How to Remove Excess Detergent

What happens if you don’t use HE detergent in your HE washer?
Only HE laundry detergent should be used in an HE washer because it is a low-sudsing specially formulated detergent. Using a non-he laundry detergent in an HE washer can create a sudsing problem that can cause detergent bubbles to fill the washer tub and start to overflow from the detergent drawer.
