Turns Out Washing Machines Do Eat Socks, But There Were More Surprising Things That We Found…

My husband and I are property managers, currently we are managing a manufactured home park. Most parks, like apartment complexs have laundry rooms, ours is no different.

Today, my husband got tired of fooling with one of the washing machines that was just not working properly and decided to take it apart, starting with the bottom panel. To his shock, this is what he found…

 

Socks, underwear, a credit card… and that is just what was in the bottom of the machine. When he removed the water pump that removes the water from the machine, he found about $7.00 in change.

Now, for those of you that SWEAR, your machine eats your small things, and have been told by “professionals” and others that this fable just is not true… Here is the proof!

I don’t know what to say! 25 years he has been doing this job, and for 25 years he has been working on appliances, including washers and dryers. But NEVER have we seen this!

So next time you are missing socks, just remember! That washing machine might just be hungry!
