    I had this problem with my Cabrio washer. Just replaced with a new Maytag and the first maiden voyage load has the lint spots on the dark clothes - I am at a loss other than to say that the high efficiency machines are the culprit - what good is saving money on the first wash if you have to re-wash. If problem persists I am trading in for a water hog.

There are many things that cause lint. Some are easy to figure out, some aren't. Here are some of the most common things: 1. Separate clothes that are lint givers from lint takers (i.e., sweaters are lint givers and should not be washed with cotton which attracts lint). 2. Check clothes pockets for tissues or paper. 3. Don't overload the machine. 4. Use enough detergent to hold the lint in suspension. Read the recommended usage on the detergent bottle. 5. Use enough water to rinse the lint away. Washing large loads on a water saver mode is not a good idea. 6. Use fabric softener to reduce static attraction of lint. 7. Washing clothes on too long of a cycle, too often can cause premature wearing of the the fabrics. I hope some of this may help you. PS Adding a cup of plain white vinegar to the rinse cycle has also been known as a "cure" for controlling lint.

CLOTHES COMING OUT OF WASHER WITH DARK STAINS


Hi Lynn, this is AP.

I understand you are seeing stains and lint on your clothes once removed from your top load washer, model FWS833A. There could be several culprits causing this to happen. To confirm, are the stains not being removed during cycle or do you believe the washer is the cause of the stains? If you believe the stains are being caused from the washer it could possibly be undiluted liquid fabric softener poured directly on fabric. Something more serious could be a broken transmission causing oil to leak in the tub.

There are some basic troubleshooting tips for lint to check such as undissolved detergent can leave residue on clothing. Separate clothing items which shed lint from items which attract lint. Permanent press, synthetic, knit and corduroy items will pick up lint from towels, rugs and chenille bedspreads. Make sure to Use correct amount of detergent, water temperature and water level.

There are some simple troubleshooting tips listed above and in your owner's manual, if you find they do not resolve your concern I would recommend contacting a local authorized technician to inspect the washer.

Thanks,

Wash clothes separately whites and light colors together. Darks with liquid detergent. No lint filter on the machine. I have found some powder detergents do not dissolve completely.

Washer leaving alot of lint on clothes


THE ONLY FILTERS YOUR WASHER HAS ARE LOCATED UNDERNEATH THE AGITATOR. REMOVE THE AGITATOR CAP AND TAKE OUT THE 7/16 BOLT DOWN IN THERE AND PULL THE WHOLE AGITATOR OUT. IN THE TUB YOU'LL SEE FOUR FILTERS AROUND THE AGITATOR SHAFT ASSEMBLY THOSE ARE THE ONLY FILTERS YOUR WASHER HAS. OTHER THAN THAT IT IS NOT THE WASHER CAUSING THIS PROBLEM. WHEN YOU WASH CLOTHES IF YOU CANNOT SEE THEM GOING DOWN IN THE TUB BY THE AGITATOR AND OTHERS COMING BACK UP ALONG THE OUTTER EDGE THEN YOU ARE OVERLOADING THE WASHER. HOPE THIS HELPS YOU.

My stakable maytag washer leaves lint marks on the


new washer have what is called a washer drain protector, in other words it's a lint catcher for washers and your model has no such part. Do you use powder or liquid detergent? It seems to me that what you see is residue from too much detergent if you use powder. I've heard others with this complaint and to no avail can figure out the cause of this, at least from a view point of a simple wash.

GE top load washer w/no lint trap leaves excessive lint


Most US-sold washers made after the mid 1980s don't have lint filters. The manufacturers weasel-word around it by saying that the lint "goes down the drain", leading people to optimistically assume that there is a self-cleaning filter in there somewhere. There usually isn't and whatever lint doesn't go down the drain is filtered by your cloths (but whatever does might clog your septic system). As a result of this scam, it's much harder to hang-dry or iron-dry clothes that haven't been hand washed. And, if you think spending $2000 on a pair of matched "front-load" style machines will solve this, you might be wrong; many of those washers still have no lint filter.

Crosley CAWC529JQ1 top load washer LEAVES LINT ON CLOTHING


try washing on a shorter time as this washer may have too good of wash action and the lint is fabric coming off your clothing
add more soap powder and do not buy the cheapest soap as the soap is important in the washing cycle of your machine
towels that are not too soiled brobably need 6 minutes at most on wash
if this machine has a delicate wash cycle use that for tee shirts etc
water pressure is important in rinse cycles
do you have high pressure and water only trickles in check water inlets on back of machine where the hoses screw on
good luck
