I have sachets of powder that you use in the washing machine and dishwasher that you put on the drawer and do an empty 60degree plus wash .it cleans the machine out and stops build up of grunge and nasty smells that conditioner can cause.

My washing machine has been driving me mad, everytime I put the softener in the drawer it either does'nt go or my drawer is left full of water. Talking at work this is a problem that lots of us are encountering. I have washed the drawer out but still the same, even poked a cocktail stick down the hole. Tried more expensive softeners, even cheap runny ones. Even Googled the problem but no-one seemed to have an answer. Now I have done 2 90 degree washes & bingo, all is working ok. I think we are all washing on low temperature washes & the pipes are getting clogged. I now plan on doing a hot wash at least once a month as I think it un-cloggs the pipes. Hope this helps someone else.
