Try vinegar. Fill the washer with hot water, add 2 cups vinegar and let it soak an hour or more. Run it through a full wash without loading it. This is how you remove soap scum from your washer. This is something you should do as soon as you see any build up and remove it then.

I opt for the vinegar solution. Vinegar is the best cleaner, etc of all otc cleaning products. good luck. And it is very 'green' to use.

For the outside of the dispenser and around the rim of the drum, use a dry fabric softener sheet. It wipes off like magic!


I first used this tip for chewing gum on the inside of the dryer. Works great!
