As far as I can tell Dreft does not make a HE version yet, but you should do fine with one of these alternatives: Tide HE Free Clear
All HE Free Clear
All HE Small Mighty Free Clear
Quixtar/Amway HE Free Clear

Washing Machine Detergent


There are many questions about the type and the amount of washing machine detergent that is needed. Whether you are using a top loading washing machine or a front loading washing machine it does make a difference as to what and how much detergent to use.

Generally speaking a front loader washing machine will need to have less detergent then a top loader washing machine. Combine this with the water savings of the front load washing machine and you will get a substantial savings. However the front loading washer may be much more sensitive to many detergents. The recommendation of many manufacturers is to use HE detergent. This is designed to give less suds then many other detergents.

This is true but the use if the special detergent is not necessary. With the front loading washer you can decrease the amount of detergent used and still get great results. With warmer water you also can get better cleaning from less detergent. If you want you can also mix your fabric softener with the detergent and the fabric softener will keep the suds down for you.

If you have a top loading washer then you may want to experiment with using less detergent then you have thought would work in the past. By using warm of hot water you also can reduce the amount of detergent used and get great results.

Today’s high efficiency washers are very effective clothes washing machines. You can wash clothes with far less detergent in these efficient cleaning machines. Remember that the new machines are very sensitive to excessive suds and will even stop to allow the suds to go down before continuing on. More is not always better and with the washing machine of today, more may make it take a very long time to wash that load of clothing.

Samsung washer error code f1


What kind of detergent are you using? F1 in most cases means that the wrong type of detergent is being used. If it's a front-loader, you should be using h3 detergent.

Can we use powered Dreft Detergent to wash our baby clothes. Have been unable to find liquid detergent for baby clothes. Please respond promptly.


I would highly NOT recommend it. powder likes to clump inside the front loads. I would use a fragrence(SP) free soap if dreft is not available inliquid or h.e. as well be aware most baby detergents are not flame retardent. meaning in case of fire the soap residue left on the clothes naturally do not resist to flames as most detergents do.

When in wash it dosent remove all soap powder from clothes


I don't know how you are administering the soap powder to the machine..but for one, its recommended that you use detergent thats made exclusively for the front loader washer, usually says "he" on the front of the LIQUID detergent, they recommend that you use liquid detergent on top of that, BUT if you have to use regular powder detergent it must be put inside the tub and NOT the pull out detergent drawer. The reason why they want you to use liquid is because the powder detergent is not concentrated and when you use it, it lathers up alot and its harder for the front loader machine to clean out the clothes and I was told that they (sales agents) have heard of soap suds and bubble floods coming from the machine due to either using the powder detergent or using too much. Hope that this helps!!

Which is better a top loader or front loader washing machine?


Front Loading Washing Machine: Fully automatic.
1. Better washing than toploading as technologically proofed.
2. No extra effort except putting cloths and detergent inside.
3. No need to observe in between while washing. Start and forgot. You can go market and come back.
4. No issue if electricity or water went out during washing.
4. Take more water compare to toploading semi-automatic.
5. You can not open it once it started.

Top Loading Washing Machine: Semi
1. Save water and detergent.
2. Need extra effort to put the cloth from one box to another.

Bosch maxx classic washing machine doesn't clean clothes


There are a lot of things to consider when trying to solve this problem. Obviously a front loader washes differently than a top loader. Top loaders tend to using a washing motion that is good for stains but wear out your clothes fast. Front loaders typically use less water and wash more gently, but in some ways still do better than top loaders. Anyway, think about any other variables that go into the laundry equation. Consider the distance the machine is from your water heater. This machine will use MUCH less water to fill than your old one, and, you know how when you turn a faucet on hot it takes a minute for the hot water to actually get there? It's the same way with your machine. If there's a sink next your washer, you should always turn on the hot water on the faucet until it gets hot right before you start the machine. The same goes for dishwashers. If there's not a sink close you can easily turn up the temperature for all hot water on your water heater, although that will use more energy.
Consider what detergent you're using. If you're using high efficiency detergent (like Tide he) maybe you should switch to your old brand. If you're using your old brand of detergent, try getting a high efficiency detergent.

Yes! any kind of liquid soap is ok for your front loader. HE soaps are just a little better in the front loaders so yes you can still use your liquid soap.

Allergic to detergent for front loaders


I have always used regular Tide powder in mine and my kids use Tide liquid in it. You just need to use about half as much. My man is a motor head so he gets DIRTY and I have three teens so I wash a lot of very dirty clothes. My clothes get very clean and I have never purchased the "special" Detergent.

I have had my Duet for three years.

Can you use Oxyclean along with detergent in front loaders?


I use 2 Tablespoons of Liquid Detergent and a 1/2 to 3/4 scoop of Oxyclean and I have had good results in my Front Loader. Clothes come out very clean and there is no residue on the inside of my washer.
