    The directions on the box are easy to follow. I have a top loading washing machine,so I pour 1 pouch into my tub,then run it w/out clothes in the "clean washer" setting.For a non-HE model you would use the "normal" cycle w/hot water.Front loading machines the pouch goes in the detergent dispenser drawer.I tried the other product,but it never got close to the results of Tide!Clothes were coming out smelling musty & old,tho I had cleaned the machine.Till I used the Tide.When an odor already exists,Tide instructs to use 1 pouch/wk for 3 wks.After the 1st use,the entire house smelled awesome,my clothes were better.The 2nd one-WOW,what a difference,same whole house awesomeness,& my clothes better & better!!By the 3rd use,now my clothes stay fresh in the drawers for weeks!So now I use it monthly....no Cons here

    Horrible product. My front loading washer didn't even smell bad because I always leave the door open a bit so it will dry out after use. But I thought there might be some residue build-up. Immediately after the cycle started with this product (following all directions to the letter), my house was filled with an overwhelming and horrible smell that almost immediately gave me a terrible headache. I opened all windows, turned on all ceiling fans & floor fans, but the smell is so pervasive that the laundry room and areas near it still smell 2 days later. Not to mention the washer--it still has the horrible "perfume" smell. I ran the machine through 12 complete cycles in an effort to get rid of the smell, without success. I then ran old towel through a cycle & found that the towel came out with the same awful "perfume" smell. I don't know if that old towel will ever be useable again. Today, I am trying running the machine using vinegar (on the 2nd try now) to try to rid it of the smell so I can use my machine again. Meantime, I have wasted so much water during a drought, in an effort to rid my machine of the smell. I emailed the company with my complaint & request for refund, but have not yet received a reply. This is probably the worst product I have ever tried.

      Comments about Tide Washing Machine Cleaner, 3 ea:

      I've used the Tide washing machine cleaner regularly since I got a front-loading machine a few years ago. It always had a strong scent but I found it relatively pleasant and it didn't affect the laundry. I just repurchased and this recent box has a terrible chemical scent, my house smelled for days and I can still smell it around the washing machine even though I've used it 10+ times since. Will be looking for some other brand.

              If this product had simply removed unwanted scents in my washer I would have liked it. The overpowering strong scent left behind affected my allergies and took too long to eliminate. If you have allergies, I would stay away from this product.

                Comments about Tide Washing Machine Cleaner, 3 ea:

                Like many reviewers, I found the overwhelming perfume smell to be very unpleasant. After using this product to clean my HE washer, the clothing even had that smell after I washed them in the machine. Plus, the machine itself smelled of the perfume for several wash loads. Why oh why don't they make this product unscented? Even just a fresh smell would have been better. However, on the plus side, it did clean my HE washer well. I switched to Affresh because it works well without that nasty smell.

                Like other reviews have mentioned, this product is extremely and overwhelmingly perfumed. I used this product yesterday afternoon and tonight the scent still lingers. It is hard to tell if the musty smell is actually gone or just disguised. I will say that the product was easy to use and that the mildew is mostly gone from the door gasket on my HE front loader. I would purchase this again ONLY if Tide comes up with an unscented version. In the meantime, I will try Affresh.

                  This was the abolutely worst smelling product I have ever used. I had to leave my house windows open even though it was 38 degrees outside. It still smells in the laundry room after 2 days. Yuck. It was also a lot messier to use than Affresh.

                    I had never used a washer cleaner before and am very happy with this one. Left the stainless steel drum sparkling and has a very nice clean smell. I'll use a couple of times a year to keep the front loading machine in good order.

                      This is a good product. I do wish that more than 3 cleaning packets came with it though. If you have never used a washing machine cleaner like me, you need to use 2-3 just to start with to help. Overall, good product and it serves its purpose. I will be repurchasing in the future.

                        Just as easy to use bleach in the machine and save the money on this expensive product that seems to do very little.

                          I have used this item at least once a month for a number of years. Bleach water does not remove everything and this item does shine up the stainless steel drum. I do not think there is a down side to this product as it is very easy to use.
