How do I dye clothing in my HE washer?

I need to dye a top black that was ruined with a candle dye spill. I don't have a clue how to do it using my front loading HE washer.

I would not recommend you use your HE washer to dye clothes.

The front load washer doesn't put an adequate amount of water in the tub to dilute the stain properly. Most directions for dyes assume you will be using a top load washer with a higher water level.

You can use a bucket or the sink to stain just one item. A commercial laundry mat would be a better solution than using your own HE washer.
