This kit is a waste of money, buy the tablets alone. The tablets seem to work okay and cut the smell, but the "Grit Grabbers" that increase the cost are absolutely nothing but wet wipes. You get the same cleaning power with a paper towel.

Our front opening washer is wonderful - but over time, towels and sheets began to come out with a musty oder. The reason was a dirty ruber gasket. Since using the Affresh product that smell has gone away completely. Everytime I use it (monthly) it comes away with a layer of dirt that you would normally not even know exists. I strongly recommend this product for anyone with a front load washer!

much to my surprise this product does actually work. It was a shot in the dark that I bought it becuase my 1 year old HE washer STINKS! I ran two of the three tablets with success. I do think it is a little pricey for the product but aside from that I am very satisfied. I will be using this monthly to ensure the stink doesn't take over again!

If you own an HE front loader, you have to maintain them. Use this product at least every couple months, and leave your front door open overnight after use. This is a maintenance product more than a fix/solve all. If your machine gets to stink mode, well you waited too long, and didnt maintain your front loader. Do yourself a huge favor and USE this.

The HE front loading washer I inherited from my home's previous owner stank like pile of wet clothes left forgotten in a plastic bag. I carefully followed the manufacturer's instructions - cleaning the drum with disinfectant, wiping all of the nasty mold out from around the gasket, running a few cleaning cycles with hot water and bleach. And, while it helped somewhat - my laundry room no longer reeked of used clothing store - the odor persisted inside the washer.

The little Affresh cakes look and smell suspiciously like dishwasher tablets, albeit several times the price. I used all of the tablets, as indicated, and my machine smelled curiously like a chemical detergent mixed with hot plastic - not unlike my dishwasher. I was unsure if this new odor was disguising the mold stank, so I spent several minutes squatting in front of my washing machine, head fully inside the drum, sniffing carefully like sommelier for hints of mold. I let the machine dry out and returned for another smell, and it does indeed seem to be mold free.

Front loading washers are notorious in retaining water in the bottom rubber seal which in time can cause mold and mildew buildup. After thoroughly cleaning my washer I looked for a product that I can run for routine maintenance to eliminate odor buildup.

PROS:

It helped eliminate the stale odor in my washer and kept it fresh. No strong after scent like clorox.

Easy to use. Just drop the tablet inside and run your washer in normal cycle.

CONS:

The wipe cloth that came with the pack is not a necessity. I recommend purchasing just the Affresh tablets. The cloth is just a disinfectant wipe. I dry the inside of my washer with plain paper towel and follow it with some lysol disinfectant wipes.

We only do laundry once a week so I plan of using the tablets every 3 months. Recommended use is every month for heavy usage.

Though I wish I didn't have to use this product, the tablets do a great job of removing the smell from my washing machine. The wipes have worked really well to remove the "little black pieces" that kept floating through our laundry, so I am a staunch user as long as this washing machine lasts!

I'd like to start off by saying that I got this kit for $8.99 when at the time the package of just (3)tabs was going for $9.01. So i saved two cents and got 4 wet wipes.

By now most people realize one of the big drawbacks to front loading washers is the mold and smell that comes from the wet rubber seals. Manufacturers have addressed this problem and have been relentlessly trying to find effective solutions. Wipe the seal after each load, they say - keep the door open overnight, they say - but in reality that won't prevent the mold and smell, just delay it.

Enter Affresh. They've devised a little tab, about the size of a Zippo lighter, that dissolves in water and cleans those crevices of the rubber seal and the drum itself. We have a Maytag Maxima 6000 and it actually has a Clean Washer with Affresh cycle on it. So it's safe to say that big name manufactures give this product the thumbs up.

Using the tab is as easy and dropping it inside the drum(DO NOT put it in the dispenser), selecting the cycle and pushing start. If you don't have a Clean Washer cycle, the Normal cycle will work, but maybe just drop the Spin to Low or No Spin. If you're like me and are concerned about the tab banging around inside the drum as it dissolves, don't worry, I researched it and the stainless steel of the drum will not be damaged. After about 10 minutes of the 45 minute cycle the tab is gone and there's just a bunch a soapy water sloshing around inside getting into the seals and all over the window. Once done, I noticed the drum was visibly more shinier and the rubber was free of any debris. It also smelled fantastic.

With the cost of these machines, you need to maintain them - you can't just run it and wipe it lest you want smelly laundry and premature failure.
