How to clean the filter of the washing machine?
The filter of the washing machine is the place where the remains of detergent, lint and other types of Unidentified Flying Objects (Flying) that were in the pockets of your pants and forgot to empty. To avoid clogging the drain we have to roll up our sleeves and empty the filter completely.
To clean it, the first step is to find it. This is usually found inside the drum of our washing machine.
But before we begin our exhaustive research, it’s a good idea to do an emptying cycle (to prevent this task from becoming an impromptu foam party) and then disconnect the washer from the light. We don’t want scares.
Once located, we loosen the cap, remove the filter and remove all accumulated debris. Then we left everything as we had found it and, clean filter!
IMPORTANT!!! Remember to close it tightly and leave it as you found it.
