And in essence, it is. But there are many simple ways you can do your bit to help.
Spray down the machine with All-purpose cleaner. Using your old toothbrush, clean all the crevices and cracks that would be hard to reach with just a rag or paper towel.
Open your fabric dispenser and wipe down the inside with a paper towel and toothbrush. Wash the dispenser part in your sink with hot water. Depending on the build-up, you may need that old toothbrush again! Who knew my machine could get so gross! Front loaders have a tendency to grow mold under the seal.
Place the paper towel under the rubber seal around the opening. Repeat until you have bleach-soaked paper towels around the entire opening even the top. Let that soak for at least an hour. Using your all-purpose cleaner, clean out the opening where your tray was. You may have to pull out that old toothbrush!
Once cleaned out, put the tray back in, and wipe down the machine, inside and out. With your gloves on, remove the paper towels from under the rubber seal. And now so clean! After every load, wipe the inside of the door dry, and tuck the top of the towel underneath the rubber seal to soak up the leftover water, and let the rest of the towel hang down in front.
A closed door will make the mold grow and your machine smell musty. I recommend cleaning your washing machine at least once a year or just do the bleach paper towel trick if your front loader starts smelling musty.
