    Do you know the year your washer was made ? If so you can go to the fisher and paykel website to look up the users guide wich will give instructions on how to clean the automatic lint system.

Fisher & Paykel washers do not have lint filters inside the tubs as they are designed to drain away any debris from the wash during the drain cycle.

Fisher Paykel sells a drop in lint filter assembly which you simply place in the center tower before you add detergent. Works very well but you do need to take it out after each wash and clean it. We've been using on for two years and have not had a repair bill in that time where we were having one a year to clean the water pump or diverter valve.

Try the following- use high quality detergent- like tide. Do a full wash with nothing in it every now and then, separate lights and darks and towels/fluffy stuff from synthetics, use a less rigorous wash- like wool or permanent press

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.

Hi there, i have recently purchased a maytag atlantis washing machine 2nd hand model MAV7750BGW,great machine only its leaving lint on cloths and i dont have a manual for it,can you please...


Hi,

To my knowledge, on most (but not all) washing machines, lint/fluff are collected on the wash cycle and flushed down with the water during drain cycle.

Since your machine is a Maytag, it is different. On most Maytag washing machines, lint/fluff is collected in the center tube of the agitator. It wold be necessary to lift out said tube and thereafter clean it on a regular basis. Some other models have a lint filter near the top of the tub, which you need to slide out, clean off, and reinsert. If for some reason there is no lint/fluff filter in your machine, this page shows how one can be made.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
