 1: Gather Your Cleaning Supplies

To begin cleaning your top-loading washing machine, gather the following supplies:

  1. White vinegar: A natural cleaning agent renowned for its descaling and deodorizing properties.
  2. Baking soda: An effective solution for removing stubborn stains, eliminating odors, and deodorizing.
  3. Microfiber cloth: Used for cleaning the exterior surfaces of the machine.


 2: Cleaning the Interior of Your Washing Machine

  1. Empty the drum: Remove any clothes or items from the washing machine and ensure the drum is completely empty.
  2. Run a hot water cycle: Fill the drum with hot water, ensuring it covers the highest water level mark. Add four cups of white vinegar to the water and allow the machine to agitate for a few minutes. Pause the cycle and let the mixture sit in the drum for approximately one hour to break down mineral deposits and remove residue.
  3. Add baking soda: After the hour has passed, sprinkle one cup of baking soda into the drum. Resume the cycle and let it run for a few minutes before pausing again. Use a cloth to scrub the interior walls and agitation fins of the machine gently. Allow the baking soda solution to sit for an additional hour to eliminate odors and lift any remaining stains.
  4. Complete the washing cycle: After the designated time, allow the machine to complete the washing cycle. This will rinse away the vinegar and baking soda residue, leaving your washing machine fresh and clean.


 3: Cleaning the Exterior of Your Washing Machine

  1. Disconnect the power: Ensure the washing machine is unplugged to eliminate any risk of electrical shock during the cleaning process.
  2. Wipe down the exterior: Moisten a microfiber cloth with water and gently wipe down the exterior surfaces of the machine. Pay close attention to the control panel, knobs, and any other areas prone to dirt and grime buildup.
  3. Clean the dispensers and filters: Remove and clean the detergent dispenser and fabric softener compartments thoroughly. Rinse them under warm water to remove any residue. Additionally, locate and clean the inlet water filters, if applicable, to maintain proper water flow.
