Hello All  :hankywave:,

I posted this because I would appreciate any further cleaning advice, above that which I already tried...white vinegar and hot water rinses.

This method DID clean the bottom of my basket excellently!! However, I am dealing with a basket stuck on its shaft, see other post.

Are there any other, more powerful yet safe methods of cleaning the inside of this machine?

Despite the fact that I'm currently unable to remove the basket off the shaft, I can see white residue/build-up on the inside of the tub, and outside of the basket.

This "build-up" must consist of a combination of hard water deposits, detergent, lint, and whatever else might grow :blech: or be deposited. I have learned some very valuable lessons for future use of detergent and type of water, etc. :headbang:

However, this does not address my current question of how to most powerfully and safely clean these deposits.

Thank you for all of your advice, suggestions, information, etc... :kiss:

Hi again kdog,

Am I not being clear in my posts? :birdeye:

My question for THIS POST is about liquids other than vinegar for the use of cleaning...not mechanical access to the machine...that I have already accomplished as far as I am able...hence my subscription to this site and posts.

I kindly encourage you to more carefully read what I am asking for, specifically.

If there is a question of lack of clarity, please kindly inform me. I would appreciate it so I can rephrase my posts. Or am I misunderstanding your replies? :goofball:

Would you please let me know if that is the case?

Thanks much :thumbsup:!

O.K. but the most effective way to clean the sludge is to gain access to it(in the outer tub), but it gets confusing for all of us with 2 posts on the same topic, I will reply on your first post.

You are correct!!

However, my question to this post is bolded above...for the purpose of future reference (i.e. to gain knowledge for myself) as well as anything else I can try now (in the way of liquids) to more thoroughly and powerfully clean any current or future build-up. That's all...;)

PS: I checked the archives (FAQ) and this question is not addressed.

Thanks for replying...:cheers:

What is anyone's opinion on the use of phosphoric acid...diluted? :yikes:

How-dee!!

Since I have not had any more replies, I thought I would share with you my further cleaning experiences for this machine ONLY: Fisher Paykel GWL10-US

A 1:1 solution of white distilled vinegar and purified water (since I have very old and very hard water) cleaned every bit of calcium-deposit, lint buildup, detergent remains and anything else in this mix... EXCELLENTLY!!!

My machine looks brand new inside and out!!!

Now...back to true problem...(see other post re: spin cycle noise)...

A Hip Hip Hooray for simple vinegar and water :bananadance:
