- Do dirty post ride clothes damage the washing machine?? Need evidence for wife?
We have had a bosch washing machine since I went back to Uni in 2000 and has moved to Devon since – and touch wood its been fine – no blocked filers, no problems to speak of (touching wood) – is a tiny bit rusty but we have chucked everything in it and often overload it and generally abused it and nada. Go figure?Posted 8 years agoSprocketJockeyMember
Same as above comments really…. we've got an 8 year old Bosch, which has taken a complete beating. Muddy riding gear, trainers, wetsuits, and now the 3 daily washes demanded by our 7 month old (his clothes, that is, not him personally), and its still going strong.
This has however been a timely reminder for me to to check the filter!Posted 8 years agomissingfrontallobeMember
I'll say maybe; we've had three washing machiones during our 14 year marriage, the associated crap of washing MTB kit may have contributed to premature demise of these machines, although m;lud, engineers have never attributed a breakdown to what has been washed.Posted 8 years agovalleydaddySubscriber
If I can be bothered I'll rinse my kit off before bunging it in the machine or I wang it in straight out of tug bucket before the misses notices, then just wipe door seals down and voila clean kit 🙂
just a pain in the arse you can't tumble dry most mtb gear 😥 so always draped over rads etcPosted 8 years ago
