Hey, hey, looking to see what we've bought in the past week or so?

We had an issue with the front loader giving off a funky smell. I'm very conscientious to leave the door open a little bit to keep it from getting that mildew smell that the old front loaders are famous for so I knew it wasn't from that!

I'm also very picky and make certain that after I take a load of laundry out, I pull that rubber gasket down in the opening and make sure there isn't a stray sock or other undergarment in there blocking the drain holes.  Been there, done that!

What I did NOT know is that there is a 2nd filter that needs to be cleaned out periodically! Sad because we've had this washer for TEN years!

First thing you have to do is UNPLUG THE WASHER and then pull the front kick …
