If you are like a lot of people, cleaning your smelly washing machine is not high on your list of regular chores. However, despite its intended function, your washing machine is not typically a clean appliance. In fact, soap residue and mineral deposits from detergents often build up in washing machines, preventing it from getting your clothes completely clean.
This build-up can be a little different depending on whether you have a top-loading or a front-loading machine. If you feel like your garments and whites are just not as fresh as they used to be, or if it has been a very long time since you have cleaned your appliance, these are the steps you should follow to get your washing machine back in good shape.
