If you have a problem with too many suds you sprinkle salt on the suds to reduce them. There is nothing special you need do if the soap rinses out during the wash and rinse.

I have a frontload he washer. My question is, will using a regular laundry detergent instead of he laundry detergent cause problems with the washer.

top load detergent will suds a lot and detergents made for from load washers wont suds very much at all, suds ina front loader will cause it to not spin or drain very well while i know it is more expensive you should always use detergents with the HE logo on the package

Can you use regulure detergent instead of the HD kind? The type of maytags I purchased are MEDE500VW and MHWE450WW washer

High Efficiency detergent is strongly recommended for front-load washers. This detergent is a "low sudsing" detergent as opposed to the regular detergent. If you use regular detergent is a front-load unit, you may have issues down the road!

Regular detergent causes the washer to make too much suds. Use HE detergent unless you want to fry your washer. You can use regular detergent as long as you use a small amount.

Non HE detergent in HE washer

i believe that vinegar reduces soap, maybe you can us some vinegar to clean out the soap from your washer. I have been wondering the same thing if I used my regular soap in my new washer. and figured if it got bad........i would defnitely use a good 1/4 cup of vinegar to strip out the soap.
