To clean the drum in your Bosch washing machine, follow these simple steps:
1. Empty the drum: Make sure there are no clothes or any other items left inside the drum.
2. Prepare a cleaning solution: Mix equal parts of white vinegar and water in a spray bottle. Alternatively, you can also use a washing machine cleaner specifically designed for drum cleaning.
3. Spray the solution: Open the drum door and spray the cleaning solution all over the drum. Pay special attention to any visible stains or dirt.
4. Let it sit: Close the drum door and allow the cleaning solution to sit for about 30 minutes. This will give it enough time to break down any built-up residue or grime.
5. Wipe the drum: After the solution has had enough time to work, use a clean cloth or sponge to wipe down the drum. Make sure to reach all areas, including the corners and crevices.
6. Clean the rubber seal: The rubber seal around the drum door can also accumulate dirt and grime. Use a damp cloth to wipe it clean and remove any debris.
7. Run a cleaning cycle: To further clean the drum, run a hot water cycle without any clothes. You can add a cup of white vinegar to the detergent dispenser to enhance the cleaning process. This will help remove any remaining residue or odors.
8. Dry the drum: Once the cleaning cycle is complete, leave the drum door open for a while to allow the drum to air dry. This will help prevent any moisture buildup and potential mold growth.
Regularly cleaning the drum of your Bosch washing machine will help maintain its performance and prolong its lifespan. It is recommended to clean the drum at least once every few months.
