My washing machine just fills up with soap about every 3rd wash. I have run machine on empty and with out pods

Any ideas what may be causing this and can you suggest anything to resolve it

Sorry, do you mean you can do about 2 washes fine and then on another wash your machine will fill with too many suds?

This sounds like detergent build up in your machine, after 3 washes or so, there is so much detergent left behind in the machine, so it oversuds.

Do you use pods all the time? I find it really hard to get the dosing right on them (for some loads/fabrics, the pod is just too much detergent).

I love pods as they're convenient, but only use them if I have a decent full load. This is where powder/liquids are really handy as the dose can be adjusted exactly to the load/soil.

If it is soap build up in the machine, I would run an empty hot wash cycle to clean the machine out (you may need to do this 3 or more times, til no more suds are present).
