Tide Washing Machine Cleaner
IT WORKS!!

WOW ! This is NOT a gimmick...it really works!!! In all my years, I have never had a problem with washing machine odor until recently. It was bad!! I thought it was coming from behind my utility walls...I tried all kinds of cleaning products to clean out my washing machine. Finally I heard about Tide's Washing Machine Cleaner...the first time I used it...the odor was 90% gone,,WOW! I used it the follow week...and I use it every month now and guess what?...the odor has completely gone!!!!!!! Also my utility room has a real nice fresh smell each time I use this product. 100% Great!!

don't buy

this product is terrible. Very little of it dissolved and it clogged up the tube that feeds the detergent. What little bit did go through left a terrible smell. I was using it because I thought it wouldn't hurt to clean parts of the washer that you don't see. I have a front load washer. I wouldn't buy this product ever again! BEWARE!!!!!!!!!!!

A GREAT PRODUCT

THIS IS GREAT FOR CLEANING YOUR "HE" WASHER! THE FIRST TIME I USED THE PRODUCT, IT DID NOT DISOLVE. I REVIEWED THE WEBSITE AND DISCOVERED I HAD FORGOTTEN TO MOVE THE GAGE ON MY WASHER FROM LIQUID TO POWDER. AFTER THAT, I HAVE USED IT SEVERAL TIMES AND IT WORKS GREAT!

Awesome Product!

My machine had started to smell musty, even after the cleaning recommended by the manufacturer. This was making my clothes smell not so clean. UGH! I used this product one time and my machine and my clothes smelled wonderful. I will be using this at least once a month to keep my machine smelling nice.

Wouldn't Disolve

I have a front loading LG washer and I wanted a product that would get rid of the musty smell. I followed the instructions on the box but it did not disolve. It just made a mess and made no difference to the smell in the machine.

All of it didn't dissolve

I have a front load HE Maytag and bought a box of 3 packages. Each time I used it, a good size clump was still left in the dispenser even though I used the hottest water possible. What did dissolve helped and the washer smelled fresh again but I can't help but wonder if it might be better to just throw it in the wash tub instead. Can I do THAT?

Great Product!

I recently tried the Tiede Washing Machine Cleaner for my HE washer. The manufacturer advised to leave the door open to allow it to air, but I found if I use this once a month it keeps my washer smelling absolutely fresh and wonderful!! This is a great product and I highly recommend it to anyone with an HE washer.

GREAT PRODUCT!

We were unable to get the odor out of our washer after washing some cleaning rags. The odor permeated all our laundry. We tried bleach, vinegar, and multiple washings to get rid of the odor to no avail. The machine cleaner worked after just one packet! I would highly recommend this product to anyone facing the same issues we did.

Does not work

I purchased this product because visible residue exists in my washer tub and used it as directed. The product dissolved and there was no apparent problem except the residue is exactly as it was before using 1 pouch per week for 3 consecutive weeks. I will never waste money on this product again.

Disappointing

Same as the other posted.....I purchased the front loader washer & dryer about 6 months ago. was informed about the need to "clean the washer from time to time". Researched what to buy....Although I am not a Tide user, this product seemed to be the best for the situation. I have used it twice & did not work either time. I, too, had the "clumping" both times (I did follow the instructions both times). The washer smells much worse----smells like very dirty, wet socks!! The odor had (I thought) somewhat subsided, but did not go away after the first time, but with in 2 weeks the odor was back & worse. It did the same thing this time, but it didn't help the odor at all---it is much worse today & I used the packet Friday! Please note--we never have soiled or stinky laundry, so I am puzzled as to why the odor? I do have a message to the washer manufacter, as well. Any suggestions? Another thing, I used a top loader washer (same one for 7 years) b4 buying the front load & a top load for 14 years b4 that---I NEVER once had odor in my washer! A good note: I did witness several times, my daughter using the Tide stain release in her laundry, just poured it in with the loads (her husband does lawn maint/service, you can imagine his blue jeans at the end of the day!) & the clothes came out absolutely clean (no spotting each stain, no scrubbing each stain, just adding it to the laundry), so I was quite impressed with that!! I, too, agree it is too expensive for no results. Thank-you for listening!

It's ok but too expensive

This product does a decent job but I am not sure that it is worth the $8 or $9 bucks that you have to pay for it. It does remove that old water smell but it doesn't make it smell like a new washer. Thankfully I didn't have that clumping issue. The times that I have used it, it dissolved just fine. If it kept that odor out for like 3 or 4 months then it would be worth the price. I do love Tide products but this one just needs a little work on the overall results/price.

I THOUGHT THE PURPOSE WAS TO CLEAN THE MACHINE AND HAVE IT SMELL GREAT. ANOTHER THING I NOTICED IS THAT TH GLASS ON THE DOOR IS NOW CLOUDY AS BEFORE I DIDNT HAVE THAT ISSUE.

Awful Odor

I was excited to use this product and followed the directions exactly. I did not have any problems with clumping as I now see after reading reviews that many people have had. My problem with this product is that it made my machine smell worse than it did before I used the product!!! It really didn't even smell before, I just thought I would use as maintenance so that my machine would not begin to smell because I know that is a common problem with front loaders. Now, there is a terrible musty smell that fills the entire laundry room and it hits you like a ton of bricks as soon as I open door! Now I have to try to figure out how to get rid of that smell. I wish I could give this product a zero out of five stars (1 star was my lowest option). I have two small children (ages 1 & 2) so, if I am taking the time to write a review you know it is bad!!!! Do not use!

Tide Washing Machine Cleaner
Very Upset with this product

I saw the advertisement on TV and thought this would be the perfect product since I have a front loader and many of my friends have a problem with the mildew smell. My machine is basically fine without a smell but when I read the instructions that said you can just use it once a month as maintenance, I decided to give it a try. I followed the instructions, normal wash, hot water and the machine seemed fresh afterwards. The next day when I decided to wash some clothes, I opened the tray where you put detergent and the TIDE powder was still in there but now it was a solid rock of undissolved powder. I had to take apart the whole tray, scrape it out, thoroughly clean far in to the tray where its not easy to get to and hoped that it didn't clump up somewhere inside that I can't reach. I then had to run an empty load, sanitary cycle, extra rinse and hope that cleared it all out. I am now doing my load of clothes and hoping that it doesn't come out with marks or some problem from this product. I had such high hopes and I will never use this product again nor will I ever recommend it. Just the opposite. By the way, my machine is only 2 years old so it isn't the machine's problem. It works just fine.

Needful instructions

I've been having terrible smell on my laundry for a while. Was very glad to see your product at store. Had the same "clumping" experience others have had, so came to this review site and found lots of good suggestions.Thanks! Second experience, after following suggestions was much better. One question to Tide: Since this review site shows you've had complaints about the clumping problem since at least 2009, why haven't you added a little paper insert to your package with more careful directions??? It seems that would be far less costly than all this bad publicity.

Clogged my dispenser

This product is too expensive and did not do a very good job! After wasting 45 minutes and lots of hot water,the next day my dispenser was clogged with leftover soap. IF, I use the remaining two pouches of cleaner, I will only use half of the powder per cycle as my "common sense" was telling me from the start. As a bit of advice: I've made a habit of always drying-out/drying-off the dryer door and rubber threshold of the door frame after every use. And I usually keep the door open a few inches between wash days.

Great product, But.......

Im allergic to the smells that are in laundry soap/softener/sryer sheets. I didnt even think when I bought the product as it is a cleaner. When I opened it to put it in my machine, it had the smell of the normal Tide soap, but still was thinking, okay, this is a cleaner, its not going on my clothes, so I should be fine. Well, nope, not fine. I loved that it cleaned my machine very well, but the next few loads I washed ended up with the left over smell from the cleaner, and you guessed it, sinus infection and drained feeling again. I ended up giving the other two pouches to my mom to use for her washer. I really wish that Tide could make this same product in a Free version like the laundry soap is. If there was, I would definetly be buying it again, but will have to hold off for now.

Really works!

I work as a Housekeeper and 'inherited' a 2 yr. old top of the line washing machine. Unfortunately, the person who worked there before me never really allowed it to dry out well between days of using. It got mildew on the front gaskets and left a slightly musty odor on the newly washed clothes. Used Tide Washing Machine Cleaner when I found it in the grocery store. Did a fantastic job. The mildew stains have faded and the smell of the clothes is 'clean'. Thanks so much for this product!

Our 1 year old front load washing machine had a very musty odor that I thought would force us to incur hefty repair bills to replace the gaskets. One packet of the washing machine cleaner elminated 95% of the ordor! I'm sold and will use this product once per month as directed.

Please help, clogged dispenser

I bought this product to clean my front loading washing machine, and found that all it did was clog the soap dispenser tray. I followed the directions on the box to the letter and the product clumped in the dispenser tray. I have seen that many customers have had this issue. My question is " How do I get my dispenser unclogged?!?!" So far, this product has only ruined my washing machine leaving a nice fragrance behind. I will never buy again. If its a known issue that the liquid dispenser needs to be removed before using, PUT IT ON THE BOX!!!

Moldy Smells Gone

My front loading washer had a mold smell and would leave it on the clothes. Ew! I was very skeptical of this product when I saw it on the commerical. I bought it and ran it once through my washer thing I'd have to do it weekly to get rid of the smell. It got rid of mold smell in one treatment. I left the door open overnight to get rid of the strong cleaning smell but if that's all I have to do to avoid mold. I can live with that. I STRONGLY recommand this. It works!

SATISFACTION

I had purchased the product after an awful smell coming from my top loading machine. I was a bit skeptical when reading some of the reviews in regards to the scent product leaves behind. NOT only was there NO scent, but my machine is clean. Turns out, the smell was some bad meat that had fallen on the side of the machine.

Can not get bold smell out of washer and clothes

I used this product for the first time in our front load washing machine and I must say it leaves a very bold cleanser smell. I ran an extra empty cycle just to make sure it all got dissolved (which I believe it did) and after 3 more loads the washer still smells like a cleanser and so do my clothes. My only concern is I wash baby clothes and I need to know if this is a problem?

Smells Great!

I was very skeptical of this product but I was desperate for a cure to my musty smelling washer. I have an older top load washer and the musty smell was overtaking my laundry room. I tried bleach, vinegar, and baking soda with no success. At my wits end, I decided this product was worth a try. I am so glad I did! The smell is so clean and wonderful. My only hope is that the smell is not just masking the musty odor. I hope it worked to actually clean the washer. I would recommend it. Believe me, it smells 10x better than musty, dirty laundry!

Strong Odor & Bleached Clothes

I bought this product because my washer had a bad odor coming from it. So I followed to directions on the box and ran my washer as directed. The fragrance was rather strong but did get better after several loads of laundry. BUT after following directions, I proceeded to do a normal load of laundry. I ran a load of baby clothes and when the machine was done I went to put clothes in dryer and to my dismay the clothes were discolored, as if bleached. My daughters favorite pink clothes are now a dullish pink/grey. :O(. I didn't add bleach to the load, so the only thing I can think is the cleaner must of still been in washer and bleached clothes. Was I suppose to run washer several times before washing a load of laundry?

Love It

I absolutely love this product. It really helps and I am sure those who found it didn't help must have had a severe odor problem and just needed to use more x until resolved. I love the way it smells so clean and sanitized! My only question is ..if you have a "clean washer" option on your washer that says "bleach only" next to it, do you use this option or normal cycle with HOT?

Breath of Fresh Air!

I have a really old washer that smelled funny. I bought this product and it worked! I don't get grossed out smelling my washer any more! Honestly, I put it in and turned the cycle to soak, then I forgot about turning it back on until the next morning, so it did soak longer than the box said to, but it worked for my really old machine! I also ran an extra empty cycle to make sure all of the product got out before I washed any clothes. Thank you so much!

Tried this product on my front loader exactly per instructions. Just used my 3rd package as instructed. The smell after use is actually worse for 2 days than the original smell I am trying to get rid of. I consider it a waste of my $$ and have looked on the I'net for any solutions.
