What is the best way to remove any sediment build up from having hard water from a washing machine?

There's a product called CLR (Calcium,Lime, Rust) that you can pour on a sponge and scrub down the drum. Use gloves! It probably wouldn't hurt to pour the rest of the bottle in and run a small load (no clothes) to clean out the piping as well.
