This often is called "lint" but is really a "whiting" left by un-dissolved soap and can be seen at it's worst on dark colored clothes. This is made worse in a colder climate where the cold water entering the washer is much colder than normal. Things that can effect the quality of the finished washed products.
Too much soap: ( we have a test for this further down the page ) If you follow the manufactures instructions on the box, then chances are you ARE using too much soap. They like to sell you their product, I find cutting usage in 1/2 of what the box says will still wash good and also cut your chances of getting "whiting" on your clothes.

Does it agitate and does the door lock light come on? Theres a panel on the back you can take off via 4 screws. Here you can check the belt and watch to see if it spins or moves at all. If the door lock light comes on, and you here the door click. Than chances are your motor control board is bad. Seen this many times. Im actually replacing one tomorrow on the exact washer.I believe the part # is 22004045. Heres a diagram. If the door doesnt lock than you need either a lock assy or a new computer for it. The computer is in the top panel where the timer is. If you look at it you should see a burnt resistor. If no burnt resistor than its more likely th lock assy. Ill try and find the part # for the lock and computer, and a digram. Hope this helps. Dave www.washermd.com

The previous poster was right, the spin speeds on front loaders are incredible. You almost don't have to dry! This is most noticable with heavier clothes, like jeans, especially new ones! This will help a lot: When you take your clothes out of the washer, pop, shake or fluff the wrinkled garment pretty good before you toss it in the dryer. Using a dryer softener sheet will lessen the effect as well. You can also select a lower spin speed, and make up the moisture difference in the dryer. Try shaking the clothes first as this is less expensive than operating the dryer, then back off of the spin speeds as your pocketbook allows!

Error LR means Locked Rotor.
Either the motor is faulty, there is a wiring problem, or the control assembly is faulty.
Try tripping the circuit breaker to reset the machine, if code comes back a technician must have a look at the motor.
