How and where does dirt accumulate in the washing machine??
The washing machine removes the dirt from the laundry and thus makes it wonderfully clean. However, the removed dirt and other particles such as sand, lint and soap residues from the detergent must be removed with the water. In the process, the washing machine itself gets dirty, and on almost all parts of the device.
Dirt deposits can form in and underneath the drum, in the hoses, on the seals and on the heating element. A special dirt trap is, of course, the lint filter, where coarse dirt collects and foreign objects such as stones, small change or buttons are caught. And the detergent drawer usually gets dirty very quickly and heavily, because the detergent is not rinsed out effectively enough, leaving behind detergent residues and moisture.
Finally, the washing machine can of course also become dirty from the outside, for example from house dust and perhaps also from stains from loading dirty laundry or from spills from adding liquid detergent or fabric softener.
