flush and drain the softener dispenser five times, still leaves residue that needs to be occasionally cleaned.  I don't use softener on every load but eventually there's enough accumulated residue that cleaning is required.  I can tell when cleaning is needed because the siphon stops working and the dispenser remains full of water.

fabric softner is a complete waste of money

Not to mention the effect on a machine . Back when the damm stuff first came on the market it actually attacked rubber parts in machines causing them to perish .it also had a similar effect on elastic in clothing . As an apprentice back in the 70s i would have to clean out disgusting machines and then replace most of its rubber parts . when the customer was paying their bill i took great pleasure in telling them why the bill was so high and what had caused the problem usually showing them the damaged rubber parts . All these years later and it seems people have been brainwashed into thinking they actually need to use this crap . gone are the days when freshly laundered clothes simply smelled of fresh air

reply #3.

I agree. The reason why is because he must've poured too much to make it appear that fabric softener kills your machine. Use it properly, and you won't have an issue. It's like taking the proper amount of medicine as prescribed. Use it properly and you will have little to no side effects.

fabric conditioner and rubber

Surprisingly, Samsung seem to have made a poor choice of rubber for the seals used in the dispenser pump used in their Uk sold auto dose machines.
