How to clean your front loader washing machine?

front loader machine

Even with following the manufacturer’s instructions on maintenance, front loader washing machines are more susceptible to mould and to smell.   You may think by keeping the door open it’s enough to allow the moisture to evaporate.  But that is not always true.


White vinegar

Tea Tree Oil

Microfibre cloth




Place 6 drops of tea tree oil in 1 cup of vinegar.

Put the vinegar mixture in the detergent dispenser.

Run on a normal cycle.

Then comes the difficult part.  Mix up some more of the mixture.

Dampen the microfibre cloth in the mixture and get into between the rubber seal that runs around the inside.  For those stubborn spots of mildew use the nailbrush dipped in the vinegar mixture.


A clean and great smelling front loader.
