Detergent Concentration Information - All-In-One Washer Dryer

Possible Solutions

Detergent Concentration

Today’s liquid HE detergents are concentrated. Most brands of concentrated HE detergent will show the level of concentration on the bottle.

However, if the detergent bottle does not give the concentration, it can be easily calculated. Just divide the package size in fluid ounces by the number of loads. Then refer to the chart below to find the concentration.

Set the concentration level setting on the washer/dryer by using the Tools button. Tap which dispenser you are using, then select the concentration level based on the detergent that you are using. Follow the screen prompts.

If you do not get your desired cleaning results, set the concentration level to a lower concentration number. If you have excess suds, set the concentration level to a higher concentration number.

NOTE:  Concentration Level does not mean the dispenser will dispense that many doses of HE detergent; it means that the detergent you have purchased is that concentrated, and the dosage will actually be smaller for higher levels of concentration. I.E. the more concentrated the detergent, the "stronger' the cleaning power and the less water in the dosage. 

Concentration Number of ounces ÷ number of loads
2X 1.5–2.49 (44.4 ml–73.6 ml)
3X 0.9–1.49 (26.6 ml–44.1 ml)
4X 0.7–0.89 (20.7 ml–26.3 ml)
5X 0.5–0.69 (14.8 ml–20.4 ml)
6X 0.3–0.49 (8.9 ml–14.5 ml)

Which detergent should you use?

Whirlpool recommends using Swash™ Laundry Detergent. It is designed to work in both high-efficiency (HE) and non-HE washing machines. With an 8x concentrated formula, you’ll use about a quarter of the detergent you’d need with a traditional 2x concentration detergent. It may look like a small amount, but you’ll be amazed at its effectiveness.

From our Precision Pour Cap to our ultra-concentrated formula, Swash® delivers the results you want in a compact, intelligent bottle design.
