Can HE detergent be used in a regular machine?

I purchased some Trend HE for my front loader and am not too happy with it. I thought about giving it to my mom, who has a regular top loader. Can she use it? Thanks!

Yes, but a larger dose is usually needed due to non-HE machines, of course, taking more water.

I use Tide HE at out vacation home with a regular top loader. The house has a septic tank and a water filter. The water suds more there so I use the HE to keep the suds at a minimum.

Yes. I use HE detergents in my standard topload agitator washer all of the time with no problems.
