Hi!

You can look at this as to how lint/whitening from your clothes can be removed---

This is due to un-dissolved soap and is worst in a colder climate where the cold water entering the washer is much colder than normal.

Cutting usage to 1/2 of what it says will still wash good and also cut your chances of getting "whiting" on your clothes.

Over loading the washer is another cause: Even if the agitator is suppose to go back and forth, the clothes are not. If you can hold the lid button on your washer so you can watch the clothes wash, they should 'roll" in the basket and not go back and forth like the agitator. The clothes will go down the side of the agitator, across the bottom of the basket, up the side of the basket and across the top of the water in a rolling motion. Overloading is not just too many clothes but also too little water for the size of the load is another way of having a overloaded wash load.

Water temp is also important: Use a thermometer to test the temp of the incoming water in your washer. Hot water should be close to 140 degrees F.

    Most washing machines collect lint during the wash cycle and send it down the drain during the drain cycle.
    You can collect lint in the center tube of the agitator. You need to lift out that tube and clean it periodically. Some machines have a lint filter near the top of the tub, which you need to slide out, clean off, and reinsert.

Why do my front load ge washer leave lint on the clothes?


A lot of build up from front loaders is caused from "scrud" excess detergent or constant cold water use. Place a cup full of Epson Salts in the machine and run through a hot wash cycle every 4 weeks or so and this will help keep bowl clean.

Been dealing with a smelly washer- tried the usual, bleach, vinegar, CLR.....it doesn't seem to have a lint trap.....is there one? where might it be?? Its old but works great other than this.....


Have you tried doing an empty 90 degree wash with white powder?
It does have to be white powder rather than colour powder or any kind of liquid, becauses only white powder has bleaching agents.
Add it helps if you leave the machine empty or clothes, towels etc.

Washing machine smells are usually caused by mildew, and a 90 degree wash with bleaching agents ought to help. If you do this about once a month it should keep the machine clear of mildew.

My Kenmore 22642 washer is leaving lint all over the clothes. If i run them through the dryer, that will remove the lint... but some of my clothes don't go through the dryer. I can't seem to determine if...


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.

After the wash has finished, i get a powder marks on all the clothes. is there only one setting that is a cold wash?


If you have to use cold try a liquid instead of powder or mix your powder with some hot water to disolve before adding (throw it in with the clothes before starting if it is too much for the dispenser).

White marks on my clothes.


Are you using TOO much powder? And is the machine set to the correct rinse tempature? You mention white stuff, does it look like undissolved washing powder? Or fabric softner? Possibly try liquid detergent and see if the problem continues. And follow the recommended amounts of detergent for each wash load, and the tempature settings. And of course the water levels. All of the above are crucial to insure you get maximum preformance and utility out of your machine, with the results you expect. Let us know what you find. Kindest Regards, Slats.

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.

LINT STICKS TO MY CLOTHES IN WASHER


linting is caused by a few things
firstly what sort of soap poweder do you use
i recomend good quality powder
do not wash clothes too long as what you are doing is rubbing all the fibres out of them
good quality washing powder only last about 6 minets in water and after that it looses its qualiteseg
the PH changes in the water
you may be using too little soap powder and this also depends on water quality eg too hard or soft water
is the water levels set corectly
do not mix washing
eg towels with jeans as the lint will come off onto jeans
try using delicate wash on different fabric as the adgitation is different on different cycles
try using warm wash and not cold machine is probable ok but wah times are important
good luck
