How to Clean Your Washing Machine

Today let us share how to clean your washing machine to you, it’s a good idea to give it a scrub-down a few times a year. This will rid your washing machine of soap scum  build-up, dirt, and mildew, along with associated unpleasant odors.

For Front Loading Washing Machines

  1. First, fill with hot water and set the washing machine on the largest wash setting . Put 2 cups of bleach and run it though a full cycle.
  2. After that fill with hot water once again on the largest setting and put 2 cups of vinegar. Run through a full wash and rinse cycle again.
  3. Run another wash cycle with water only to flush out remaining dirt and grime.
  4. Remove the fabric softener and bleach dispenser and let them sit in a bowl of warm, soapy water. Place on a towel to dry before putting them back where they belong.
  5. Finally, add 1 cup of bleach to a gallon of warm water. Pull back and thoroughly clean the rubber door seal with a sponge or soft cloth. To reduce odor and mildew build-up, leave the door open between uses.

  2. Run it through the longest wash and rinse cycle.
  3. Fill the machine with hot water and put 4 cups of distilled white vinegar, then let stand for another hour.
  4. Meanwhile, use distilled vinegar to thoroughly clean the bleach and fabric softener dispensers, lid, and nobs.  An old tooth brush or cotton swabs can really get into those crevices for a detailed cleaning.
