To clean and freshen the interior of the front-leading washer:
- Make a solution of one cup bleach and two cups warm water. Be careful not to spill or spash the bleach solution.
- Wipe the door seal with bleach solution and soft cloth.
- Fill bleach dispenser with chlorine bleach.
- Run the washer through a complete cycle using hot water.
- Repeat the wash cycle if necessary.
My washing machine manufacturer recommends doing this process every 60 to 120 days.
