Can everyone please clean their washing machine filters when they get home (now if you already are)


#21

Mine is a washer dryer and we don’t usually use the dryer but I did the wash prior to the failure! Let that me a warning to you, bay.


#22

No softener?!


#23

UPDATE

Some very mild fluff build-up. Otherwise nothing to worry about.

This thread is a farce.


#24

Noted.
I’m going to print out this thread and pin it to the washer/dryer too.


#25

You know what Onzlo, I’ve got a free weekend and short of putting the Christmas decs into the loft I was planning on doing fuck all but consider this added to my list.


#26

Hahahah Noah’s got a tiny filter!

I’d show you mine but it is currently on a drum clean.


#27

Thank you for your kind wishes x


#28

no i don’t believe in it


#29

At least mine’s in good working order


#30

Never done it. Don’t know where it is on my washing machine.
Remember when I asked you to check if your washing machine had a ‘base plate’ on the bottom as mine didn’t. What a day that was!


#31

why don’t you believe in it?
is it like lip balm?


#32

i just downloaded the user manual for my washing machine to see what it’s about. says you should drain it first or you’ll get water all over your floor.


#33

Probably my favourite ever DiS moment.


#34

have just never used it. my clothes are soft enough already. idk.


#35

Many thanks for the reminder. Sunday will be washing machine day. Sonic Youth will provide the soundtrack, obviously.


#36

classic use of a shallow baking tray in a fruitless attempt to catch all the water spilling out


#37

Oh no - it was fine. There were only a few drops left after my initial attempt based on Balonx’s feeble instructions in the OP


#38

Probably good to give your floor a clean anyway.

My pleasure.


#39

if the filter is actually blocked then the problem is the machine won’t drain - so then you really need that baking tray


#40

I also do ^this. Top tippage NV :+1:
