I have a HE washing machine. I am understanding that others are using borax in the machines. Are they putting the borax into the machine with the load of clothing?

I don't have the same brand washing machine as you. However, borax goes into the wash cycle with the clothes and the detergent. I would start the water running and add the detergent and borax before I added the clothing, if I were you. Somehow that seems to work better.
I have a kenmore machine and I add 1/3 cup borateem with the liquid detergent in the little cup provided for the detergent. I have done it this way for a couple years. No problems and the rubber liner is never smelly like some get.

What are the benefits of using borax for laundry?

For those wanting to know what borax is: wisegeek.com (08/16/2009)
It is a natural water softener for those of us who have hard water, but no water softener. Clothes last longer, get cleaner, and smell fresher. (08/19/2009)
Put a tablespoon of Borax in your laundry and you can cut your soap by more than half. It cleans, brightens, and removes odors and saves on laundry detergent.
Just be careful using borax on colored clothes. It will lighten your laundry. (03/18/2007)
