Can You Use Powder Laundry Detergent In He Washers?
Yes, You can use powder detergent in HE Washer. A high-efficiency (HE) washer typically has a drawer that slides from the front of the machine with special compartments for liquid or powdered HE detergent as well as bleach and fabric or water softener.
Absolutely never use more than the recommended levels of laundry detergent, laundry bleach and laundry softener; There are marked guides on the drawers which are very important and show the maximum level for each product.
You can also use a single-dose detergent pack in a HE washer. Unlike liquids or powders, these must be placed directly into the washer’s drum.
And you should do this before adding your clothes; Putting the laundry detergent pack after the cloth can prevent it from dissolving completely. This will not clean the clothes properly.
HE detergents produce smaller amounts of suds than regular detergents, so less water is needed to rinse clothes.
Out of necessity, they are even better than regular detergent at preventing dirt from re-attaching to clothing.
Doing so can impair machine performance and leave undiluted detergent on your clothes and a foul-smelling residue inside the washer drum.
Using the wrong detergent can also void the manufacturer’s warranty on your washer.
So when shopping for detergent always look for the high-efficiency logo and avoid one without it.
