Years and years ago my washing machine broke down and when engineer looked at it, it was clogged to the max with gukky washing powder. Anyways long story short the engineer gave me the best tip ever. Told me to put the washing powder directly into the drum and this will ensure longevity of washing machine and much cleaner clothes. I've been doing this ever since. Boy was he right!!

Thanks might give this a try - down to the last couple of the past SuperWeekend 99p Formil liquid ones at present .
Same price for similar powder at Aldi, where it's £2.99 for 2.6kg. Works out the same at £1.15 per kg or 7.5p per wash.

I've never had a problem with the powder not dissolving, I do find I can get away with using less than recommended so maybe that's why. Periodically I use a washing machine cleaner and remove the dispenser drawer to check there's no build up anywhere.

It fine in the dispenser but its builds up slightly in the drum and if you remove the drum you will find a build up behind it , this happens even with the expensive ones so using a machine cleaner periodically helps remove that build up we done see. Yes your right I found that using less does the job will try this purple one next
Have used Formil for ages now and it's just as good as the premium brands. Heat added.

Useful tip - many thanks, will give it a try.
I tried the Aldi washing powder a few years ago and it didn't dissolve in water! After the wash completed there was a big solid lump left in the powder tray.

Did you put the recommend amount in? That usually happens if you put too much in also on a cold wash

Most likely too much powder. You need nowhere as much powder as you would put in the powder tray.
I put the powder into an old white sock and place it in the drum, it basically acts like a sieve and no clumps

Should have broken it down by hand before putting it in the drawer

It was a powder when it went into the drawer! The water made it set like concrete. I must've missed the 'cement' on the list of ingredients...
