Hello, it does not. Front load washers work by filling the bottom of the inner and outer tub with a small amount of water and using the rotation of the tub and gravity to move the clothes through the water. The rotation action is similar to the tumbling action found in a clothes dryer. The side paddles on the inside drum lift the clothes and move them in and out of the water. This provides the mechanical action (scrubbing) needed to remove soil from fabric.
This type of mechanical wash action does not require that the clothes be surrounded by water at all times, which is why front load washers use so much less water than a standard top loader.
And, of course, with less water you should use less detergent and one without lots of bubbles to prevent over-sudsing and residue left in clothes. ^AC
