I bought a used front load washer and it had already had the scent of mold when I picked them up. Then over the last year, it has progressively gotten worse. I leave the door open after each wash to help prevent that from happening. Then finally it was so bad that just opening the door would be unpleasant. I went online to do some research on how to get rid of the smell and I found this product - I was skeptical. Could a tablet truly remove a problem that is years in the making? The instructions said if the smell was present to run it 3 times back-to-back, so I did. For the most part the smell is gone! I gave it 4 stars because it didn't completely rid the machine of the problem but the before and after results were amazing.

Review 5 for Washer Cleaner for High-Efficiency (HE) Washers
When I bought my top loading HE machine, I thought the sample was just a way of selling you on something you didn't really need.
As time went on, and I had a mildew type smell, I used just water to clean the machine and used the washer setting for this stuff. But it didn't resolve the smell.
So I purchased these and I can assure you they do work. Not sure how they do what they do or whatever, but they do work. I'm sure there are other ways to do it, but I worried about using bleach for fear of it getting trapped and later putting bleach spots on clothes. So I'll spend the couple of bucks for these and use them as needed.
Pros: Easy to Use, they just work

Review 6 for Washer Cleaner for High-Efficiency (HE) Washers
A home renovation 5 years ago allowed me to build a larger laundry room. I purchased 2 front loading Whilrpool washing machines. While I LOVE the machines, I noticed after awhile that they had a very funky smell after doing a wash. I tried cleaning with white vinegar and even tried an online product to remove the increasingly bad odor. Affresh became the product to banish that funky laundry smell. After one use the odor was gone! Most importantly Affresh had all the elements that I was searching for: it is environmentally friendly, it is safe on septic tanks and all washer components, it is economically priced and easy to use. One tablet a month keep my washers and laundry clean and fresh smelling. This product hit a homerun for me!

Review 12 for Washer Cleaner for High-Efficiency (HE) Washers
I purchased Whirlpool Duet Front Loaders. The sales person told us to purchase the Affresh tablets to clean the washer about every 2-3 months, to prevent mold or and bacteria from growing. We did just that. We always keep the dispenser door and front loader washer door open after usage to dry- prevents the bad odor. Not only do we do that, but we also use the tablets. The smell is refreshing and clean. We also know that out washer is sanitary after use. I love these tablets! Its easy to use, no major cleaning on my part involved. Just throw one in the washer, and the machine does the rest. I highly recommend this product.

Review 15 for Washer Cleaner for High-Efficiency (HE) Washers
I've used these tablets as directed for several months now. I never had a problem with order in my h.e. washer, but I have had periodic issues with residue left behind after a few loads. After using the Affresh tablets as directed, I find that the tablet never fully dissolves and I still occasionally find residue. Maybe it's my washer!
Pros: Easy to Use

Review 16 for Washer Cleaner for High-Efficiency (HE) Washers
I recently bought a three pack of Affresh because it's recommended by Maytag for their new high efficiency washers. I also bought the washer at Home Depot recently and it's great, but that's for another review. I'd read complaints that often HE washer tubs can have a musty odor if not cleaned periodically. Some people say bleach works with hot water, while other say it doesn't do the trick. After a month, I decided to drop an Affresh into the wash cycle. It works perfectly. Nice, clean smell and no residue left in the wash tub. In addition to using Affresh once a month of whenever you notice an odor from the washer, I suggest leaving the lid up after each use so that the tub can air dry.
Pros: works and smells great

Review 19 for Washer Cleaner for High-Efficiency (HE) Washers
Affresh is a product recommended by Maytag to use on the washer machine once a month to keep it clean. I have not found Affresh to be sold in many sotres so I am happy to be able to find it at Home Depot
