Hard water leads to deposits building up in your appliance, which reduces its efficiency and leads to premature failure. In fact, British Water say that even a 1.6mm coating of limescale on a heating element can make it up to 12% less effective.

All types of water can cause a build-up of detergent residue inside your machine, which can lead to blockages. This build-up provides an environment for bacteria to thrive causing unpleasant odours.

Re DM from London's comments.
The main active ingredient is sometimes used in denture cleaners and although in high concentrations this product could be harmful, when discharged from the appliance in our opinion it is likely to be no more of a problem than washing machine discharge or even domestic bleach. This would quickly be dispersed in the sewage and waste water from a normal home.

The active ingredient in this product is highly toxic and harmful to aquatic life and has been tested on rats, guinea pigs and rabbits. Ok, so you are only using small diluted amounts, but this is sufficiently corrosive to....clean your washing machine! The residues which leave your machine all end up in our waters....they don't magically disappear. I discovered that leaving the door open and mopping up the pooled water left in the door seal stops the drum being smelly as I guess the bacteria need moisture to survive.

QIs breakdown of electronic programme panel due to limescale?1 Answer
We are in a hard water area but have a topped-up water softener. Our washing machine hadn't had a problem in 9 years, then just died. Could limescale be the problem or does this just 'happen'?

The heater element may fail as a result of limescale and possibly blow a fuse but the control panel itself is not effected by limescale.
