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


#41

recommend an empty wash on the hottest temperature (plus detergent) to help resolve a stinky washer. Not necessary now, but a tip for the future


#42

Thank you for this tip.


#43

Thanks mate. Good to know the thread has delivered something of use :+1:


#44

I live to give.


#45

And please make sure all the fluff is cleared out of the tumble dryer. This is actually really important as is a big cause of fires.


#46

My machine makes me do this (happening as we speak!)


#47

Lovely bit of H&S there


#48

i don’t have a washing machine, i do my laundry in the softly chuckling brook behind my house


#49

No worries M9. Almost makes up for that absolute clusterfuck of an OP.

Almost…

Please ensure that the lint build up in the gravel bed is not affecting grayling stocks.


#51

Pretty clean


#52

Tumbler dryer is a state though


#53

how do we do this? where is the filter?

I also need to get that stuff to clean the dishwasher. will do it later, I promise.


#54

Mine looks like this and that entire thing was just a bundle of lint, yo.


#55

Should be at the front bottom somewhere. Google your machine though and don’t be a Noah and drain first.


#56

Teachers pet


#57

Wtf I didn’t know about this I thought u were referring to the mesh thing, I have never cleaned anything that looks like that!!!


#58

This is a good reminder, thanks! My soap drawer game is pretty strong, but I’ve had to run extra drainage cycles on a couple ignored loads recently and I think it’s filter cleaning time. There’s a load in right now but I’ll give it a go in a bit and report back!


#59

I did mine last week, thanks for the reminder though. I have also banned my TV from using ‘colour catcher sheets’ as they are a) prone to finding their way into the filter and b) bullshit.

softener + sports clothing do not mix well so I haven’t used it for about 4 years now
