What goes in, must come out ..... eventually!

Recommended Posts

Daughter visited us last Christmas "bought some washing down if thats OK?" - yeah no problem. Put it in the washing machine and done a wash . She takes her washing out and says "oh thats strange the clasp part is missing off me bra!" - Oh I says I bet its come off in the machine somewhere "thats OK" she says "it was an old one, don't worry about it, I will get another one"

Well I worried about it because it wasnt inside the drum. and i thought about it stuck somewhere between inner and outer wash drum and what damage it could do ,, or be doing!

Since Christmas I have cleaned the pump filter every month as normal , nothing but the normal hair and fluff on the filter. 

Took the filter out the other day (we are now in April) .... what greeted me do you reckon LOL - this!  :

Hi Andy. It sounds like your daughter is a lot more chilled than yourself – no offence 🙂 It's a good job that it found its way into the pump filter. Something like that could have got wrapped around the heating element or even caught at the back of the drum. Once in the pump filter it's not likely to cause any major problems, but it would have caused a full blockage eventually because it just attracts all sorts of rubbish which builds up. May very well have ended up smelling too.
