How do I care for and clean my Frigidaire Laundry Center?

For the washer:

To prevent odors, remove clothing from the washer promptly. Feel free to use a damp cloth or mild soap and water to clean the top and sides of the laundry center.

Be sure to avoid hard, gritty or abrasive cleanser. Dry the washer top, the area around the lid opening and the underside of the lid to prevent often to avoid moisture build-up.

When possible, to help prevent odors and humidity accumulation, leave the lid open for a little bit of time or when not in use.

When washing heavily soiled items, shake or brush off excess dirt or sand before putting in the washer. A dirty residue may remain in the tub, simply wipe it with a non-abrasive household cleaner, and then use the RINSE ONLY cycle.

For the dryer:

Clean the lint filter after every load. Lint build-up on the filter restricts air flow, which causes longer drying times.

Occasionally a waxy build-up may form on the lint filter from using dryer-added fabric softener sheets. Simply wash the filter with warm, soapy water. Dry the filter thoroughly and put back in the dryer.

DO NOT use the dryer without the lint filter in place.

Every 18 months, it is recommended to have a qualified service personnel clean the dryer cabinet interior and exhaust duct. These areas can collect lint and dust over time. An excessive amount of lint build-up can result in reduced drying performance.
