You shouldn't use it.
High-efficiency front or top-loading washers are designed for low water level and a tumbling washing action. HE detergents are low sudsing and specially formulated to provide clean washloads in these energy-saving washers.
Use of any other kind of detergent in a high efficiency washer, not only can confuse your washer cycle but prevent it from washing or rinsing properly. HE detergents are comparable in price to other detergents; look for the symbol and ensure you are using the correct detergent for your high-efficiency washer.
