Why should you clean your washing machine periodically?
The drum is a place that is often exposed to dirty clothes, bacteria, and fabric dust. After a period of operation, these impurities will accumulate inside the washing tub, clogging the filter and draining system, leading to easy damage to the washing machine.
Therefore, if the drum is not cleaned and removed in time, when the washing machine is operating, these residues will fall off and stick to the clothes. Not only does it lead to an unclean wash, but also an unpleasant musty smell on the clothes.
In addition, regular cleaning of the washing machine also brings many benefits such as:
- Extend the life of the machine
- Deodorize, remove bacteria, residue, dust inside the washing machine
- Helps clothes to be washed more clean
- Increase machine performance

If you clean the whole thing (cleaning the outer tub, cleaning the inner tub, removing mold, …) then about every 2-3 months depending on the frequency of use of the family.
