Kenmore 22062 gunk on clothes after washing

I've had this washer for 6-7 years and it works great, but lately when I pull clothes out after washing some of the laundry has a slimey gunk on it. Sometimes it's just spots of wet lint that come right off, but other times it's like sludge that is stuck in the folds. I'm wondering if there's a filter or something I need to clean?

Thanks!!

There is no trap per say. The lint catcher is self cleaning when the water is pumped out. It sounds like you are overloading it and the clothes are hitting the agitator. Operation should be agitation by water movement not beat by the plastic fins, run a wash cycle hot water no clothes to flush things out and try smaller loads.

SOURCE: Clothes come out covered in lint after washing

Sears top load / direct drive washers don't have specific Lint Filters.

See the Use and Care manual for these washers for hints.

If you experience a problem where the washer does not drain properly or the drain pump makes excessive noise, here's the information you need to check the drain pump:

Symptom: PUMP IS RUNNING, BUT NOT DRAINING PROPERLY.

1. Unplug the washer while servicing inside the unit.
2. Remove the lower kick panel under the door by removing the three 7mm screws under the bottom edge of the panel. HINT: Use a couple of blocks of wood to prop up the front feet of the washer to gain better access to the screws. Once the screws are removed the panel should drop down, and then pull off. If the panel becomes stuck, a slight tap on either side will dislodge it.
3. Locate the drain pump. It will be located directly under the wash tub (it is the only pump this washer has).
4. There is an access removal cover on the pump that can be removed to clean out the trap. BEFORE doing this, it is strongly recommended that you remove all residual water from the wash tub & drain line or you will have about a gallon or so inside your washer and on the floor to clean up.
5. Here's a helpful way of quickly removing the residual water. If you own a wet/dry shop vac, remove the drain hose from the standpipe at the wall and pull a vacuum with the shop vac. This will empty the wash tub, pump and drain lines. If you don't own a shop vac, grab a bunch of old towels and open the access on the pump slowly so that it comes out at a trickle. Allow the towels to soak up the majority of the water. Close the access and stop the water if you need to get additional towels.
6. Open the pump access and remove once you have all the water drained. Check the drain pump for foreign objects and debris. Check the pump impeller and make sure there's nothing caught in it. Items as small as toothpicks or cotton swabs have been known to stop this pump from working.
7. Clean out the pump thoroughly and reinstall the access cover. Make sure the cover is snug, but do not over tighten.
8. Place the drain hose back in the standpipe (IMPORTANT - DO NOT FORGET!).
9. With the bottom panel still off, plug the washer back in and select the following on the operator console - DRAIN SPIN, NO SPIN, and then press any button under OPTIONS 4 times (it must be the same button). "C00" will show on the console display as the washer begins diagnostics mode.
10. Check the drain pump for leaks as the washer fills. The pump is gravity filled and will hold water even it is not pumping. Allow washer to run through diagnostics until it begins the wash tub tumble cycle.
11. At this point, you can stop the diagnostics procedure by pressing PAUSE/CANCEL 2 times. The drain pump energizes and the washer will begin to drain.
12. If the drain pump works normal and there are no leaks detected, reinstall the bottom panel and tighten screws.


NOTE: It is normal to have residual water left inside the wash tub under the wash basket. This is why it is important to leave the door ajar when not in use so this water does not become sour.

Gunk gets on clothes-stains them,i pulled agitator out and cleaned it off ran bleach thru-its better but still getting on clothes


The problem may be the seal on the transmission failing. If this happens, grease from the transmission (necessary for it to function) will leak and float (recall from science class that oil is less dense that water) up into the washer. As the grease enters the tub, it stains your clothes.

Washer leaving black gunk on clothes


The agitator and s/s bowl needs to be removed for cleaning.
You need to use a pressure washer to remove buildup on s/steel bowl
The bucket aka tub needs to be cleaned also check for items that may block or jam pump at the bottom of the bucket.
reassemble your machine, it should do a better cleaner wash.

Kenmore HE2PLUS washer has a water leakage problem when washing and water just leaks from inside during the cycle. We tried to look for it and could not figure out from where it is dripping heavily. Any...


Thank God for the internet and Google! I came across this, and another thread about the same problems. I "cut and pasted" the solution below:

(another user posted this solution:) "We also had water pour out the dispenser of our 2 year old HE2 washer. Derek's answer helped us realize that a trapped garment was the probable cause. We were actually able to pull the sock out of the intake tube without taking everything apart!
We opened the clothes door and felt around inside the rubber seals to find where the intake tube connects to the drum (upper-left side). We felt a small bit of cloth sticking out of the tube and were able to slowly work it out by pulling back and forth. Once enough of the sock was exposed we used pliers to grasp it more firmly and pull it completely out.
The sock was a write-off (much longer and full of holes) but the washer is working great!!"

Word for word, we had the same exact problem. The machine started spilling water from the dispenser area and making an odd noise. We even pulled out a sock (now much longer and filled with holes!) What a relief to find these threads.

Kenmore elite 22062 wont spin makes buzzing noise


It appears your timer/main controller/CCU has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.
