A TikToker has gone viral for her shocking washing machine discovery — and parents everywhere are running to their laundry room to check theirs. When Edith Grey, known on TikTok as @edi.grey, posted her startling video online, she never expected it to amass over 10M views or 1.4M likes. "So I saw on TikTok people cleaning their filter pumps, or whatever? Their filters for their washers?" Edith starts out her video by saying. Edith then begins removing the filter, a bowl and towel at the ready beneath the opening. "Water started coming out, and it literally smells so bad. I can't even describe it.

I’ve had my washer 12 years..." another user queried
