Tide Washing Machine Cleaner

  • Washing machine cleaner for superior odor and residue removal vs. leading competitor

  • Fights odor-causing residues with a powerful, oxygenated bleach system

  • Penetrates and lifts away residues from the surface of the washer

  • Works with front and top-loading washers (HE and standard)


Tide Washing Machine Cleaner is designed to care for your machine by removing soil, mineral, and detergent residue that may accumulate in the washer over time.

The oxygenated formula and specially designed surface-active ingredients dissolve odor-causing deposits, getting at the source of your smelly washer problem instead of just masking it. This powerful cleaner also prevents the build-up of malodor, which can be transferred to your laundry, and leaves behind a fresh scent and a clean washer.

Not for use with clothes. Use regularly to keep your machine clean.

In case of eye contact, rinse with water. If swallowed, give a glassful of water or milk, and call a physician. Keep out of reach of children.


Tide Washing Machine Cleaner cleans in 3 ways: 1. Fights odors at the source. 2. Lifts residues from inner washer surfaces. 3. Leaves a fresh scent.

How to Use Tide Washing Machine Cleaner:

  1. Remove clothing or other items before using Tide Washing Machine Cleaner.

  2. For a top-loading washing machine, pour 1 pouch of Tide Washing Machine Cleaner directly into your washer tub.

  3. For a front-loading washing machine, pour 1 pouch of Tide Washing Machine Cleaner into your detergent dispenser drawer.

  4. Run washer on normal cycle with the hot water setting.

For maintenance:

Use Tide Washing Machine Cleaner once a month for cleaning washing machine odors and residues to freshen your machine.

If an odor problem or visible residue already exists:

Use 1 pouch of washing machine cleaner per week for 3 consecutive weeks following the instructions above. Then, continue to use 1 pouch per month for maintenance.

My Helper

I have used Tide Washing machine cleaner for many years and loved the cleaning abilities. Unfortunately they have taken the fresh s clean scent out of it and I really miss it . It basically deodorizer my whole house with a clean fresh smell. I wish Tide had made an unscented option instead of changing the one that worked so well. Disappointing for me. I will try and find a new product.

Too much suds!!

The old product worked great and smelled very clean. The new product makes so much suds I have to run the rinse cycle twice afterward to get it all out of my machine. Very frustrating.

The Tide Team
We always want you to get the perfect results, as quality is really important to us, so we're disappointed to hear this! The suds should always rinse out in one cycle, so this isn't what we expect. We'd like to grab some info to share with our team, so we can help you further, if you'll call us at: (800) 879-8433 when you get a chance!
Too many suds.

I would recommend this product ONLY if the instructions stated using half the pouch, OR the pouches were smaller. I had to run four cycles to get rid of all the suds. I like the lack of smell that the old product had

The Tide Team
We're sorry you're disappointed! We definitely wouldn't expect this to happen. Suds can become trapped in fabric if there is not enough room for them to circulate freely. Please give us a call if you'd like to share more about your experience: (800) 879-8433.

The Tide Team
We appreciate your feedback, and we'll be sure to share it with our team! If you want to chat more about this, you can give us a ring at: (800) 879-8433 anytime!

Old product worked fine even with what I thought was a pleasant fragrance. The new and improved product has no odor, however it sent my machine into a suds cycle (which takes an additional 2hrs) Contacted lg: told to not use entire pouch
