The efficiency of your washing machine depends greatly on the type of detergent you use for washing. There are different types of washing machine available in market today: top loading, front loading, automatic, semi-automatic etc. These different types of washing machine work differently and therefore require different types of detergent. Today most modern washing machine manufacturers are trying to improve the washing technology to use less water and energy. A top load washing machine has an agitator in the drum and so it needs more water for washing and has a longer washing cycle. A front load on other hand has no agitator and works on tumble action. A front load requires less water and less detergent for washing and has a shorter cycle. Due to this difference in washing mechanism, there are different detergents for front-load and top-load washing machine.
The main difference between the top loader and front loader detergent is the suds or lather formula in the detergent. Since a front loading washing machine uses less water, it requires a high efficiency (HE) low suds formula detergent. The low suds formula of the HE detergents produces less lather and removes all the dirt and soap residue with less water.

The conventional laundry detergent used for a top load washing machine produces more suds or lather. Since a top loader uses more water per wash, the amount of suds or lather produced is easily rinsed away. But this large amount of lather cannot be rinsed in a front loading washing machines that use less water. If you use a conventional detergent in your front-load washer, the soap may leave a residue on the clothing, which can make them appear dingy. The buildup of soap residue inside the washing machine may also interfere with its operation.

You should always use the type of detergent recommended by the manufacturers of the washing machine. Also be careful about the quantity of detergent you use in every wash as excess detergent will not only damage your cloth but will also result in longer washing cycles and eventually higher electricity cost.
