Fluff left on clothing

I was wondering is there a lint trap to empty on this model or is there any way to stop fluff gathering on all my clothes especially dark loads

    Mine does too. Fabric softener is not the answer as that stuff is flammable and toxic. Maytag suggested running a hot wash (obviously without washing in it) with a dishwasher tablet through it once a month.

    We have given up washing anything dark in the machine - it's quicker to wash by hand rather than spend the time defluffing the clean clothes.



    The machine has to go!



    I have tried using a no clothes wash - that still doesn't get rid of the fluff in the machine

    I've had the same problem since buying my machine 12mths ago. Maytag suggested I fill the machine with hot water (no clothes), add 2-3 cups of Epsom salts and let it agitate for 10mins. Stop the machine, then let it sit for at least 8hrs (i.e. do it overnight). Afterwards, run the full wash cycle to cleanse.

Fluff on clothes


Some washing machines have a filter usually bottom right hand corner, you can clean this out.

They do say every once in a while to run the machine empty on a boil wash and add a little bleach or try some of these commercialised cleaners that remove limescale etc it cant do any harm.

Do this once or twice if its still bad the only thing i would suggest is to get a new one.

Is there a lint filter i am getting white fluff on black and dark coloured items


if it is a top loader ( type and make not mentioned ) the lint filter is at the bottom of the center section of the tub spindle
just pull that section up and the filter is at the bottom
check for paper left in pockets ( tissues, dockets etc) as paper appears as white fluff on clothes

Speedqueen does not wash clean. Always white fluff on clothes. Is there a filter to clean


Clean you 'lint filter' - see your instruction booklet or if you don't have it google your washing machine model and see where the lint filter is and how to clean it. It's usually a small pouch on top on the steel drum that you have to slide out and clean.
Hope this helps.

I have a LG Fuzzy logic for a year and a half now, model WF-8071TTP top loader. it seems that after washing all my clothes are full of fluff. I have cleaned out the filter bag, and all little filters at...


certain materials give off fluff and some others seem to attract it. you can try putting in similar materials together and avoid mixing turkish bath towels, blankets and jackets and such clothes having fluffy lining with normal clothes. Also try selecting higher water level (overriding the automatic selection) manually. Once when i had fluff on clothes, it turned out to be tissue paper from my child's jeans pockets. After cleaning the filter bag, run the machine empty at maximum water level every week. Hope one of these will help solve your problem.

On top of the element is a limit that blows if the venting or ductwork is clogged from fluff. I have a few repair photos HERE

How do I removethe lint? Clothes are coming out with fluff...


Sorry for the obvious.....
Fluff on the cloths is from the lint trap not capturing it from the air flow.
Air is passed into the clothes from the laundry room. It is heated and then passed over the clothes... then filtered air is forwarded to the outside exhaust.

If you are seeing lint on your clothes, then the air coming in from your laundry area is not lint free.
1. check the back/bottom of the dryer for lint accumulation.
2. Remove the lint trap and clean out the duct work.
3. Inspect all the flooring and areas around the dryer for dust/lint - and clean any that you find.

I believe that you will then have a clean and dry load.
The proceedure of cleaning described above should be repeated every 6 months or so....
