    Which ring doorbell ?

    My brother wants a ring doorbell but his front door is is on a public path (straight out of his front door onto the path) so he wouldn’t want it going off every time anyone walks past but would still want it to record as it’ll pick up his car. Also he has an Alexa so instead of buying a chime...

    Anyone know why this washer won’t take the fabric conditioner away ? Its only 6 months old and under warranty but could it possibly be something we’re doing wrong. I’ve checked the filter/filter housing and the drain hose and they’re both ok. It washes ok but (see pic) this is what’s left after.
