Effects of hard and soft water on your appliances

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

Element

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.

Drawer

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

Benefits

By simply using one sachet of the eSpares Washing Machine and Dishwasher Cleaner & Descaler per month your machine will benefit from: 

  • A hygienic clean of all internal parts
  • Removal of limescale build-up
  • Eliminating powder build-up and odour-causing bacteria
  • Removal of food particles that build up in your machine
  • An improvement in the efficiency of your appliances

eSpares Top Tip: Dissolve a sachet of descaler into a spray bottle filled with warm water. You can then remove mould and residue from the door seal, detergent drawer and detergent drawer housing.

Note: A typical hot wash cycle will cost around 25p depending on the tariff. 

How to Clean a Smelly Dishwasher

Instructions:

  • Pour half of the sachet into the detergent dispenser and the remainder into the bottom of your dishwasher.
  • Select a wash cycle at a temperature higher than 55°C without prewash.

    Great item 05 May 2022

    Much better to buy this than one use bottle at a time from the supermarket. 6 sachets, so already done dishwasher and washing machine with enough for both to be done twice more.

Bottom blade of my Bosch dishwasher does not rotate tried dishwasher cleaner, still no joy.

    Re Stanley's question on dirty dishes: There can be many reasons why a dishwasher may have poor results, search our advice centre for more information as it is unlikely to be a 'fault' on the machine.

  • We have same problem with Bosch dishwasher. Have used Bosch descaler and cleaner regularly but still does not fully clean all dishes which we do not overload. Is it time to call out a Bosch engineer, which is costly? By Stanley - Maldon Essex - 25 October 2017
  • Parminder from eSpares
    Parminder at eSpares says...

    The fault is usually caused by blockages or excess food residue built up in the spray arm holes. Other causes may be overloading dishes or a clogged filter or pump.

On the packet it says put in detergent dispenser. The picture on the website says put in the drum. Which is correct and do you put the contents of a whole sachet in the dispenser of a dishwasher?

Will this product remove the black mould build-up on the rubber rim seal? Do I need a separate cleaning product for that or even replace the rubber (door) seal?

By Ian Loughlin - Leyland - 25 January 2020

    If you can't remove it with your fingernail the door seal would need to be replaced.

    eSpares Staff at eSpares says...

    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.
