To clean this appliance use a mix of vinegar and hot water, let it run through a cycle empty, then go over the stubborn spots with a cloth.  

Washing Machine & Dryer 

Unless you have a particularly dirty load your washing machine should be cleaned once a month. 

The same goes for your dryer, expect you should clean this appliance’s filter after every load, to keep your clothes fresh and clean.
