Hello, the cheap way, apparently, is to do this:

Set the machine on a hot cycle without any clothes or detergent. Add 3-4 cups of white vinegar to the water, and allow the machine to agitate for a minute to incorporate the vinegar. Add about half cup of baking soda. Allow the machine to run again to mix in the baking soda. Stop the washer at this point and allow the water to sit for 30 minutes to one hour. Put the machine on a drain cycle to drain the solution.
