A co-worker sold me this washer: model MAV6250Aww, ser# 20480262zu; that had just sat in storage for a while. Washed clothes came out with a lot of lint- even after a repairman "cleaned" it out. Any suggestions?

These washer are notorious for linting, there is no real solution, reduce wash time to bare minimum, try sorting clothes into different categories, whites separate washed from dark clothes, use good quality detergent. The only way to fix this problem completely is a neutral drain kit, I do not believe Maytag sells one.

SOURCE: my stakable maytag washer leaves lint marks on the

new washer have what is called a washer drain protector, in other words it's a lint catcher for washers and your model has no such part. Do you use powder or liquid detergent? It seems to me that what you see is residue from too much detergent if you use powder. I've heard others with this complaint and to no avail can figure out the cause of this, at least from a view point of a simple wash.

SOURCE: Lint in the wash water/clothes

If you have a regular tub/agitator machine you can fill 1/2 with water, add two cups of white vinegar & allow it to agitate but not empty. Give the machine a break to 'soak', then agitate again. Allow the vinegar-water to sit in the tub between rounds. Do this for the whole day (on weekend?) to give the machine a good cleaning. Often soaking in vinegar will loosen trapped debris so it can go down the drain. It will clean the machine very well even if it does not stop your lint problem. Sounds like there must be some part in the machine that got clogged w/ lint or that there is a hidden lint trap. Read the instruction booklet or try to contact the manufacturer via toll free phone or internet for troubleshooting on the problem. Good Luck!

Maytag Model # MAV6250AWW will not fill with cold water....Hot water will fill and work fine. have checked and hose is not clogged


It sounds like the cold water solenoid is not working. Test the resistance in ohms across the coil and compare with the coil on the hot water side. They should both be the same. I don't think the coils are sold separately, so you may have to get a whole new valve, but you could try asking anyway.

When i spin wash tub wigth my hand i can hear lots of water still in the machine under neath the wash basin


That is becouse most washing machines are made up of an inside drum where your clothes are washed and an outside durm that catches the water when the washer spins the water out of the washed clothes. A pump is connected to the bottom of the outside drum. If the pump fails, the water would not get pumped to the drain and would collect in the outside drum.

My expensive lg washer makes my cloths smell


Water is staying in the drum because it does not have the ability to pump put all the water. The only fix to this is after every cycle, take the little drain hose located near the bottom of the unit where you have to remove the cover, and take out the plug and drain into a small trash can. You will get about 4 cups water out of the machine. If this water is left overnight, it starts to mildew and will be washed over your next load. It's a design flaw, but this is the only solution. And one other suggestion, after you are finished washing clothes for the day and after you've drained out the remaining water, leave the door open overnight for the moisture in the unit to dry out.

Clothes are dirtier after washing...


The problem with your front load washer is a broken rear bearing. If you remove the rear panel, you will see brown "gunk" all over.
If you want to repair it on your own, order this:

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.
