    Here's a great article on how to easily do it using vinegar and baking soda. When I cleaned mine I used Borax instead of baking soda.

    Add 2-3 cups of white vinegar to tub and run a cycle without clothes. Run a short cycle after that before washing clothes.
    If you have a front-load washer do not close the door after your last load. Wipe the door and seal after your last load and keep door open to evaporate water. This prevents mold and probably the reason why you asked about cleaning washer. We have had a front-load for years and have NEVER cleaned the washer.

    My front load washer has a cleaning cycle.....manual said to clean with Afresh (in the detergent aisle) or 1/3 cup of bleach. When the cleaning cycle light comes on, I put bleach in the dispenser and run problems with mold or musty smell....always keep door and dispenser open between loads. While the clean cycle is running, I see a lot of suds in the washer.....getting all the detergent out, I guess. When cycle is done, I just wipe out the door and leave it open.

    When my new front load washer was delivered, the delivery man said he has the same model and he uses Tang to clean and get the gunk out of his. He said he runs a wash cycle with only Tang once a month.

    Cycling vinegar cuts through soap scum, although I have never cleaned a clothes washer before, I am left wondering why it needs cleaning.
