Yes this will do a great job. Just put 2 cups in the tub and then use your longest and hottest wash cycle. Joe

Front loading Samsung washing machine smells from mildew. I have tried to clean the gaskets to no avail. What should I do to correct this problem.

If you have a smelly front loading clothes washing machine, toss in a Finish Geltabs (the ones that are all liquid) and run the machine on a hot wash cycle, medium to heavy load (to get more water in the tub) with no clothes in the machine. You don't need to use much of a spin cycle so set it on low. The washing machine will come clean and even the moldy spots on the rubber gaskets will disappear. A second treatment may be needed if the smell is not completely gone. We tried everything from vineger to bleach to baking soda to borax to commercially available odor removers from Whirlpool and Tide. Nothing worked until I hit on this idea. It's cheap, easy and can be done anytime your machine needs a refreshing. I used the orange Geltabs but any fragrance would be fine. Keep the door on your washer open a bit when possible to air out to help preclude thiose nasty smells.

I have a older washer. I want to clean it out (my whites are getting spots from the side of the washer) What should I put in the cycle to clean it out? Baking Soda? Vineger?

I am not too sure with what type of spots you are talking about. If it is rust spots you need to replace it because it cost more to replace the drum than to get a newer model. If you have grease spots it is worn beyond repair and I suggest to get a new machine. Good Luck

I have a Whirlpool front loading duet washer. It's probably around 10 years old... Not sure. But it leaves marks on my light colored clothes and has from early on. I just didn't realize the problem was the...

The brown stains are likely coming from the felt drum seal. The OEM adhesive is tar based - and after time and use - breaks down.

You'll need a new felt seal - and the adhesive that is used should be silicone based... eliminating the brown streaks.

Run a cup each of baking soda and vineger thru a hot wash. Might have to do this a couple of time if smell really bad.

Take out the unit where the liquid soap, softner, etc goes and clean by hand.

Soak a cloth in vinegar and clean the inside of the rubber around the tub.

Why does my washer smell like mildew? I've tried running bleach and vineger through it but it still smells.

usually from soaking clothes after a while the foam from soap sticks to the plastic drum where the bubbles are. its usaully above water level so doesn't get rinsed very well. manually get in there and wipe it out or try overfilling a tad with hot water and try to break it loose also make sure your lint trap is clean.

Cuisinart grind and brew

This happens when the machine needs cleaned. Fill coffee maker with white vineger instead of water. Turn grind off, make sure empty pot is in place. Brew a pot of hot vineger. Repeat. Brew a pot of hot water. Repeat. This process removes mineral buildups inside machine. If you have access to filtered water, start using that to brew your coffee. I do and probably do this process 1 per 6 weeks.
