A woman on TikTok left many people astounded after revealing the extent of the dirt trapped in this compartment, and she urged others to make sure they don’t leave this part out when cleaning their machine.

The Mirror reports that @jessiee_marie made a video on TikTok of herself cleaning out the compartment, and the results were pretty disgusting.

The content creator saw someone else on the social media site take apart their washing machine to clean it, and so decided to take on the task herself.

On the bottom of the washing drum, the TikToker pulled on a plastic handle, which appeared to easily remove.

Captioning the post, Jessie wrote: “Saw someone do this on TikTok and I had to try it.”
