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.

It is possible over time limescale could build up on the drum shaft and slightly wear the seal to accept the thickening. If this were dissolved and removed it could lead to leaking.
Therefore this warning has been added.

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.
