Tub Clean

Using the washing machine in a humid space for a long period of time can lead to a buildup of mold and germs in the air inside the washer tub. However, you can use the TUB CLEAN cycle on a monthly basis.

Even if your washer is not located in a humid space, mold and debris will naturally build up over time and it is therefore still recommended to use the TUB CLEAN cycle on a monthly basis for the freshest results.
