Using vinegar in the Kenmore 4027 Front Load washer

I have hard water and iron in my water (well water) and as a result my clothes come out dingy. I have found thru trial & error that adding oxy-clean and vinegar to my detergent will prevent and also remove the brown dingy tint. With my new front load washer, I can no longer dump in the detergent, oxy-clean & vinegar like I did in my old top load washer. The detergent and oxy-clean are both powder but the vinegar is liquid. How can I get all 3 into the wash cycle? Should I switch to liquid detergent and oxy-clean to combine with the vinegar in the dispenser? Can I continue to use the powder detergent & oxy-clean and put the vinegar in the bleach dispenser? I never use chlorine bleach because it binds to the iron in the water and actually enhances the brown spots on the clothes. Any advice?
