SOURCE: lint trap

There should be a rectangular flap on the top panel at the rear right of your dryer. the lint filter is in a chute if there is just a hole here then the filter is missing.

run a load with no clothes with hot water and a gallon or two of bleach.
do an extra rinse cycle a couple times to make sure the bleach is rinsed out completely.

Clothes have lint on them when the washing cycle is finished is there a lint area i need to clean


The newer Whirlpool top-loaders have lint screens on the inner tub and not accessible. These are supposed to self-clean during the drain cycle. I've heard that liquid fabric softener and detergent build-up may clog the screens when lint sticks to the gooey screens. Try something that will cut the goo like vinegar or ammonia in a small load level without clothes. Without clothes in the washer, that is.

Older Whirlpool washers have lint filters located above the tub, on the lid opening.

Good luck from Detroit, MI.

Hi I have a Maytag Atlantis MAV975OA top loader. I cannot find a lint filter anywhere and my washing is coming out covered in lint. Can you tell me where the lint filter is so I can clean it? Thankyou


Hi gmallard, it doesn't have a lint collector. This machine is a piece of junk. We're going out today to buy a new one after years of brushing down our clothes with lint brushes. I'll put the Maytag in the shed to wash my dogs pillows etc. (about all it's good for)

My front loader isnt rinsing my clothes damp


Check to see if the lint filter is overfilled. If so, simply slide it out and remove accumulated lint. Next, check if the exhaust tube from which hot air is expelled is blocked. Clean it out as best as you can - it's possible that a bunch of lint has accumulated inside.

Why does my washing machine leave lint on my clothes? does this type of washer have a lint catcher?


Most washers don't have lint traps, the dryers are expected to. In your type of top loader some simple traps would be located in the top cap of the agitator. They should be cleaned each load, but they only stop the bigger pieces.

Lint Filter in Whirlpool Agitator washing Machine


I have a regular top loader and the lint filter is on the underside of the inner tub. You have to remove the inner tub to get to it. You might be able to find a service manual explaining this at appliancejunk.com.

Excessive lint on clothes and smell


There is many solutions that work some. The best analogy I have seen is to reduce the wash time as the newer soaps are more efficient at removing dirt which also softens the fabric. Any excess in soap regardless of type in combination with water type will cause an odor, why is the contaminents in the water plus the junk on are clothes to be polite. It builds up under the basket and along the top water line in the tub plus creates a film from the tub through the hoses, pump and house drain. Lint is a product of excess washing and too much soap. Whirlpool stated for there front loaders no more than two TBL of liquid soap which is like 3/8 cup max for the old top loader. SearsTechToo
