    Hello
    My washer had been standing for 6 months and I agve it to my sister. She ran a maintenance wash and water was leaking from the drawer and it was gritty. When we stopped it and opened the door it was full of gravel, what looked liked fish tank gravel

    Can anyone shed a light on this its very weird

    Thanks

    some kids threw a handfull of sand into it? How else would it have got there? Did you wash clothes after going to the beach 6 months ago?
