One of the likely reasons could be a clogged drain filter. You have to take the panel in the rear out of the machine. Pull your machine out of the wall first then take out the panel. Now you must be able to see the drain pump. There is a drain filter inside this pipe. Disconnect the pipe between the pump and the tub. Clean this filter and reassemble the disconnected parts. Also, make sure the drain hose is only 6-8 inches down in the drain pipe. Put your machine back into the wall and give it a roundup. Your problem should be solved by this.

Recycle Your Laundry Detergent Bottle

Recycle Your Laundry Detergent Bottle

Go Green is the lifeline for today and tomorrow. Many households and businesses has adopted this lifestyle and made it a routine to recycle newspapers, glass and aluminum cans. Recycled plastic is also used in most of the detergent and fabric softener bottles. Still, there is a lot more that could be done!

Recent reports of dosomething.org reveal that an average person produces 1.5 tons of solid waste per year and a little over 4 pounds of garbage per day. Astonishingly EPA approximates that around 75% of the waste Americans make is recyclable, of which only a mere 30% is recycled.

Recycling isn’t just throwing stuff into the recycle bin but it’s a little more thought provoking process.  So when you’re about to recycle your laundry detergent bottles remember the below things. Cleaning Institute Website suggests a few ideas and tips.

  1. Don’t leave a drop in the bottle. Well you must be thinking its common sense but trust us it’s not. Most people do not consume the entire detergent bottle and throw it away. Get rid of it and pour it down the drain if the product is designed to be used with water.
  1. Make sure it’s clean. Rinse it out!
  1. Identify the type of plastic by checking the code on the bottom of the bottle. This will tell you if the product is accepted by your recycling community.
  1. Very few communities accept caps and pump spray tops. Check if yours does. You’ll most likely have to find another way to use them of have them disposed separately.
  1. Check for any label removal requirements by your community. Though most communities’ rules allow you to leave labels on empty bottles but it’s always better to check.
  1. Save space on the pickup truck. Flatten out or squash your bottles, if you can.
