Using Self Clean & Self Clean+ on Your FlexWash™ Washer (WV55M9600)

Self Clean and Self Clean+ are cleaning cycles that remove dirt and bacteria built up in the washer. These cycles help to manage odor that is caused by germs and bacteria. On your FlexWash™ washer, the Upper washer has a Self Clean cycle, and the Lower washer has a Self Clean+ cycle. Self Clean+ is a more intense cleaning cycle for the larger capacity Lower washer.
