eSpares Limescale & Detergent Remover - 6 Descaler Sachets

Protect your dishwasher and washing machine from harmful build-up with eSpares Limescale & Detergent Remover. If you have a smelly washing machine, a smelly dishwasher or your appliance just isn't performing as well as it should be, it could be due to a build-up of limescale and detergent. This product will descale and cleanse your machine, removing limescale, detergent and grease build-up and restore them to their top working condition.

A cost-effective way to prolong the life of your appliance and reduce your energy bills


  • 6 months supply
  • Box contains 6x 50g sachets
  • Suitable for use in all makes and models

Please Note: Not suitable for top loading appliances


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.

If you're not sure if you live in a hard or soft water area, try our limescale post code checker.


By simply using one descaler sachet per month your machine will benefit from the following:

  • Removes limescale build-up from internal parts
  • Eliminates powder build-up and odour-causing bacteria
  • Hygienically cleans all internal parts
  • Maximises the efficiency of your appliance
  • If used immediately with new appliances, reduces detergent quantity by up to a third

    really worthwhile product

    I usually stock up on this when its on offer; even better value for money! Very easy to use. I run a sachet through the dishwasher and washing machine every 6 months which keeps them fresh and free flowing. Recommended.

What ingredients are in the products and what makes these different from other products?

    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.

    This products active ingredient is Sulphamic acid and is safe to use in empty washing machines or dishwashers to clean them. The machines will have a rinse cycle to remove any significant residue from the Appliance during the cycle.

    We have no dismantling information on this model, we believe the hob top is released by removing screws at the back and hinging up before sliding away from he front. There is no 'back light' if it is your timer not lit you will need to confirm the product number (104730?) for us to locate the part you require.

    The active ingredient in one sachet of cleaner is only 5 grammes of Sulphamic acid per treatment around 60 grammes per year. A very small amount that would be extremely diluted but you should check advise from your sewage contractor if in doubt.

Answer this question

...possibly due to a partially blocked drainage hose. Will this product clear the hose or does it only clean the dishwasher itself?

    It will clean washers and dishwashers, for information see our video: How to Diagnose Draining and Motor Problems in a dishwasher:
