Perform a regular maintenance wash

We recommend that you should clean the inside of your machine at least once per month. We call this a ‘maintenance wash’. At the end of each cycle there may be a build-up of sludgy deposits of undissolved soap powder and fabric conditioner along with lime scale. This build up can sometimes result in a pungent or bad smell coming from the drum and a regular maintenance cycle will clean away this unwanted build up. It’s simple! Just put the empty machine on a hot 60 degree cotton cycle! You may add a special cleaner to make the maintenance wash more effective, or a descaling additive to keep your machine hygienically clean, smelling fresh and working efficiently. So when your clothes will come out of the machine smelling clean and fresh!

Hoover have produced our own cleaning product called ‘Care plus Protect’ which gives really good results when used once per month by not just cleaning the machine but also removing any lime scale build up. More information can be found in the informative video clip.
