HE washer

Energy Savings At-A-Glance

  • HE washers use less water than traditional washers — in fact, they only use from 20% to 66% of the water used by traditional agitator washers.
  • Energy use can be as little as 20 to 50 percent of the energy used by traditional agitator washers because there’s much less water to heat.
  • These savings translate directly to long-term cost savings for consumers — as well as significant long-term environmental benefits.

HE Detergents – The Only Choice for your HE Washer

Detergents formulated for HE washers work with energy-saving technology to provide the best possible cleaning in
only 20% to 66% the amount of water used in traditional washers.

Use HE detergents to:

  • Get the maximum cleaning performance that HE detergents and washers can deliver.
  • Achieve energy and water savings.
  • Keep your HE washer in top working condition.

HE Laundry Detergents

  • Most HE washers have detergent dispensers.
  • Follow the washer manufacturer’s use and care guide for proper use of the detergent dispenser.
  • If there is no dispenser, follow the washer’s use and care guide.
  • Follow the detergent manufacturer’s instructions to determine the correct amount of detergent to use.
  • Do not mix powder and liquid detergents in the same dispenser compartment at the same time. Mixing powders and liquids together may cause “caking” or clogging in the dispenser.

Laundry Additives

Rinse-added Fabric Softeners

  • Add fabric softener to the fabric softener dispenser so it gets dispensed at the right time. Follow the washer manufacturer’s use and care guide for proper use of the dispenser.
  • Follow the instructions on the fabric softener package to determine the correct amount to use.
  • Do not use other softener dispensing agents in your HE washer, unless your washing machine’s use and care guide recommends them.
