SOURCE: lint trap

There should be a rectangular flap on the top panel at the rear right of your dryer. the lint filter is in a chute if there is just a hole here then the filter is missing.

SOURCE: need to know how to clean lint trap and where is

The only trap on a Kenmore Elite HE3 is in the drain pump. The following link explains how to access and clean it out:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r385844-checking_drain_pump_kenmore_elite_front

Read through the link provided and let me know if you have any questions. I personally own one of these washers and have repaired them many times. If you are experiencing drain problems, the problem will most commonly be attributed to the drain pump trap becoming clogged with debris. There's usually an error code associated with this problem of "F02". If you attempt to clean the drain pump and you discover the pump to be clear, check the drain lines (especially the line running from the bottom of the wash tub to the inlet side of the pump). If all these preliminary checks don't solve the problem, the manufacturer recommends replacing the drain pump.

If this is not what you were talking about, please post back and elaborate a bit more so I can understand the problem you are having. I hope this helps you.

check that there is a rise on the outlet pipe as if this drops onto a low level it may cause the problem you describe.

SOURCE: Where is the lint trap in Whirlpool Cabrio washer

There is no "filter" on the washer. There is, however, a drain pump that can accumulate debris and need to be cleaned out. In fact, if this is a Cabrio, there are two pumps. The following link explains how to access them and check them for obstructions:

If you have questions about this repair, please post back and let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.

NOTE: Make sure you check all drain hoses as well.

Is there a lint trap or lint filter on this washer? It is a kenmore washer model# 11022622100. I seem to remember my old washer having one inside the lip of the tub but I can not find one anywhere.


On most 110 mods there was what they called a lint trap at the bottom of the wash basket.You can;t see it without taking the basket out (ya I know dum) you will need special tool to remove basket.that filter has now been replaced by whirlpool with 4 little plugs and the so called filter is removed.You can clean the old one and unit will be fine..for that job I would say to get a pro as it takes me about 2 mins to open and will save you as a home owner a whole lot of headaches..Hope I helped and Thanks for voting

Just a note that whirlpool made that machine.

My calypso machine leave alot of lint on clothing


you have to clean the lint trap before every use. I assume that you know that. also , you need to clean the area where the lint trap is really good, so you dont have a dryer fire.

Why does my washing machine leave lint on my clothes? does this type of washer have a lint catcher?


Most washers don't have lint traps, the dryers are expected to. In your type of top loader some simple traps would be located in the top cap of the agitator. They should be cleaned each load, but they only stop the bigger pieces.

HOW DO I CLEAN OUT THE LINT TRAP ? THE MACHINE IS @ 6 YEARS OLD AND NOW I AM HAVING SEWER PROBLEMNS CAUSED BY LINT FROM THE WASHER.


I did not fix the problem, I called a plumber and fixed the sewer. So I will still have a problem with the lint trap on the washer. It is supposed to be self cleaning, but I have my doubts.
