How do I use the Tub Clean cycle on my washing machine?
If there is lint build up on the tub or the tub smells moldy, use washing machine cleaners to clean the tub regularly.
You can maintain the tub clean all the time if you run the Tub Clean cycle once per month.
If you see ‘tcL’ flashing from the control panel, it means that it’s time for you to clean the tub.
Empty the unit and run the Tub Clean cycle.

How to prevent musty odor and build ups from the tub
1)Leave the door/lid open after every cycle until the tub is completely dry.
2)Use correct amount of detergents and fabric softeners as instructed by the manufacturers. Dilute concentrated softeners with water for use.
3)You can maintain the washer clean by cleaning the tub regularly.(Preferably once a month)
4)We do not recommend natural detergents (soap) as it does not get dissolved in water well and cause removed dirt to build up on
the tub more easily.
5)If the unit is installed in a damp and dark area or have not been in used for a long time, more dust can build up to the tub. If you haven’t
cleaned the tub for more than 6 months, clean the tub 3 times in a row.
