How to Clean and Maintain a Smelly Front Loading Washing Machine
Once a month, add a cup of Distilled White Vinegar & 1 Cup of Baking Soda directly into the drum and use HOT water for washing. Then, I add about ½ cup of vinegar into the fabric softener compartment and ½ cup of baking soda into the detergent compartment. Set the wash on “Quick Wash” with HOT water and High Spin Cycle. If the mold situation is really bad,use bleach instead of vinegar and baking soda. But make sure you run a few empty cycles just with hot water before doing a load of wash.
Homemade cleaner. *Works like a charm & smells great too* take the empty bottle of your favorite cleaner. Don't worry about emptying it out.
