It did the job. It got rid of the funky smell in my front loader and left it fresh and clean. I plan to continue to use it.
As per owners manual I do use this regularly. If not those Funky odors arise. Like when Ur spouse leaves a load of wet/dirty clothes in the washer overnight (or worst yet for a weekend!). But it also takes away the laundry powders and fabric softener build up off the washer parts.. My problem is WHY ISN'T THIS MORE READILY AVAILABLE??? With the surge of front loaders and or High efficiency appliances this should be everywhere laundry supplies are sold... not having to go on-line and search for it. It is a tad expensive for all that is but seems if it prolongs the life of my washer in the long run it is worth it.
It refreshed my washer and took away the nasty smell coming from it. I have only used 1 packet so far and it did the trick.
Works well in my washing machine. My washing machine requires this product or one similar for maintaining the machine. It is hard to find in the stores.
My new washer is the high efficiency front loader which will get a musky smell after a while. The smell also makes the clothing washed smell the same way. I did a little research- and ordered the Tide Laundry Washing Machine Cleaner 3 Ct. I opened the top of my machine where detergents/softners/bleach are dispensed and took out all of the little compartments. I opened one pouch of the Tide Laundry Machine Cleaner and poured the entire contents in. I followed the directions for time settings and hit the power button, walked away and within an hour or so the wash cycle was finished and all the smell was gone. What was left was a nice soft clean smell. I do not know what people on here are saying when they talk about strong odors permeating throughout their house after use. I did not experience that at all.
As a Consumer Advocate reviewing a lot of products-I do not have a lot of time to write useless reviews-this product is excellent. This product gets the job done and put a happy smile on my face. What more can a consumer ask for?
We have a 29 year old Maytag top load washing machine that, apparently, got some buildup over the years and was definitely STINKY. The smell was also getting into the laundry . . . Eeeewwwww! After treating the washer with this product as directed, the smell is completely gone and the clothes are fresh again. I teated the washer by setting it for HOT and full load each time, stopped it after 5 minutes of the wash cycle, and let it soak for 4 hours each time. Good job TIDE ! My wife was ready to buy a new washer which is not needed now. Phew ! ! ! That would have been BIG $$$$.
just as its intended use is for. It cleaned my washer really good and took away the bad smell that it would leave on the clothes.
For a long time, I was getting a light film of black gunk on the door gasket of my front-loading machine. The Tide washing machine cleaner really helped the problem -- a cleaner machine makes me feel that my clothes must be cleaner, too. The product works well, my only complaint is that it became impossible to find on store shelves. I was delighted to find it online at Walmart and hope they still carry it when I run out.
Purchased this product BECAUSE Walmart evidently does not stock AFFRESH which is the BEST product to clean a front loader washer. This Tide junk was so strong it burned my eyes and my nose and it smells horrible. I will be tossing the rest of this nasty stuff in the trash. HORRIBLE, HORRIBLE PRODUCT!!
One of the best products to come on the market in a long time!
I even used it to clean the buildup out of my dishwasher--if you do this be sure to run the dishwasher empty one more time--strong perfume smell if you don't.
My washer and my dishwasher got sparkly clean and the musty smell was gone! LOVE THIS STUFF!
This product does exactly what it was intended to do. cleans very well. gets rid of the gunk build up around the rim of the washer. washer smells fresh again after use. will definitely use this product again.
Before this, I never could get the smell out of my front loader and it really annoyed me, but now this does the trick. When it gets smelly, I just pop one in and that's it. It's not free (I wish!), but it does what nothing else ever has, so I'd say it's worth it.
I didn't realize how dirty my washing machine was until I tried this product. It works and smells great!
I had a terrible smell in my HE washing machine. This powder really did take the smell out like it said it would. I had to use it twice, but it worked.
Must have for all front load washers to get that musty smell out of the washer drum.
does a great job cleaning my front loader
I LOVE this product, not only does it clean the washing machine but it makes my laundry room smell terrific! Works great and really has helped my machine. My mom tried them as well and loved them too.
cleans washer and freshens smell in surrounding rooms!
