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. Ooh, no
no no no!" she shrieks as she pulls out the filter.
According to FamilyHandyman.com, your
washing machine filter should be cleaned
as regularly as the lint trap on your dryer.
But, judging by the TikTok comments,

"Everyone frantically running to their
