    I buy the special kind... I am scared that if I use regular it will force me to have a bubble party in my apartment!

    I have had my front loader for a little over 2 years. I think I may have bought the HE detergent once.

    We buy the HE stuff but that's just because my mom had a crappy washer for so long that she wants to keep this one nice and only uses exactly so.

    Just so you know, that with some brands using regular detergent vs. the HE voids your warranty!!!

    Funny you should ask. I was just at a home show and asked the person there about the detergent issue. He said you can use regular detergent as long as you use (his words) a very tiny amount because you don't want the suds at all.
