HE washing machines need to be cleaned, to eliminate the bad-smelling laundry. One simple cleaning task will eliminate the problem and keep your washer in great condition as well. HE washers use less water and less energy, but they can create mildew, mold, and detergent residue buildup, says a Residential Cleaning Service in Evanston, Il. 60201. Some washers have a separate cleaning cycle as an option, so use that if yours has that option. If not, all you need is some chlorine-free bleach, vinegar, and a little time.
Choose the hottest water setting on your machine and the extra rinse option . Add chlorine-free bleach to the bleach dispenser.
Run wash cycle and then repeat without the chlorine-free bleach. Clean the dispensers with a cloth dampened with white vinegar. Dry thoroughly before reinserting. Don't forget the rubber seal-wipe it down with a cloth dampened in white vinegar and dry thoroughly. Finish by wiping down the entire exterior of your washing machine.
Repeat this process monthly and you'll eliminate the stinky laundry and keep your HE washing machine in tip-top shape. A savvy Residential Cleaning Service in Evanston, Il. 60201, suggests to always keep the washing machine door open when you're not using it in order to keep the mildew away.
