How to clean my washing machine drawer?

This morning it was disgusting, gunk and black mold. I have managed to clean out the softener side of the drawer and get rid of the mold, but the side for the powder is still dirty. I think it's dried on, encrusted powder. I have scrubbed at it but it won't budge.

Will a long soak have any effect? Or is there anything I can use to lift it off?

In the dishwasher if you have one!

soak in boiling water or perhaps white vinegar might shift it.

Soak in hot water with some bleach is one tip I have read.

I pull mine right out and put it in the dishwasher, but a good long soak should do it.
