Question about GE WBSR3140DW Top Load Washer
Is there a way to work around a machine w/no lint trap? The amount of lint on dark clothes is ridiculous and they are mostly garments that are not put into the dryer. I already sort the clothing by color and use the gentle cycle. I don't know the model name or number but the GE washer is older - but new to me in a place recently purchased.
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.
