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.

    Make sure to only use liquid soap. Powder ruins the bearings in the washer.

Do you put detergent in the frigidaire affinity front loader clean washer cycle?


Good Afternoon Jodi,

I understand that you are wondering if you put detergent in your Frigidaire Affinity washer for the clean cycle. You do not put detergent in. You will want to take the detergent cup out and put a cup of bleach in there when you run the clean cycle. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your washer status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

I have an ariston awd 121 front loader washer dryer. What kind of soap does it call for? Can it be the powder? Does it have to be liquid? Does it have to be a certain brand/type?


To my knowledge all front loading washers require low sudsing high efficiency (he) detergent and these only come in liquid. A powdered detergent could probably be used, but I'd try a 1/4 of the recommended amount for a normal load first. Also it is not recommended. Regular liquid detergent can also probably be used but i'd start with 1/2 the the amount for a normal load. If you don't use the recommended "he detergents" expect occasional oversudsing problems and possibly even early drain pump death. Hope this helps.
Here is the owner's manual for your machine:

Affinity ATF7000E Front Load Washer: where do i find what efo means on my affinity wash...


Frigidaire, Zanussi, AEG, & More....

EFO = Filter Blocked (low flow) and it is accessible from the bottom front of the machine.

1. there is a blockage in the filter or drain hose.takes too long to drain out.
2. over dosing of powder or liquid. again can cause an air lock in the pump which slows the drain pump down.

Check the filter and drain hose and test again. this fault will only come up at the end of a cycle.
You do not need to reset the machine to get rid of the fault code as this is automatically deleted.

Run an empty load with no detergent in an attempt to get rid of the code.

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!!

Odor after washing clothes


Front loaders are known for building up mold and the smell.
It’s caused by using liquid detergent which is made from animal fat. Use powder. And use the minimum amount.
It’s caused by using fabric softener. Dilute it 50/50 with water.
It’s caused by the water remaining in the tub between washes. Leave the door open to allow it to dry. .

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.

Powder vs. liquid laundry detergent


I was searching the net looking for the same answer - have just bought an LG front loader but wasn't certain I should be using liquid detergent - my manual refers to powder without telling you specifically to use it only. Look at the answers to the question after yours on the Fixya website "LG washer has awful mildew odour" or something similar. Solution 3 by Tresilla convinced me I should use powder! Also, the salesman who sold me the machine recommended powder because, quote, " gentler on clothes and more efficient ..." - he didn't mention the possibility of a later mildew odour which is apparently generic to front loaders!
