Can I use ammonia in my new high efficiency Kenmore washer?

I recently purchased a Sears Kenmore Top-Loading High Efficiency Low-Water Washer, Model 2130. Can I add 1 cup of ammonia to my washer? If so, should I add it with the detergent or pour it in the liquid bleach dispenser? Ammonia is great for removing odors from towels and I also like to use it with some of my husband's work shirts that go in the washer stain free but come out with grease like stains. Thanks.

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

Never mix Bleach with Ammonia. It will make a deadly chlorine gas.

Mixing bleach and ammonia is extremely dangerous, since toxic vapors will be produced. Chlorine gas is released when ammonia and bleach are mixed together.

You can use Ammonia but follow the instructions and warning label attached to the Ammonia container.
