How do I clean my washer properly?

I have the top loading LG Waveforce. It's a great washer and we have not had any issues with it. The only problem is how do you effectively clean the rubber cylinder at the top. It keeps getting moldy. Is there an easy and effective way to clean this piece?

Answer: 
I leave my lid open unless I'm using the machine, so it drys itself out. I've always done that, even with my old school washers.

Answer: 
Follow the directions in your user manual that came with the washer. Also, you should leave the lid open after you are done washing, so dampness can be aired & dried. Close it a few hours later. You can also contact LG

Answer: 
We regret the trouble you have experienced with this washing machine. Use a towel or soft cloth to wipe around the washer lid opening and lid glass. Run the TUB CLEAN cycle once a month, or more often if needed, to remove detergent buildup and other residue. Cleaning recommendations can be found on page 27 of your owner’s manual.

Answer: 
We regret the trouble you have experienced with this washing machine. Check to ensure the load is well balanced and not leaning to the side. If the unit is still rubbing on something, then it may require service. To make service arrangements, you may either contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000, or you can check our Repair Provider Lookup on our website, at http://www.lg.com/us/support/repair....

Answer: 
Yes, most of my loads are on the smaller side and I have no problems. The wash cycle is shorter the fewer clothes in the machine. They say to wash like items, but I've mixed towels in with my clothing with no problems.

Is there a way to prewash with this machine?

I sometimes like to prewash a load with vinegar. Can this be achieved with this machine?

Answer: 
Unless I have missed something on mine there is not a pre-wash setting. There is a soak function that you could probably use. However, these machines wash clothes longer and, in my opinion, so much better than traditional washer that I am betting you won't use/need a pre-wash!

I use baking soda in the place of bleach. I used to add it to the bottom of the tub prior to loading the clothes. Can i still do this? What about powdered Oxiclean?

Also, can I wash rugs with a rubber backing?

Answer: 
Rugs with rubber backing would be a no. That would be a waterproof item. No washing Tennis shoes either.

I have added Oxy clean, but I mixed it in a pitcher of hot water first so it would dissolve because I wasn't sure how it would work any other way.
