How can I sanitize my washing machine?
To sanitize your clothes washer, you can run a clean-out cycle while the washer is empty. If your washer doesn’t have a specific clean-out cycle, you may perform this function manually. Remember: do not put laundry in the washer.
Also, if your washer doesn’t have a bleach dispenser, then begin by selecting a hot water cycle (and an extra rinse cycle), and start the washer. Once you have a little water in the bottom of the tub, you can add ½ cup Clorox® Regular Bleach2 directly to the washer tub and then restart the washer.
