What do you use for dipes with a HE washer (top loader)?

I just bought new washer/dryer set and I'm crazy-happy about it! Sad, huh?
Anyways, I decided on a top loader since I've read about problems with front loaders getting dipes clean enough, and since the more water the better, I bought this huge thing in blue! http://www.sears.com/sr/javasr/produ...cemldffidflk.0

So since this is a HE washer, what detergent should I use? I just read up on the pinstripes and polkadots detergent review chart, but it doesn't have any HE detergents. I've been using Sun powder, but now I'm leaning towards Charlie's Soap since it does say that it's fine for HE washers. But I'd prefer to use something that I can go and pick up at a store.

Any advise out there? They're delivering the set on Monday, so I want to be ready to wash asap!

Thanks!
Wendy

I just ordered that set, too!! Whew, PM me when you find out what works. Mine won't be here until Oct. 4 (we ordered the older style dryer to save a few bucks and we have to wait on it).

I think the main thing, and i may be wrong, is just to use less detergent if you don't use a HE detergent.
