How do you clean a front load washer with CLR?

To use CLR in a front-loading machine add the 1/2 cup of CLR to the drum at the beginning of the main cycle. Since a front-loader uses less water than a top-loader, add another three cups of water to the drum after you pour the CLR in. Run the full cycle and then run a second full cycle to rinse the drum thoroughly.
