To clean your top load machine, start by setting your washer to its hottest temperature, highest capacity & longest cycle. Add 4 cups of white vinegar to the water, close the lid & allow it to agitate for several minutes. Open the lid & allow it to sit for an hour so the vinegar can do its job to get rid of the bacteria hiding in your machine. Let the cycle complete. Wipe down all surfaces inside, including the detergent & fabric softener compartments, with a damp Enviro cloth.
