    To those who use vineger in their washer, either top or front load, in every instruction manual warns about that...hard on seals and hoses. From experience, I learned the hard dishwasher leaked after using vinegar in the rinse aid dispenser, after 6 months. Vinegar is a good cleaner and things smell so fresh after.
