Saw this on Pinterest & it works great. My washer had a ring of build up around the top, looked dirty so I gave it a try. Wow, looks new again.

2 Hr 30 Min


No-Cook or Other


1 qt
distilled white vinegar
1 qt

Directions Step-By-Step

Fill your washer on largest setting. Add 1 quart of distilled white vinegar. Pour some down the fabric softener dispensers & other dispensers if yours is not removable. Let it aggitate for 1 minute. Stop it, let it sit for 1 hour. (When the hour was almost up, I took a toothbrush to the ring that was above the water line, took little effort). Also, I wiped off any other dirt I saw. Turn the washer on again & run it through the complete cycle.
Repeat this step again, only using the bleach. After you let the cycle run through, run it again with just water, making sure no bleach is left behind.
RESULTS: A bright, clean, bacteria ridden washer that looks new again. Do this at least once a year. Happy cleaning!!!
