Product Description

Affresh Washer Cleaner removes and prevents odor-causing residue that can occur in all brands of HE washers. While bleach only kills odor-causing bacteria leaving behind the detergent residue, Affresh Washer Cleaner uses surfactant chemistry to remove the root problem. Affresh cleaner is a formulated, slow-dissolve, foaming tablet that gets under residue, breaks it up, and washes it away leaving the washer smelling fresh and clean. Simply place one tablet in the wash basket (without clothes) and run a Normal Cycle (hot option) or Clean Washer Cycle. Affresh brand is safe on septic tanks, and safe for all washer components. Package includes three tablets.

The only place I have been able to find this product is at Home Depot and buying it on line will save me time and gas getting to the store.

I purchased this product for my front-loading washer; even though I keep the door wide open when not in use, after a year the washer had developed a mildewy smell that transferred to the clean laundry. I tried using Affresh three times, and this product does not work! My washing machine actually smelled WORSE after using it! I finally poured about a cup bleach into the drum of the machine and filled the bleach dispenser tray full in order to get rid of the smell. The bleach worked fairly well but not completely. I don't like to use bleach in my machine because it is corrosive to metal (our drum is stainless steal) and can break down the rubber in the gasket and seals. I finally purchased a box of Borax for a few dollars at the grocery store. Borax is not corrosive and does not damage clothing fibers. In addition to absorbing odor, it is a natural fungicide and kills the mildew and mold that caused the odor in the washer. I sprinkled a half cup of Borax on top of a load of towels and then put the normal amount of detergent in the tray and ran a normal wash cycle. Presto--the smell is gone! My washing machine smells great, and my dishcloths and towels no longer develop a funky odor after using them. I plan to use Borax regularly to keep my laundry and washing machine smelling fresh. It's not a very glamorous solution, but it's cheap and works great! Way better than wasting my money on pricey Affresh tablets that don't help.

These tablets do work very well. Others who have not had any luck with them may have the same problem I had originally before I was told about this product by my repairman. Since I have an extended service policy on my set, I called to have the smell checked out. The service tech. opened the front of the washer and found several baby socks stuck in the drain trap. Always wondered where those disappeared to. Any small items must be washed in a net-bag to keep them from slipping between the barrel and the gasket at the front of the barrel (vibrating during cycles can allow small items to be squeezed through). The socks smelled horrible! If this is the reason for the smell, then bleach would be a temporary cure.

My front loading HE washer started to smell badly so I tried this product. I repeated the application three times in a row. After the third time the washer still smelled as if I hadn't done anything. I then tried a cup of clorex bleach and that had a minimal effect. Reading another review I started to put a quarter cup of twenty mule team borax in with each load and cut the HE liquid detergent in half. After about thirty loads the smell was completely gone. So now every load has a quarter cup of Borax and half the recommended detergent which actually saves money. I don't mix them in the detergent dispenser, the liquid goes in there and I just throw the Borax in with the load.

This worked great the first time I used it on our top-loader and I've been using it for a couple of years and it gets the job done.

Not sure about front-loaders and why this didn't work for other people.
Obviously if your washer still stinks after using one of these tablets there's a deeper problem and you might want to call a technician.

Although the actual tablet smells nice I find that the washer doesn't smell like that after using it. It simply takes away the bad smell and the washer just smells clean. This is quite convenient as I wouldn't want the clothes to smell like affresh.

Overall it's a great product for top-loaders without other problems.

This is the only TRUE Washing Machine Cleaner and the reason is actually much more simple than you might think!

Ever wonder why Affresh opted to make their cleaner in the form what looks like a urinal cake, or what the difference is between "Sanitary" and "Tub Clean" cycles? Well I did, and I'm passing along the answers:

Tide's powder washing machine cleaner can, by their own directions, should be dumped in the "Detergent" dispenser and used only a "normal" cycle instead of using your "Tub Clean." This means that the water will drain and refill only about 1/2 the number of times that it would using the "Tub Clean" cycle and will not be nearly as hot which will result in "cleaning" your washing machine in the same dirt/filth/grime that is making the very smell that you are trying to eliminate! It would be like taking a bath and then saving the bath water for the next day (sounds gross, but if you don't believe me then call your washing machine's manufacture and ask them about the difference between the "Normal" cycle and the "Tub Clean" cycle)...

Clorox's liquid washing machine cleaner states that it should be placed in the "Bleach" dispenser and used with the "Tub Clean" cycle. If you followed my analogy above, you should be able to understand that this means Clorox's cleaning solution will only run during ONE of the many drain/refill cycles during the "Tub Clean."

Simply put,
*The only way for a cleaning solution to have an effect throughout the entire "Tub Clean" cycle is for it to be slow dissolving.
*You cannot get the water any hotter than it is during the "Tub Clean" cycle (not even in "Sanitary"), and you cannot force the washer to drain/refill any more frequently than it does during the "Tub Clean" cycle.
*You CAN, however, have one easy solution that will maximize the benefits of the "Tub Clean" cycle, and that's by using Affresh.
