Pour detergent in the dispenser or, if there isn’t one, directly into the tub before adding clothes. Always follow the instructions on the packaging when measuring. If your washer is High-Efficiency (HE), only use HE detergent. Learn more about HE detergent with this quick guide.
What is an automatic detergent dispenser?
The auto dispenser conveniently dispenses detergent and fabric softener automatically during wash cycles, but you need to remember to put the additives in the detergent drawer first! Note that the auto dispenser only works with liquid detergent and liquid fabric softener.
Do you just pour laundry detergent into a top loading washing machine?
It all depends. If you have an HE front-loading washer, it should have a special compartment in which to pour the detergent. If you have a regular top-loading machine, it’s best to fill your washer with water first, then add your detergent, then add your clothes.
