What Type Of Detergent Should I Use In The Samsung Top Load Washing Machine?

Last Update Date : Apr 12. 2018

Type of Detergent

When deciding what type of detergent to use, you should observe the following:

HE Detergent

The washing machine is designed to use high efficiency (HE) detergents. Regular detergent is not recommended. Use HE detergents only.

NOTE: HE detergents will have the HE logo displayed on the label: 

Why HE?

• High efficiency detergents contain suds suppressors that reduce or eliminate suds.

 

• When fewer suds are produced, the load tumbles more efficiently and cleaning results are maximized. 

Liquid or Powder Detergent

Important: You can use any kind of laundry detergent as long as the label HE is present of the product. If the label HE is present then you can use the product with your Samsung washer. Even if you can use HE PODS with your washing machine, we don’t recommend their usage for safety and performance issues. You can learn more about safety issues related to detergents pods by clicking here. Again, this is a recommendation, not an obligation. Pods must be placed directly in the drum and NEVER in a dispenser drawer.

Customers can use either liquid or powder detergent. The detergent compartment accepts both.
