openProduct Info


Tide Washing Machine Cleaner has been specifically designed to help remove and dissolve away odor causing residues that may build up in your washer over time – even from those areas you can’t see! Have you ever run a load a laundry and at the end, it just doesn’t smell clean & fresh? It could be coming from residues left behind in your washer. Washers today use less water, which can leave behind residues in machine –including areas you can’t see, e.g. back of the tub, hoses, drain, etc. These residues can lead to the build-up of malodor, which can be transferred to your laundry. Proper care for you machine, which includes running monthly clean-outs with Tide Washing Machine Cleaner to help remove these residues and keep them from causing laundry problems down the road.

Odor is unbearable

So disappointed. Even after 1 week + the odor has not gone away. It is so unpleasant I won't be using the remainder of the product.

Sweet Freshness

I love this product! When I use it each month there is NO nauseating smell of old wet molding clothes at all! Of course I wish my machine didn't have this problem but alas..it does. I will use this product until there is a washer that can be used without the stench that comes with this generation.

Did the trick, smell not as bad as others say

It loosed caked on gunk, a quick rinse cycle did the rest. There was a smell, in btwn fresh and chemical smell, but not unpleasant. After a rinse and leaving the top open overnight it wasn't as strong

Strong smell

After reading the reviews I thought I'd give peace of my mind. I live on well water with softener. The water that sits in the tub that doesn't drain fully starts to smell moldy/musty. Husband notice it more than I. So i use this every 6 months and it works well in my top loading washer. I do believe It has a strong smell, but also it takes away the musty smell in the clothes. I just wish it didn't cost so much.

YUCK! WHAT HAPPENED?!

I SO WISH I'd read the reviews prior to purchasing. As I write this review, I am washing anything & everything I can find in the house with hopes that I can get rid of the smell that is in the washing machine, which is permeating throughout the house since yesterday. For nearly $8.00 (for the 3-treatment pack), I will return the product and try a different brand. I LOVE TIDE, but NOT this product. The smell is SO OVERWHELMING; it nauseates me.

Clean has no smell!

I used this product and the washer and laundry room smell like perfume, a horrible perfume. My eyes water, have a mild headache from the smell. I hope I have not ruined washing machine less than one year old. I am now running the third "CLEAN cycle." This is absolutely awful. Clean has NO SMELL, just clean. Why does the manufacturer use such cheap tricks to possibly mask what may not be actually done? Horrible!

Terrrible smell, made me sick

The Tide washing machine cleaning packets are terrible and seems like an unsafe smell. It was so strong, I had to get my dogs out of the house open all windows on the main floor and put 3 other empty loads with detergent after and it is still bad. The house still smells after 3 hours. I'm not one to complain but this is bad. I use tide pods and regular detergent with no problems. I'm sorry but I don't recommend this product especially if you are sensitive to strong smell or not.

Wow! Results were immediate!

I'm sensitive to smells, so when my front loader stinks it really makes me crazy. Usually I ask the hubby to wash towels with bleach and that takes care of the problem for a couple of weeks. A couple times a year I also pull out all the trays and do a cleansing. That didn't seem to be providing the solution. I knew I wasn't getting all the ick out of my washer so I decided to try Tide Washing Machine Cleaner. I was shocked at how much stuff I could see being flushed out of my washer. I look forward to using it on a monthly basis so I don't have to worry about my clothing being stinky.

Pungent odor

Instead of being an "odor remover" this product overpowered my whole house with an extremely heavy perfume smell which will not go away. Had to open windows all day, and the laundry room still smells so strong I don't want to be in there. I've run the washer with baking soda, vinegar, borax, and bleach -4 washes so far and can't get rid of the smell. I don't know if I'll ever be able to wash clothes in this machine. The label should have warned about the perfume - for those who are sensitive to heavy odors, this is a disaster. So disappointed that P&G would make such a product.

I love the SMELL

I was searching for Tide soap that had the same scent as the washing machine cleaner. I ran across all of the negative reviews and could not believe it. I have it running as I am writing and have just finished my house work and think it smells wonderful. I have used it before and will continue every couple of months.

"Used to" Love it, now it is AWFUL!!!

What did you do to your washing machine cleaner? The scent has changed, and is AWFUL!! I bought Tide cleaner because of Tide's reputation and because of the scent. Last time I purchased the cleaner, the scent of it has changed, for the worse! I will NOT purchase this item again, I am going to find a new washing machine cleaner. So sorry Tide, but what did you do? Just got off the phone with Tide, and all they could do is say yes the scent was changed, and so sorry. Poor customer service!

Got Rid of the AWFUL smell

Let me first start off my saying that I purchased a house a few months ago and asked the homeowners to leave their washer and dryer however I almost got rid of them both when I I washed a load of clothes and smelled the washer the next day! It was a very foul smell even tho before I use it the first time I used another brands washer machine cleaner and contented to use that brand with no real results. I decided to give Tide a chance since I was not getting any results with the last company and BOY oh BOY did it make a difference the washer now smells fresh and clean. Thank you so much Tide for another great product that I will continue to buy.

I loved using this product until our last purchase. I loved the scent and the fact that I saw the washing machine was clearner following use. However, the scent has changed and, instead of having the great classic Tide scent, it smells more like bug spray...and a powerful one. Why did you change the product?

Kills odors when used prooerly.

This product saved me from throwing out my washer. My laundry was smelling horrible. I couldn't pinpoint the cause until I smelled my washing machine. It STUNK! I used this product one time by pouring it in the tub on hot water setting. It made my house smell like laundry for the night but killed the mildew smell. Thanks Tide!
