Do Not Wash Pull Ups in Your Whirlpool Duet Washing Machine

HA! I’m sure this is something that doesn’t even need to be said out loud right? Do Not Wash Pull Ups, diapers, pads of any kind in Your Whirlpool Duet Washing Machine or in any washing machine for that matter. At least my Whirlpool Duet Washing machine had the Clean Washer cycle where I could drop in an Affresh tablet and clean it before resuming the laundry.

Whirlpool Clean Washer Cycle

My adorable son is no longer wearing diapers, in face he’s even out of pull ups. Until a week ago he was only wearing them at night, now he’s not wearing them at all. When he was wearing them he was pretty good about putting them in the trash can every morning when he changed into his underwear. Sometimes I would find them in the floor of his room and I’d have to remind him that they go in the trash can.

Now, I go to do laundry and I sorted all of the laundry. I sort by whites, denim, pinks orange and red, and then blues greens and yellows. I did laundry as I normally would. I loaded up the blue, set the machine to wash the clothes and walked away. I actually forgot that night to move them over to the dryer which is ok because the washing machine has a keep fresh setting. That morning I remember that I need to move the clothes over. I open the washing machine door and find some gooey gunk falling off of the washing machine door. Oh, I think to myself, I must have forgotten to empty a pocket. Then I look in the machine and I see it EVERYWHERE. It was disgusting. Gooey beaded up gunk all over the clothes. Gooey messy stuff all over the rim, the door the sides of the machine. YUCK!!!!

I started pulling out the clothes and inside I found the guilty culprit. The last Pull Up he wore ended up in my washing machine. I wanted to yell at him, but it wasn’t his fault mommy put it in the washing machine. He was the good boy that picked up his clothing and put it in the laundry room. He just forgot to separate his pull up from his pants. So I had to close the laundry room door and yell at myself as I shook out all the laundry and prepared it for an Affresh cycle. At least after the machine cleaned itself I was able to resume laundry without too much work.

SIGH!!!!

  1. BOO! So sorry Louise! I hate those days and it’s almost worse when you can’t blame someone else (you know what I mean?). Well, horray for an Affresh cycle and that it all got worked out, but so sorry there was more work for you!
