If so, pour the cleaning agent mixture slowly into the washing machine. After flushing, let it sit for a moment, then flush the inside of the washing machine with clean, normal room temperature water.

"Don't leave it for long, we immediately add cold water, because there is a seal in the machine made of rubber, so it's safe," stressed the owner of the YouTube account Yoga Arief, quoted by BrilioFood on Friday (10/5).

While pouring clean water, manually rotate the washing machine spinner with your hands so that the water can more easily enter the washing machine.

Finally, fill the washing machine with clean water and start the machine as usual. This last process is carried out to rinse the washing machine from any remaining cleaning agent that is still attached. Once rinsed, the washing machine is ready to be used again.
