HELP! Mould in washing machine.

Arrgh. Not only in the liquid drawer (that I have no idea how to remove to give it a good wash), but also behind it, along the pipe/hole where the detergent etc goes down to the drum.

I did the soda/vinegar thing today as the clothes smelled.

Black mould still there.

Is there any hope? A specific product? And how do I take the bloody drawer out? It's Ariston AML125.

you can get a washing mchine cleaner packet( a bit like descaler for the kettle) which I have used before for mould on our machine( I believe it is only mouldy soap). I put the sachet in after scrubbing the draw, let the cycle run and then put the machine on the hottest wash possible to kill any further germs or get rid of any other chemicals.

We had this and had to have a washing machine engineer out (for a separate issue). His advice was:
Use a biological washing powder every now and again.
Run the machine on the hottest cycle, empty, once a month.

It seems to have sorted our problem.
