When you have a high-efficiency top load washer, you need to use high efficiency (HE) detergents. These detergents work with washers. Below you'll find what you need to know about high efficiency detergents and why they are so... efficient.
The sud-reducing action of high efficiency detergents help keep residue from clinging to the clothing as the washer goes from one cycle to the next.
Use no more than 1/4 cup high efficiency laundry detergent in a standard washer for a normal to large load. Use less if the load is lightly soiled or smaller.
