    The wife has gone barmy at me for making the washing machine smell like death due to my muddy biking gear. I rinse off as much mud as possible off my shorts when cleaning my bike down, but the W/M stinks! I’ve used one of those Dr Beckmann cleaners at 90 degrees but it now smells even worse. Any proven fixes you can suggest for me?

    Cheers!

    Take the filter out and clean that. Also clean the powder tray

    Soak all the stuff first overnight with some detergent, then wash

    Does other washing now smell like death one washed? If yes cannot help. If no then what is the problem?

    Ps New washing machine is definitely cheaper than new wife.

    Try a dishwasher tablet through on a hot wash – never done this myself but heard it works

    Half a litre of urine in the softener compartment will sort it right out.

    If you’ve been using liquitabs, gel or other liquidy-type detergent then stop. Hot wash or two with the cheapest bio POWDER you can get should see it right. And try to use powder instead of the liquid detergent on a regular basis. For some reason if we use only the liquid stuff it always ends up making our machine stink.

    2nd 95′ with Bio powder. This MUST be done regularly to clean the pipes.

    This – Liquids etc make machines stink. Use powder and it will be gone. Blame the wife NOW for buying the wrong detergent ๐Ÿ˜ˆ

    We have different interpretations of. ‘The wife’s given me a roasting’

    bleach wash

    gives you a chance to make some old towels white again too.

    Apologise profusely and tell your wife that since you’re clearly not to be trusted, in future you’ll leave the washing for her to do 8)

    put a dead tramp in the washing machine and blame it in him (or her).

    You may need to kill the tramp first though.

    I told mrs Ricky to leave my biking gear in the shed after a muddy ride last week so I could brush them down first but she ignored me and told me I was being stupid and soft and a washing machine is for washing clothes and iff washing clothes fยฃ@&s it up then the washing machine isn’t good enough therefore we need a new one……….ah right,yes see what you mean ๐Ÿ˜•

    I get told the vacuum and washing machine are power tools.

    I wittily retort ‘**** off.’

    Put the cassette and chain in the dishwasher and put some tyres in the washing machine

    The wife’s reaction to that will make this one seem ok
