That is not what it is. I would recommend either going to the website affresh.com or best buy/home depot carry this product

Its called Affresh, comes in a green package 3 tablets in each package. Retails at 6.99$ (not sure about in store prices)

Front loads can not drain all water and residue because of gravity. This builds up and causes molding/odor issues in some units

Affresh was solely created to resolve this and replace the Bleach Clean Procedure.

Easy to use, put tablet directly in tub, no clothes or detergent, hot water, normal cycle selection and run it. In your case the idea is to run 3 consecutive washes (1 table per wash) then once monthly after that(1 wash same directions but only the first time you do 3 washes). This will resolve the issues, i use it and buy it for my family and friends.

Moldy smell in clothes, especially towels


need to clean the bellow ( rubber around door). theres a tablet you can buy called "Affresh". It will help to remove the moldy smell. just throw it in washer and run through a regular wash cycle. no clothes, just the tablet. If there is a clean cycle on the machine then use that cycle. Whenever you're finished washing, you should leave the door open for about 20-30 minutes so unit can air out. Also you should wipe around the glass and bellow after each use.

Washer not washing leaving stains on clothing


It sounds like the silicone apron between your washer drum and the door has deteriorated. If that is the case, no cleaner will help you.
Best solution is to order a new one.

You need to replace the rubber gasket around the front of the door. This gasket holds moisture and over time molds. Give us a call or email us and we;ll be sure to get the correct gasket out to you right away. We hope this helps and we hope to hear back from you real soon.

Moldy smelling washing machine.....


Hi, did you wipe out the inside of the boot with the bleach? This is a big problem with all front load machines. If you call the Whirlpool, I believe they have a product out now to help the odor as well.

Hi Jewel,
You may want to try some Washer Magic, or similar product specifically designed to clean out washing machines. I personally use Affresh in my front loader and it works very well.
