I was told by a factory rep that the proper way to load a washer was to pick up the clothes and put them in the tub until the clothes were up to the top. Where most people go wrong, they add more clothes and push down. Clothes don't get clean just because they are in soapy water. They have to be rubbed.  The clothes need to have room to roll over. The more roll over, the more cleaning.
