I have noticed that once a wash is completed and the clothes dry that there seem to be excess fluff/fibres left on them(especially noticeable on dark garments.)
Reading through the manuel i found that you have to clean the filter at least once a month and thought that this may have been the problem,however i now check this on a weekly basis and clean it if it looks clogged up but i still finding that the clothes have fluff remaining on them.
Any help would be appreciated.

Re: Excess fluff on clothes
You should clean filter after every load. If dryer is getting unusually hot (cabinet), then you may have a plugged vent line. Check where vent is on the outside and see if plenty of air is coming out of it. If not it is plugged up

I understand your Frigidaire air conditioner, model# FAC105P1A, is not cooling as well as it used to. Please try cleaning the air filter as well as the cabinet.
Air Filter Cleaning:
The air filter should be checked at least once a month to see if cleaning is necessary. Trapped particles in the filter can build up and cause an accumulation of frost on the cooling coils.
• Push the vent handle to the Vent Closed position (where applicable).
• Open the front panel.
• Grasp the filter by the center and pull up and out.
• Wash the filter using liquid dishwashing detergent and warm water. Rinse filter thoroughly. Gently shake excess water from the filter. Be sure filter is thoroughly dry before replacing.
• Or, instead of washing you may vacuum the filter clean.
• Be sure to unplug the air conditioner to prevent shock or fire hazard. The cabinet and front may be dusted with an oil-free cloth or washed with a cloth dampened in a solution of warm water and mild liquid dishwashing detergent. Rinse thoroughly and wipe dry.
• Never use harsh cleaners, wax or polish on the cabinet front.
• Be sure to wring excess water from the cloth before wiping around the controls. Excess water in or around the controls may cause damage to the air conditioner.
• Plug in air conditioner.
I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your appliances status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.
Dryer lint not only presents a problem by cluttering up your clothes with white specks, but it can also lead to a dryer fire. While it is impossible to completely eliminate dryer lint, you can take action to drastically reduce lint and the potential problems that come along with excess dryer lint. If your clothes take more than one cycle to dry, you see no lint on the lint screen, the clothes are very hot after drying or you find excess lint on the clothes after drying, you probably have a problem with accumulation of dryer lint in the dryer vent. Use a dryer vent cleaning brush and clean the dryer vent, or hire a professional to clean the exhaust vent behind your dryer. If your dryer vent is clogged, it will create excess dust in the dryer and on the clothes. The excess lint can eventually catch on fire given the heat load of the dryer.
2 simple checks for you with this problem often when there is excess water left in your cloths after a wash its due to a reduction in the outlet (waist) so i would surgest checking the waist pipe & drainige connections for excess lint as this can reduce the amount of water getting out & leaving it in your cloths or machine.
This sounds like excess steam in the drum. Check that the drain filter is clean as washer driers rely on cold water being taken in to cool the condenser tank during the drying cycle. If the filter is clear, the tank may be blocked with fluff. You have to open the machine a look for a big plastic tank, usually down the right hand side.
it sounds as tho water is getting intyo machine after use. there are 2 possible causes.
inlet valve leaking. turn water off and see if this stops water accumulating. if it does, then you need to replace valve to cure.
if drain is plumbed into spigot on sink trap then every time you drain sink, some of the water goes down the drain hose.
to cure, take the drain hose up as high as possible in a swan neck
Its normal for water to collect in the seal folds. The main thing is to dry it out completely. Take a dry cloth or sponge and try to remove excess water. Leave the door open to dry it out. You can even use a de-mould agent spray (many varieties available in the market). The main idea is to kepp the folds dry.
