Question about Maytag Atlantis MAV7260B Top Load Washer
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.

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!
