    Default Washing machine cleaning ?????

    Ok, I loaded the washer with dirty white clothes. Filled the washer with clean city water, not well water. Added detergent and clorox bleach. The washer then proceeded to do its thing. It washed for about 14 minutes, the water drained out and new water came in and rinsed and that water drained out. Then it filled again with clean water for a deep rinse and then the clothes were spun to get most of the water out of the clothes to go into the dryer. The washer is less than a foot away from the dryer. The clothes came out of the washer CLEAN! Now the Clorox company is telling me I should buy their product to CLEAN MY WASHER. How did the washer get dirty after having water, detergent and bleach in it for 20 minutes? If the clothes came out clean how did the washer get dirty.

    Is it a front loading HD washer?

    Nope, it is a top loader. We bought the upright pair and the dryer is on top because at the time I was on a walker and could not bend to empty the dryer. I just would like to know what ingredient might be in this product that Clorox is advertising? The washer just finished having detergent and bleach in it.

    I have heard of people complaining about mildew forming in front loaders -- of course using chlorine bleach should solve that problem -- I think you can ignore Clorox's suggestion which I somehow think you have already decided to do.��

    The product is mostly for front loaders. Unlike top loaders, the water does not completely drain. That's where the mildew smell comes from.

    With a top loader, if you have a fabric softener dispenser on top of the agitator, it will build up a sludge around it.

    We just pull the tray out and rinse it occasionally , the main issue with the front loaders was the lack of fresh air leaving them damp for extended times. Our new one has a sanitize cycle that heats the water to steam sterilize and kill any spores.

    The deal with the front loader is you have to wipe down the gasket at the door. Water gets trapped behind the fold and mold is the result. Also leave the door open a couple of inches so air will circulate

    We had to clean our washer after accidentally washing the cat.

    We made a 50/50 bleach solution. Worked well.

    We still haven't seen the cat after he ran off.

    We throw some vinegar in it to clean any soap scum from inside and the hoses. Seems to work fine.
