Greetings MOMMA2,

Typically it is recommended to use only HE (High Efficiency) in your front loading units. The difference between HE soaps and normal detergents is that they are low sudsing soaps. HE Machines need low sudsing detergents and if regular detergent is used, the excess suds could lead to washer problems. Unfortunately just using a smaller amount of regular detergent does not fix the issue. Only the use of HE detergent assures the proper performance of your unit.

Due to this, it is NOT recommended using Dreft in HE machines.
One recommendation out there is to look for 2x Ultra Tide HE Free, which is made without dyes or perfumes.

Thank you,

Dorothy

Yes you can but remember to only use 2 tablespoons of detergent.  It may not say it in the owner's manual but it is what the factory is telling us to relay to the customers.

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.

Grey spots on our white clothes after wash


do you use affresh to clean your front loader? deposits of soap and other such things can be stuck around the inside tub of your washer. try this porduct out it works great on all front loaders use hot water with the affresh pellet with no clothes and run the machine through a cycle this also helps with any stagnant water smells also have you cleaned out your pump lately. * note remeber to put the pellet on the inside of the machine not in the soap dispenser

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.

Laundry Detergent


this usually depends on the type and brand of detergent you use. for example if you use standard detergent and it takes 1 cup, then you use concentrated detergent and it takes 1/2 cup. you have to check the detergent container for proper amount to use. for most detergents it is around 3/4 to 1 cup of detergent.
Ps. dont forget to rate my answer please. Thanks.

Laundry detergent


Why do you want to use a special detergent??? Tide works fine! You just need to use about 1/4-1/2 what is used in the American machines. Now if you really want some exceptional laundry detergent like we use in Europe, buy Persil (google it).

What kind of baby detergent is safe to use with my front loader washing machine


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
