eSpares Washing Machine and Dishwasher Cleaner

(Limescale & Detergent Remover) - 6 Descaler Sachets

 Protects your machine from limescale & detergents
 Removes bad odours & harmful bacteria build-up
 6-month supply - boosts performance, saves money...

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 descaler will 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 cleaner sachet per month your machine will benefit from the following:

  • Hygienically cleans all internal parts
  • Removes limescale build-up from internal parts
  • Eliminates powder build-up and odour-causing bacteria
  • Maximises the efficiency of your appliance
  • If used immediately with new appliances, reduces detergent quantity by up to a third
  • Note: A typical hot wash cycle will cost around 25 pence depending on tariff.

    Highly effective product!

    This is yet another repeat purchase of this excellent product by me - I keep buying it because it keeps doing a really good job at a very good price. It is highly effective at stripping visible scale from the electric heating element in my dishwasher and I have complete confidence that the product works the same wonders inside my washing machine. Regular de-scaling is so much easier and cheaper than replacing failed electric elements - try it!

    Does the job

    Re-freshes and cleans both dishwasher and washing machines, even removed heat sprayed on wax from the machine and on a full load of contaminated crockery, from part of a wax candle inadvertently left in the dishwasher! After cleaning off the wax, rewashed crockery and glasses brought everything up spotless, it also took the white coating off the glasses, gathered over many years!

Unclean dishes 3 Answers

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

    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.

The type is like a normal front loader but with a lifting lid and a door in the drum, not a twin tub.

    It is possible (but in our opinion unlikely) that using this product could increase the chance of the appliance leaking so it has this warning. This would apply to most if not all other descaling remedies.

    This will work in a soft water area and remove the limescale and detergent build up inside the machine.

I've used the Cleaner on at least 4 occasions recently and its still leaving mucky bits on my clothes. What's more worrying is that its now started leaving black bits that look like oily marks on my clothes, which I cannot remove. Im now scared to use my machine - is there anything else you can suggest? Please Help?

    oil marks on clothes would suggest the bearings are failing, we have a video that would help you to diagnose if this is the issue just copy and paste into your browser.
