Came across this video by chance. If the visible portion looks like that, I can promise you the square reinforcements would make her chuck the whole washer.


IMO hot/warm water, metal basket, spin draining and lots of detergents keeps a washer looking new the day it was installed.

I understand cleaning the external areas that get buildup overtime but there should be no need to clean the portions of the basket or agitator that remain under water during the wash cycles. Those should be clean at all times without any effort. Also notice she has two knobs missing on the console, one for the pressure sensor and the other for temperature selections. Not sure if those were removed for the cleaning process or not but I hope she doesn't have the temperature permanently set to cold/cold at all times although judging by the tub/agitator it kind of looks like it.

"IMO hot/warm water, metal basket, spin draining and lots of detergents keeps a washer looking new the day it was installed."

That GE washer is probably is set to cold/cold most of the time, the inner tub looks like plastic (could be wrong), these machines neutral drain, and she's probably using cheap detergent.

The inner tub is not only plastic, but has meshed reinforcement that holds water, lint and residue better than any lint filter ever created. Mesh can be seen here at 4:20:







The washer does neutral despite early models having a clutch.


For those that don't know, I really don't like model T washer at all. I'll leave it at that, since this is a family place. All other washers I'm ok with.
