Hi there,

you may have lint caught between the inside and outside drums but i would also check the incoming water, as it doesn't seem like you have enough coming in. check the water valves on the wall and then also the water level in your washer. im assuming you have a top loading machine.

After every wash the lent stays on the clothes


here are a few suggestions Two things that come to mind...1) Your wash time is too long. Unlike front loaders, top loaders clean quickly. No need to use the longest wash setting unless the item is really dirty.
2) You are overloading the machine. Items should move freely and circulate from top-to-bottom several times during the wash.
3) try using more detergent, One of the things good detergent does is keep lint (and dirt) suspended in the water and off your clothes. 4)http://www.ehow.com/how_2083872_clean-washing-machine-lint-trap.html

Dark clothes have lint left on them. what could help this problem?


Are you sure it is lint and not soap? My washer does this, and it looks like lint, but it is soap.
If it is lint, always keep the lint collector inside the agitator clean.

If it is soap, and this might work for lint:
1. Turn clothes, particularly black clothes, inside out.
2. Use a concentrated soap with little or no filler.
3. Use less soap than normal.
4. Fully dissolve soap before adding clothes.
5. Run rinse cycle again after completing full wash cycle.

Prblems with Kemore washer


Clean your washing machine before your next wash load to be sure there is no lint trapped anywhere in the machine. Fill the tub about half full of water then add a couple of cups of white vinegar to the wash water. Allow it to agitate and then sit there and soak for at least an hour before you empty the machine.
Lint is small fibers from clothing that have come loose from natural wear or laundering. They can build up in washers and wreak havoc on your clothing. The dryer will remove the lint. But with clothing, like dress shirts that are air-dried, this can be a real problem; often requiring multiple washings to remove the lint. Older washers came standard with removable lint traps that could be cleaned. Some would filter the water as it recycled through the washer, while others would require the removal of the center tub support for cleaning.
Newer washers have a self cleaning system that uses a filter to trap the lint and the spin cycle to flush it away. It saves the inconvenience of having to manually clean the filter.
If you have a lint problem, here are a few tips to try:
1) Low water pressure can impede the flushing action of the washer during the spin cycle. Look for pressure variations during filling of both hot and cold water. A kinked or blocked hose can cause this. Check for sediment in the hose as well.
2) Verify that the all of the water is being pumped out of tub and that no restriction in the drain hose exists.
3) Don't wash high lint producing items like socks and towels with your dress shirts.
4) Use a name brand detergent. They have higher quality cleaners and soften the water better, which helps release the bond between lint and clothing, allowing it be flushed away.
5) Don't overload the washer. Your washer needs water and room to remove the lint.
6) Run a wash cycle with a cup of regular white vinegar added. This will help rid your washer of any accumulated lint.
A washer doesn't produce enough lint to have any effect on a septic system, so a separate washer filter is not necessary.


Add a cup of either white or cider vinegar to your washing machine along with the detergent before loading in your clothes to keep lint off.

Sort out all towels and washcloths since they create lint. Put them through a separate wash cycle to keep them from transferring lint to your clothes.

Check the labels on all your clothing to be sure you sort them correctly. Cotton clothing produces lint in the washing machine while polyester clothing picks it up. Wash them at different times to keep the lint off those that are likely to pick it up.

Turn your clothes inside out before putting them into the washing machine to keep them from collecting lint as they go through the wash cycle

Washing machine lint trap


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.

Clothes come out with lint all over. i have to use a lint roller on my clothes.


Check the pockets of pants and make sure there is nothing in them ....Take a damp cloth and wipe out the inside of the drum to try to get excess lint out of it.... also run a short wash with no clothes in washer to see if it cleans the washer out certain clothes such as towels should also be washed by themselves ...........

Clothing are left with lint after washing cycles


Seperate fluffy linty clothes and wash those separately; never mix that stuff up. Also keep the dark and lights separate.I do a number of smaller loads that are in a lot of water; you get cleaner clothes and less wear. Overloads are hard on the washer and the clothes. Rots of Ruck.

Lint in washer somewhere


It probably isn't the agitator. Are you sure that it is lint and not the clothes getting torn up? One thing you might want to try is this. First take and pull the basket to one side and clean the gasket on top of the basket. There may be gunk built up on it that is transferring to your clothes. After you do that, just like a coffee maker, put about a cup of white vinegar into the washer and run a wash on hot water. After the load wash again without the vinegar just to make sure it all gets out. This is a good way to keep the washer clean all the time too, do this maybe every 3 months or so. I will clean any hard water deposits built up on the hoses and such and you will notice you clothes coming out cleaner. You can do this with your dishwasher too. Let me know if you have any other questions and if this was helpful to you at all. Good luck and I am glad that I could help you out.

The lint is not being washed from machine. All dark clothing has lint residue. How can I rectify this problem please? Currently my husband using damp cloth has to wipe over black clothing extensively prior...


the self cleaning lint filter seems to be clogged. before you replace it try this cheap/ easy remedy.
  • run a load with no clothes on high water level, hot water and a gallon or two of bleach.
  •  no soap. 
  • do an extra rinse after to make sure you rinse all the bleach away before putting more clothes in.
the lint filter may be defective since it has always had this problem, but its worth a try.
