Thanks for using FixYa. Yes you can use it however, before using it run your washing machine with only two cups of vinegar in it and make sure it is empty & set on its hottest temperature setting so that all the smell is gone. Please revert back for more help.

It was actually filling up and flooding the room. Found that a rat had chewed through a hose and repaired the hose inside the washer and it now works fine. Thanks
