Can I use the Downy Ball in my HE washer?

Q:

Can I use the Downy Ball in my HE washer?

A:

Please check the Use and Care Guide for your HE washing machine.  Most HE washers have a built-in, automatic fabric softener dispenser. Simply add the appropriate amount of the Downy liquid of your choice to the fabric-softener tray (often right next to the detergent tray) before each load.  Some newer HE washers do not have a softener dispenser but have been designed to allow the use of the Downy Ball.  The Use and Care Guide will indicate if the Downy Ball can be used with your HE washer.
