Hi all,

Finally got the gumption to pull out my washer and see about cleaning up the inlet screens. But what are these? Can't get em out.. are they meant to come out?

Thanks in advance!

Yessir. Thing is there is what seems like a plastic "pin" in the center leading me to believe that it might be permanently affixed to the rest of the plastic screen, keeping it from separating from the inlet valve.

Newfangled washer.. wouldn't surprise me if it's by design to have to replace the whole valve.. hope not! :)
