To clean your top load machine, start by setting your washer to its hottest temperature, highest capacity & longest cycle. Add 4 cups of white vinegar to the water, close the lid & allow it to agitate for several minutes. Open the lid & allow it to sit for an hour so the vinegar can do its job to get rid of the bacteria hiding in your machine. Let the cycle complete. Wipe down all surfaces inside, including the detergent & fabric softener compartments, with a damp Enviro cloth.
Once a month, add a cup of Distilled White Vinegar and a cup of baking soda during the HOT cleaning cycle. pour them directly into the drum. Then, add about cup of vinegar and cup of baking soda into the detergent dispenser.
DIY Dishwasher detergent -1c washing soda, 1c borax, 1/2c kosher salt, 1/2c citric acid. Vinegar in rinse. Love the information. I make vinegar with lemon peel cleaning solution, so may do citric acid in rinse dispenser instead.
