Keeping this in consideration, can vinegar damage your washing machine?
The acetic acid in distilled white vinegar is so mild that it will not harm washable fabrics; yet is strong enough to dissolve residues (alkalies) left by soaps and detergents. Adding just one-half cup of vinegar to the final rinse will result in brighter, clearer colors.
Additionally, where do you put vinegar in a front load washer? The white distilled vinegar should be placed in the fabric softener dispenser so it will be added during the rinse cycle. Fill the fabric softener cup to the top level with the white vinegar. The vinegar helps remove any detergent and soil that is clinging to fabric clothes feeling soft and clean.

How do I clean my washing machine without vinegar?
If the tray doesn't have a release button, then pour some vinegar in the tray, and scrub with a toothbrush. Put washing soda and borax (or oxygen bleach) into the drum. Put the washing machine on the hottest setting, and use the most amount of water. If the machine has a cleaning cycle, then use this.
