Red face Help--the washing machine stinks of Walbernize!

I'm in deep trouble here. Our relatively new front loading highly sophisticated washing machine is churning out clothes that stink of Walbernize. Really, I threw out the saturated polishing cloth... I just washed the cloth I was buffing with, along with some clothes I wore while doing the job. What can I do to remove the residues from the washing machine? My wife is not best pleased with this. Would baking soda work? Or vinegar? I can't be the only one who has done this!! Thanks in advance for any ideas. Nick

Lots of vinegar. Ive also used Simple Green in attempts to remove the stench of gasoline. The vinegar worked best though.
