Thank you for being a Maytag customer. The information you are requesting on the Clean Washer Indicator Light is below. I cut and pasted it from the use and care guide, this guide if you would like a copy is on the product page. You can download it by clicking on the Specifications tab or scrolling down to the bottom of the page.
The Clean Washer cycle and light is designed to keep your washing working great. It helps prevent the potential for odors. Read about the indicator light and clean washer cycle. Thank you again.
CLEAN WASHER REMINDER
The Clean Washer Reminder indicator lights after 30 wash
cycles without a clean washer cycle. See the “Cleaning your
washer” section to run the clean washer cycle, or you can
press REMINDER RESET button to manually reset clean
washer cycle counter.
CLEANING YOUR WASHER
Keep your washer as clean and fresh as your clothes.
To keep washer interior odor-free, follow this
recommended cleaning procedure after every 30 washes:
1. Make sure the washer is empty.
2. Using recommended AFFRESH®
add one tablet to washer drum.
If using liquid chlorine bleach, add 3/4 cup (180 mL) to
liquid chlorine bleach dispenser.
IMPORTANT: Do not add detergent to CLEAN
WASHER with AFFRESH™
cycle. Do not use more than
recommended amount of bleach to avoid damaging
product over time.
3. Close washer lid.
4. Press POWER/CANCEL.
5. Select CLEAN WASHER with AFFRESH™
6. Press START/PAUSE. Water will pour into washer
for a moment and pause, lid will lock, then cycle
NOTE: For best results, do not interrupt cycle. If cycle
must be interrupted, press START/PAUSE twice and run
a RINSE/DRAIN & SPIN cycle to ensure cleaner or bleach
have been rinsed from washer.
To clean exterior:
1. Use a soft, damp cloth or sponge to wipe up any spills.
2. Use all-purpose surface cleaner, if needed.
IMPORTANT: To avoid damaging the washer’s finish,
do not use abrasive products.
