Can you use tide pods in an HE washer.., in my washing machine I do not put the detergent on top of the clothes
You can use tide pods in a HE washer. They are a detergent, stain fighter as well as a brightener thus giving your clothes a better look. This detergent is specially formulated for high efficiency washers.
I would be careful using the tide pods in a front loading washer. My water pump was fried because the undissolved pods got wrapped around the inside cam shaft of the pump
