Tip & How-To about Washing Machines
Recently my wife hollered at me to figure out why she could not get the fabric softner to go into her washing machine. By looking a round a bit I figured out what the problem was and am going to pass the solution on with this tip. The solution is very simple and it will only take you a few minutes to clean up things so that they work like new again. Because of the stickiness of the fabric softners this will be something that you will want to do on a regular basis to keep your washer working well.
Pull out the drawer and on the extreme top left of the drawer you will see a plastic tab that holds the drawer from coming all the way out. Push down on the tab and slide the drawer all the way out. You may have to bend down ad look up to see the plastic tab.
You will want to take the drawer to a sink and give it good scrubbing. Wash everything out, take the covers off of the bleach compartment and the fabric softener compartment. Clean out the holes with a toothpick in the tube that the cover sets on. That is were the siphon action takes place that pulls the bleach and fabric softner out of the cup of the drawer.
You also will want to wipe out behind the drawer while you have it apart.
Replace the drawer and you are back in business!!
