Can you use non-HE laundry soap in an HE washing machine?

Answer

Non-HE detergent should not be used in a high-efficiency washing machine, according to Maytag. The machines use less water than regular machines, and using regular soap in an HE machine can create water that is too sudsy to perform properly.

Using the incorrect detergent in an HE machine can result in several problems, including inadequate spinning, machine leakage, machine odor and soap residue left on clothes after washing, according to Maytag. Users who accidentally use the wrong detergent can stop the wash cycle, then restart the machine and allow it to run through two spin cycles to clear the excess suds.
