Excessive lint on clothes and smell

After washing, the clothes have excessive lint on them. a real fine covering which is next to impossible to get off. is there a lint filter is the washer somewhere that should be cleaned? also the tub seems to smell funny even though I wash clothes everyday and occassionally clean with vinegar and hot water. Help!!!

    There is excessive lint on clothes after every wash - I have no idea what the source of the lint is; no matter what I wash or what temperature or what type of detergent, there is lint on the clothes. I was hoping there was some sort of filter that was malfunctioning that I could fix

    The writing above the controls is fast wearing off. Cannot read it. the front of the machine and no filter seems to be fitted. doesn't wash clothes clean.

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

You might want to check out some washing machine repair videos (www.youtube.com/watch?v=djJQhM-R8JQ). I had a problem with excessive lint in the washer and didn't know where the lint filter was located so I could clean it. Or whatever. The video I watched was very clear and well presented. I identified my washing machine's problem & the solutioon. There is no "one size fits all" solution. All these washing machines are different.

I just repaired a roper dryer for some folks. they where complaining of the same things.. mostly the lint problem. i used to do repairs many years ago but this is the first one of the ropers i have dealt with.. i took a look at the washer.... from what i can see there is no lint filter at all on the ras models
i pulled the agitator and it was clean under it.. my suggestion to them is you will have to lighten the loads as the machine starts to age... the pump is starting to wear and not pulling the water off as fast
when the water has time to settle as it is being pulled down its leaving that fine lint.
it looks to me like whirlpool has done away with the good filter canister of years past.. new pumps might be the only answer.. try remembering when your machine started doing it.. at 1yr. or 3 years.. theres is about 2 years.. just started noticing it...
i have a 30 year old kenmore.. made by whirlpool... it squeaks.. howls.. just sounds terrible.. but it still out washes anything on the market... good luck with the new junk.. hope this helps

Cant't help you with the lint. only filter is the drain pump filter which you should check regularly. are you using liquid detergent? if so this can be the source of the smell. put on hottest wash and use powder

We have a combo dryer and washer. Washer is A2444330KH. Leaves lint on cotton shirts, have cleaned the filter no help. Any ideas? David


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.

We have a bad smell like sulphur or perm when we use our washing machine. We had the water softner checked and it is fine. What can we do?


The filter on your pump is probably clogged with lint and stuff. You have to remove the bottom front panel, 3 torx screws underneath. The panel will drop and come off. Drain off the excess water from the hose you see. The white filter cover is right in front. Get yourself a bunch of towels or a good big plastic bag to collect water. Unscrew the filter cover and twist the filter out. Clean out all the stuff and put it back in carefully.

Next: You can use Affresh to clean your front loader. Deposits of soap and other such things can be stuck around the inside tub of your washer. Try this product, it works great on all front loaders. Use hot water with the Affresh pellet with no clothes and run the machine through a cycle. Also helps with any stagnant water smells. Have you cleaned out your pump lately. Put the pellet inside the machine, not in the soap dispenser.
Pl give me a good rating for the free help, thanks.

I have Kenmore Series 80 electric dryer. The clothes no longer have that good smell when they come out of the dryer. What can I do to get that fresh laundry smell? The clothes smell fresh when they go in...


There may be a build up of excess lint in the inner tubes. You can remove the vent pipe and visually examine the tube. The build up of lint will cause odor if its excessive and could be hazardous. You may want to unplug the dryer and vacuum the tube out if possible. P.S: The best way to get that fresh smell is to use an outdoor clothesline.. and save energy too! lol

On some models the filter is located ‘inside’ the big hose from the bottom of the tub. This takes more time to clean.

Next run your washer with 2 cups of bleach, hot water. After it starts agitating stop the washer & let it remain for 2 hours. Then continue the wash.
