Yes it can. Use a 5 percent solution. Turn off all the options on the machine like heated wash, heated rinse, and heated dry and add between 10 - 20 ounces during the wash cycle.

The greater the power the greater the chance for dangerous reactions, problems, ... in every area. Muriatic acid (Hydrocloric acid) is probably left to professionals with both knowledge and experience using it in the application desired.
