For the past few months, my dark clothes are coming out of the washer with what looks like lint on them - fine, white powdery spots/splotches. Is there some kind of filter that needs to be cleaned?

Try cleaning the lint filter on the bottom of the inner opening. Lift up and clean filter.

Testimonial: "I didn't understand your solution so I searched YouTube for any instructional videos on there and found this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=djJQhM-R8JQ After watching it, I think that is what you were trying explain to me. I'm a 62-year-old woman so it wasn't quite detailed enough for me, sorry! Thanks so much for your solution though. I appreciate it!"

Check the water valve for continuity. Also check the screen on the cold water side to see if it is clogged. That is what I would do.

Spinning doesn't take place during spin cycle


One possible problem is the door interlock switch. This switch prevents spinning when the door/lid is open. If the switch is bad (open/off all the time) it sends a false signal that the door is open and washer will not spin.

Does the machine just sit there when it's not spinning or does it sound like it's trying to spin but can't?
