DIRECTIONS

  • Set the machine on the highest water level, put the water temperature on hot & set on a "normal" wash cycle.
  • Fill a gallon jug with hot tap water.
  • When the cycle begins, stop it & add the gallon of water. Be careful not to overfill-you just want to get the water level up high enough to reach that yucky upper rim.
  • Next, add 2 to 4 cups of household chlorine bleach. Close the lid & restart the wash cycle.
  • After a few minutes, stop the cycle, but don't open the lid.
  • Let the washer sit for 30-plus minutes to give the bleach & hot water time to work at removing all the "yuck" you did see & also that you didn't see. Let the machine finish the wash cycle, & then open the lid to air out the inside.
  • Your washing machine should be sqeaky-clean & ready to handle laundry.
  • Note: Before doing a load of towels, take one & wipe the inside rim of the tub, the farbic softener dispenser & other areas where "yuck" seems to accumulate just to stay on top of buildups that can cause odors!
