    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.

      Never knew this existed! It works perfectly- couldn't believe my washer smelled that good. It does a wonderful job and it does affect the smell of your clothing from the washer!

      I don't want to ever be without it......

            This is a Great Product, it is better than Affresh or Smelly Washer Cleaner. It is A Must Use for Front Loading HE Washers. It helps to remove the Sludge that builds up in the inner washer drum, where it is hard to see the Sludge build up. Use once a month for Maintenance and if washer already has Sludge build up it is recommended to use once a week for 3 weeks before going to once a month.

              After trying bleach, vinegar, etc. to try and get rid of the musty smell from my washing machine, I came across this product and to my surprise it not only got rid of the odor, it has lasted more than a month now. I will contiually use it once a month just for mainenence. It does have a strong perfumy scent to it, but it goes away in a day or so.

                  There was this HORRIBLE smell coming from the washer. We tried Bleach, Vinegar, Baking Soda. Nothing was working. Do lots of loads of dirty, and sometimes greasy clothes. Used this per directions on Front Loading machine (remember to change detergent setting to "Powder"). Worked really, really well. Smell is completely gone and washing machine seems to work better. Will continue to use on a regular basis.

                      I have a regular top loader washing machine that is on the small side for a family of four, so I tended to overload it. Apparently this can cause mold problems, and my washing machine started to smell like a dirty gym sock. I tried baking soda, bleach etc., and nothing got rid of the smell, until I purchased Tide Washing Machine Cleaner (and stopped overloading!). I used this product once a week for 3 weeks and it smells fresh again. I will keep using periodically to maintain the freshness.

                          I have used this product on an old standard washing machine that really needed cleaning - it worked great! I think it cleared out all the junk in the pipes, etc. The machine started rinsing the clothing better. I also used the product on and front-load machine and it worked great. It is very, very strong smelling - there are obviously a lot of chemicals in the product. I shut the door to the washing machine room while it is running the product through because the smell is so strong.
