How to Clean a Washing Machine: Who's cleaning the cleaner? Clorox® Washing Machine Cleaner that's who!

How to Clean a Washing Machine

Washing machines collect a lot of dirt and soil during the laundry load. Most debris is washed away with the water in each load, but over time a buildup of dirt can occur. That’s where Clorox® Washing Machine Cleaner comes in handy.

For HE Washers with a “Maintenance Cycle” or “Clean Out Cycle”:

  • Select the “Maintenance Cycle” or “Clean Out Cycle”
  • Fill the machine bleach dispenser to the maximum level with Clorox® Washing Machine Cleaner.
  • Allow the washer to run a complete cycle on hot water to freshen the machine.

For standard machines or HE machines without a designated cycle:

  • Select the “Hot” water setting on your machine.
  • Select the “Extra Rinse” option, if available.
  • Add Clorox® Washing Machine Cleaner to the bleach dispenser. Fill to the maximum level.
  • Run the cycle through its completion.
