Question about Hoover HTC243 Top Load Washer
I clean the little lint bag every time I wash, however all my items still seem to come out covered with lint. Is there any other lint filter that I can check?
I suspect mayeb there's something under the agitator, but I don't know how to remove this either.
The load might be unbalanced, and will not spin at full speed as it could damage the machine. Try reloading the machine

SOURCE: cleaning washing machine filter
There is no filter on this machine. The gray gooey substance is sludge (dirt) build up inside the tub. This can be caused from using too much detergent or a detergent that is not HE (high efficiency).
You can try running an empty cycle using the hottest water available with products such as "washer fresh", "affresh" or a cup of bleach to remove the build up.
Remember to use a HE detergent and you only need about 2 tablespoons per regular load.

Most Hoovers have a 10mm bolt down inside the agitator. Remove the fabric softener dispenser from the top of the agitator, and look down the centre of agitator. You need a long extension socket to undo the bolt (anticlockwise). Be careful not to turn bolt too hard- sometimes the bolt is seized where it goes into top of gearbox, and if you turn bolt too hard, you can break the bolt. Once bolt is removed, agitator just pulls straight out

To resolve this issue you'll need to clean your top load washer. Try the steps mentioned below to clean it--
Remove the dispenser and spray with white vinegar. Then spray the agitator with it too. You can pretty much wipe it right out. Vinegar dissolves softener very quickly. The dispenser just wash out with warm water after the vinegar sits on it for a minute, and you hardly have to wipe at it at all. try adding bleach to the dispenser and clean it with a small brush.
The dispenser will pull off from the agitator and you can run hot water in it from the sink. The agitator is not as easy but has a 1/2" bolt holding it to the shaft. remove the bolt and pull up. but you can clean the whole washer with a cup of bleach and that will also clean the agitator. Now run a full tub of hot water and then add a cup of bleach with no soap. After the washer has filled up, then add another gallon of hot water and that will help to rinse out the residues that cause odors. then after that dont use too much soap and you wont have residue build up. Only use the smallest amount of soap that the cup has marked in it.
After performing all these steps if you still get lint on clothes then it is due to a clogged drain pump and/or drain filter.
