Manually Starting Self Clean cycle on Electrolux Washer
So I've had my front load washer for 4 months & I haven't done a self clean cycle. I have been prompted by the machine to perform but I've always ignored it. I know it needs to be done, but wasn't sure how often. Now I know that when it's prompting me to do it, it needs to be done. How novel. lol
So, I want to do a self clean cycle manually.
I followed the instructions in the manual.
1. wake up washer by pressing any button rotate cycle knob to handwash press start and then cancel.
2. wake up washer again by pressing any button then immediately and simultaneously press and hold the eco friendly and control lock button for 5 seconds or until the LCD display changes.
Here's my question. Changes to what?? I held the buttons until the screen changed to "Ready".
I am not sure my machine is operating on the clean cycle. Water temp shows "cold/cold" and "low" spin. Wouldn't the cleaning cycle change these settings to "Hot/hot" & Maximum spin?
So convulted. Couldn't they have added a button that said "clean washer drum". Crazyiness.
Not sure what I'm doing wrong here. Anyone have any tips/suggestions?
