Top load washing machines are generally easier to maintain but every once in a while, a deep clean is necessary to make your machine last longer.
Step 1: Run an empty wash cycle with hot water temperature settings. Add vinegar and baking soda or bleach.
Step 2: Soak any removable parts like knobs in a tub of water. Add some bleach.
Step 3: Grab a toothbrush and get cleaning edges and hard to reach corners where you can find dirt deposits.
Step 4: Wipe the exterior with vinegar solution and then rub with a clean cloth.
