Washing Machine Maintenance: Wait… This Suds Bucket ISN’T Self-Cleaning?

Yep! Sad to say, our favorite appliance for washing clothes doesn’t clean itself, no matter how much soap you throw in there. If anything, it can actually be a haven for mold and mildew growth—so if you notice your clothing coming out a little… smelly… it might be time for some washing machine TLC.

The good news is that washing your washer isn’t all that washing-ly complicated. It mostly amounts to a good wipe-down every now and then, some tubing inspection, and the occasional empty load run-through combined with vinegar.
