A washing machine is not the easiest object to clean. Simply wiping the surfaces with a damp cloth is often not enough. Complicated and hidden details require special care.

How to clean the powder tray

  • Remove the structure from the compartment and clean the surfaces with soap, hot water and an old toothbrush.
  • Chlorine-containing toilet cleaning products will also help to cope with plaque and mold. In the presence of heavy dirt, simply fill the tray with them and leave for 1-2 hours, and then proceed to cleaning.

How to clean a washing machine under an elastic band

  • Mix bleach with warm water in a ratio of 1: 1, moisten a cloth in the solution and, pulling the rubber gasket, walk over all the inner surfaces.
  • In the presence of heavy dirt and mold, leave a towel soaked in the solution under the gasket for half an hour. Then remove the cloth and remove the dirt with a sponge or toothbrush.

How to clean the drum

  • Pour 100 ml of chlorine bleach into the drum of the machine and start washing at a temperature of at least 60 ° C. Without underwear, of course.
  • Citric acid can be used to remove scale. Pour 100 g into the drum and start washing at maximum temperature. Ideally, if the mode will include a double rinse. Then the plaque will be removed by 100%.
  • Mix a small amount of water and soda in a 1: 1 ratio and pour the solution into the detergent compartment. Pour a little vinegar into the drum itself: no more than 400 ml. Set the maximum temperature and let the machine do almost all the work for you. Then remove the remaining dirt with a sponge and wipe the drum dry. Plaque, mold and unpleasant odor will disappear without a trace.

How to clean the fuel tank from scale

  • Citric acid will help to get rid of scale on the electric heater again. The amount of powder depends on the degree of contamination, but on average 250 g is required for a machine with a load of 5 kg. Pour 200 g into the powder compartment, and 50 g into the drum and start washing at maximum temperature.
  • More aggressive acetic acid is also able to cope with scale. It is enough to add 50 ml of vinegar to the container for the air conditioner and turn on the machine. Be careful: vinegar can damage the rubber elements.

How to clean the drain pump filter

Usually the filter is located in the lower part of the front side of the machine behind a plastic lid.

Lay a dry towel on the floor, put a container under the lid: when you take out the filter, the remnants of water may leak out of the machine. Now feel free to open the lid and pull out the cork.

Manually remove all the garbage that has collected inside. If necessary, treat the surface with detergent and wipe dry.

How to clean the drain hose

During the cleaning of the drum with soda and vinegar, the drain hose is also cleaned. But if there is a serious blockage, you have to take additional measures.

Disconnect the washing machine from the mains and turn off the water supply. Disconnect the hose from the machine (water may spill out in the process, so do not forget to substitute the container).

Now you can start cleaning. For it, a Kevlar cable with a non-metallic (!) brush at the end is used. First, clean the hose on one side, then on the other, and at the end, rinse it under a stream of hot water.

How to clean a washing machine with vertical loading

Cleaning is carried out at the highest temperature. First pour 2-3 cups of vinegar into the water and let the machine mix the solution for a couple of minutes.

Then add half a cup of baking soda. Allow the components to react, and then turn off the appliance and leave it to soak. This will take from 30 minutes to an hour.

While the insides of the machine are being cleaned, take care of the rest of its parts. Mix vinegar and water in a 1: 1 ratio and wipe the surface of the device with the solution, clean the powder compartment.

When the machine gets wet, resume washing. Wait until all the water is drained, and use a sponge to remove any remaining dirt.

Recommendations for the care of the washing machine

To keep your car clean for as long as possible, try to follow these tips:

  • Do not use too much powder. Excess detergent can accumulate inside the machine.
  • Clean your clothes from heavy dirt before you start washing.
  • Use special descaling agents.
  • Leave the door open after washing. This way you will reduce the risk of fungus formation.
  • From time to time, make an empty typewriter work at maximum temperature. Hot water by itself copes well with minor pollution.
