Cleaning the Exterior - Washer

Possible Solutions

Cleaning the outside of the washer:

Wipe away any spills with a soft, damp cloth or sponge. Use only mild soaps or cleaners when cleaning external washer surfaces. To avoid damaging the washer’s finish, do not use abrasive products.

If your controls are on the washer lid:

Please note that if your washer model has controls on the top of the lid, clean it as directed above. However, the lid will need to dry completely to operate correctly. Even slight dampness can prevent the control from operating. Allow the control to air dry completely, or take a soft, dry cloth and dry the controls before trying to operate the washer.

Cleans even where you can't see

affresh® cleans deep inside your appliances reaching components such as the tub, racks, pump, valves, drain, and recirculation hoses.
