Does the EWF1408B1WA always need the 90 minute Monthly clean with 1/4 litre bleach solution? It says to on page 8 of the manual. If you don't do it what happens?

I don't own this machine but generally they say this because otherwise you get mould and build up of gunk from soap residue/ lint etc inside the machine where the water travels. If you don't it will make the machine and clothes smell of gunky mould. Most machines need this hot cleaning wash done. Some use diluted vinegar or eucalyptus drops etc instead of bleach in the hot water.


Hi, Never have to do this as I make my own Fabric Conditioner and this keeps your front load machine in excellent condition. I have been doing this for 15 years now and it also saves on buying shop purchased fabric conditioner. This is the simple recipe

Use an old 2 litre bottle add 3 heaped teaspoons of Lectric soda crystals a few drops of soluble Eureka lavender oil (but make sure it is the soluble ones) then fill up with warm tap water - shake and then use as you would your normal expensive one for a fraction of the cost and it also helps keep your machine clean and smelling nice. All items available in Woolies or Coles.

Give it a try.
