react-redux: actions do not change the store

I'm building a react app with redux and I have a problem.

I have a component connected to the redux store and even though I dispatch actions those actions are not received from the reducer thus the state won't change.

Here's the code of the component:

import React from "react";
import { connect } from "react-redux";

import { setOrderFilter } from "store/filters";

const mapStateToProps = (state) => {
    return {
        filters: state.entities.filters,

const mapDispatchToProps = {

function Filters(props) {
    const { order } = props.filters;

    console.log(setOrderFilter({test: 1}) 
    // {type: "filters/setOrderFilter", payload: {…}}
    // payload: {test: 1}
    // type: "filters/setOrderFilter"

    const handleOrder = (event) => {
        setOrderFilter({ order: });

    return (
                Date order:
                <select value={order} onChange={(e) => handleOrder(e)}>
                    <option value="ascending">ascending</option>
                    <option value="descending">descending</option>

export default connect(mapStateToProps, mapDispatchToProps)(Filters);

Here's the filters.js file in the store:

import { createSlice } from "@reduxjs/toolkit";

const slice = createSlice({
    name: "filters",
    initialState: {
        order: "descending",
    reducers: {
        setOrderFilter: (state, action) => {
            state.order = action.payload;

export const { setOrderFilter } = slice.actions;

export default slice.reducer;

Everything looks fine, even console.log the action setOrderFilter yields the correct result, but when I change the select in the UI, no action is dispatched and the value doesn't change... the console.log inside the reducer is never printed.

The store is configured with an api middleware to handle async code:

import axios from "axios";
import * as actions from "store/api";

import getBaseUrl from "helpers/getApiUrl";

const api = ({ dispatch }) => (next) => async (action) => {
    if (action.type !== actions.apiCallBegan.type) return next(action);


export default api;

The calls from other entities are printed and visible in the middleware, the one from filters are not even printed there.

What am I missing?
