Our LG Front Load Washer Dryer Combo is still new, so we haven't had any odor buildup as of yet, and we want to keep it that way. The machine came with samples of this Tide Washing Machine Cleaner, which we used and liked a lot. But it's quite expensive, so we were on the lookout for alternatives.

We gave this Ahh-Some Washing Machine Bio Cleaner a try, but given all the foam it creates, it's clearly not intended for HE machines. This product is similar in name to Affresh High Efficiency Washer Cleaner, but the latter is manufactured by Whirlpool, and is still quite expensive.

We were at Target looking into our options when we happened to see this Clorox Washing Machine Cleaner. It was literally half the price of Affresh and Tide's washing machine cleaners, so we decided to give it a whirl. It's Clorox, after all, so surely it must be good.

Tide Powder vs Clorox Liquid

We really like both the Tide and Clorox washing machine cleaners. Both do a nice job, and we would use either one again. However, there are some differences between the two:

> Cost - The biggest difference between Tide and Clorox is the cost. Clorox is basically $1 per use, while this Tide costs about $2.50 per use; sometimes less depending where you shop. Either way, Target is consistently cheaper for both products.

worked as advertised. I read people washing their cloths WITH this product.. not sure I'd do that, but I ran one packet through my front load washing machine, then 2 rinse cycles to make sure no residue was left, wiped down all inside surfaces and smell is GONE!! After 3 months of trying everything from vinegar to bleach, this product did the trick.

My Samsung front loader washing machine is relatively new (now a year old). We have a small household (self & spouse) and generally wash lightly soiled items. I noticed a slight odor from the machine & a sour smell began starting to "infest" my towels (even my newest ones), despite the fact that I keep the door open after a load & empty the "drain" at the base of the machine more frequently than required. I found the odor issue bizarre and frustrating since I've been doing my own laundry for 10+ years... and assume that the only variable is the machine.

I thought this product was a little pricey (around 7.5 bucks or so at the local store); however, I think it has been very helpful (but also hard to find).

To help with my sour towel smell I have also started...

1. Adding color safe bleach to my towel loads.

2. I am drying my towels almost to the "fry/crispy state".. the "most dry" setting on my dryer.

I would follow the packaging and NOT use this stuff to wash your clothes... and I consider myself a little OCD when it comes to cleaning.

This cleaner has a really strong smell, so bad that we had to air the house once we ran the washing machine with it. The smell in our front-loader that we were trying to get rid of, was simply replaced with the stench of the TIDE cleaner. It was so strong that it was present in the next SIX loads of laundry, even a week later. Considering that we typically use TIDE fragrance-free detergent as some of us are sensitive to perfume, this was a horrible experience. What's the idea behind it? Hiding one smell with another? I can't tell if it cleaned the washing machine, but I can say that the smell before cleaning was more tolerable than after... Wish there was a "0" star rating.

Our front-loading Frigidaire has a large black deposit at the bottom of the door seal. We won't use chlorine bleach -- and I'm not sure even that would work. Other reviews said that the Tide product would help clear it up. The Tide box says it may take three applications over three weeks. The first one seems to have worked a bit so am hoping the moldy smell will finally go away after two more applications.

I wash everything on 'cold', so there is no opportunity to burn out any nasty growing things that accumulate in the seals and crevices. After six months, my Bosch high efficiency washer had definitely developed a funk. It hadn't gotten to the point of affecting the smell of my clothing, but it was definitely unpleasant to unload everything. One packet has cleared up the problem.

The cleaner did not stink up my 800sqft apartment, and did not stink up the clothing I washed immediately afterward (I use perfume-free detergent). Will happily use when it gets funky again in six months.

BACKGROUND
I am a proud first time home owner. My household came pre-furnished with appliances including Samsung front loading washer and dryer. both of which I never have used beforehand.

After several months I noticed a strong odor coming from the laundry room. After some searching I realized that the scent was coming from the front loading washing machine. I googled front loading washing machines and discovered this is a common occurrence. Unfortunately the preventive measures I discovered would be of no use, I needed something strong to help eliminate the smell and bacteria.

I decided to give Tide washing machine cleaner a try and I am glad I did.

USEAGE
I followed the directions that tide recommends to a "T." You want to run this product in an empty washer full cycle with hot water. For more sever cases of smell and bacteria, it is recommend you do a treatment once a week over several weeks. I had to do this last instruction to properly eliminate all the odor from my washing machine which I am very thankful for.

PREVENTIVE MEASURES
1) When your washing machine is not in use, leave the door open to dry out as much as possible
2) If using softener, switch to dryer based sheets instead of liquid softener
3) If you do a load with bleach, do the load last as the bleach kills bacteria
4) If you do not use bleach, purchase a bottle and run a cycle without clothes using hot water and one cup of bleach. Preform this routine once every few weeks to keep the bacteria at bay and from becoming a problem.
