  • i have an HE washer and it's great! it means High Efficiency, and like someone else said it helps cut down the costs of water and energy. also, look for detergents only that say "He" on the front, some of them are written very small so you really have to look!

  • High Efficiency. That means uses less water, less soap and less electric to run

  • Make sure you use ONLY HE detergent or you will ruin your new washer. It is a different formula.
