Hi, welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you! There should not be an excessive amount of soapy suds, especially if using HE detergent. The HE detergent is specifically made to be low sudsing specifically for front loading and high efficiency top loading machines. Have you recently switched detergents?

Colder water temperatures can affect sudsing, too. Does it suds more if hot water is used?
