Either the link came from another part of the clothing, or it is in the little bit of water that is under the tub or in the drain screen and gets washed back up when water fills.

I wash all my darks together. No fuzzy stuff either with the black items. Don't overload as I am only person doing laundry. Why the lint left on the clothes. Kenmore Elite Series 600. Please help.


Your Kenmore washer does not have a lint filter. Washers manufactured today and in the past few years are not designed with lint filters. The engineers rely on the dryer to remove any lint left on the clothes that doesn't get flushed down the drain.


overload the washer? The wash load must be balanced and not overloaded. Clothes should move freely.

Lint can be trapped in the load if overloaded. Wash smaller loads.

Use the correct water level? The water level should be correct for the load size. Clothes should move freely in the water.
Alsp liquid detergent works better in cold water and has modifiers to keep lint in the water not on the cloths.

Do you line dry your clothing? If so, you can expect some lint on the clothing.

Check the following too

Was paper or tissue left in the pockets?

Use the proper cycle time for the load? Reducing wash time (duration) is another way to reduce lint.

these should help in reducing the amount of lint left on your clothes.
Thank the wonderful engineers for this problem.
There is one other thing you can do. Micro fiber cloths attract lint like nothing else. Inexpensive ones added to a wash load will catch almost all the lint.
found this out the hard way by trying to clean some that I used in auto body seminars for removing polish and waxes when doing detailing demos. they came out full of lint when washed in a mixed load,..looked worse than they did dirty. well sort of..they were still good for what i wanted them to do but looked like heck. :) if rewashed alone they cleaned up.
hope I helped a little.

Washer leaves white lint like spots all over dark clothes.


This happens to me as well but only when I overload my washer or when my washer needs to be ran thru its cleaning cycle.

After every wash the lent stays on the clothes


here are a few suggestions Two things that come to mind...1) Your wash time is too long. Unlike front loaders, top loaders clean quickly. No need to use the longest wash setting unless the item is really dirty.
2) You are overloading the machine. Items should move freely and circulate from top-to-bottom several times during the wash.
3) try using more detergent, One of the things good detergent does is keep lint (and dirt) suspended in the water and off your clothes. 4)http://www.ehow.com/how_2083872_clean-washing-machine-lint-trap.html

Excessive lint on washed clothes


Your washer does not have a lint filter, so it's very important to sort lint givers from the lint takers. Washers today to not have lint filters because we rely on the dryer to remove lint that does not get pump out with the wash water.

Below are tips taken directly out of the user's manual:


  • Did you sort properly? Sort lint givers (towels, chenille) from lint takers (corduroy, synthetics). Also sort by color.
  • Did you overload the washer? The wash load must be balanced and not overloaded. Clothes should move freely. Lint or powdered detergent can be trapped in the load if overloaded. Wash smaller loads.
  • Did you select the correct water level? The water level should be correct for the load size. The load should be under water.
  • Did you use enough detergent? Follow manufacturer's directions. Use enough detergent to hold the lint in the water.
  • Did you line dry your clothing? If so, you can expect some lint on the clothing. The air movement and tumbling of a dryer removes lint from the load.
  • Was paper or tissue left in the pockets?
  • Is your water colder than 60°F (15.6°C)? Wash water colder than 60°F (15.6°C) may not completely dissolve the detergent.
  • Did you use the proper cycle time and agitation speed for the load? Reducing wash time (duration) and agitation speed are ways to reduce lint.

Have had machine for 3 yrs - had no problems until recently when there now is a li\ot of lint on the clothes. i have changed detergents but this has not helped


If you have a lint problem, here are a few tips to try:
1) Low water pressure can impede the flushing action of the washer during the spin cycle. Look for pressure variations during filling of both hot and cold water. A kinked or blocked hose can cause this. Check for sediment in the hose as well.
2) Verify that the all of the water is being pumped out of tub and that no restriction in the drain hose exists.
3) Don't wash high lint producing items like socks and towels with your dress shirts.
4) Use a name brand detergent. They have higher quality cleaners and soften the water better, which helps release the bond between lint and clothing, allowing it be flushed away.
5) Don't overload the washer. Your washer needs water and room to remove the lint.
6) Run a wash cycle with a cup of regular white vinegar added. This will help rid your washer of any accumulated lint.
A washer doesn't produce enough lint to have any effect on a septic system, so a separate washer filter is not necessary.

Heavy towels don't come clean & smell of mildew - all whites and colours are gray after bleach has been used.


Did you add detergent to the dispenser?
For best results, add detergent to the detergent
compartment. Do not add detergent to the washer drum.
 Did you sort properly?
Sort lint givers (towels, chenille) from lint takers (corduroy,
synthetics). Dye transfer can occur when mixing whites and
colors in a load. Sort dark clothes from whites and lights.
 Did you overload the washer?
Do not overload the washer. The washer can be fully loaded,
but not tightly packed. The wash load must be balanced. Lint
can be trapped in the load if overloaded.
 Check the following:
Was paper or tissue left in pockets?
 Did you use enough HE detergent?
Follow manufacturer’s recommendations for the type of load
you are washing. For best performance, use only High
Efficiency detergent. Use enough HE detergent to remove soil
and hold it in suspension.
 Do you have hard water?
Use more detergent for washing heavy soils in cold or hard
water.
 Is your water colder than 60°F (15.6°C)?
Wash water colder than 60°F (15.6°C) may not completely
dissolve the detergent. Use hot or warm washes if safe for the
fabric load. Make sure your hot water system is adequate to
provide a hot water wash.
 Have you run the Clean Washer Cycle lately?
To freshen your washer and to avoid odors, see “Cleaning
Your Washer.”
 Are you using HE detergent?
Use of non-HE detergent can cause a film residue which can
result in odor.
 Did you leave the door open after use?
This washer has a tight seal to avoid water leaks. To avoid
odors leave the door open to allow the washer to dry
between uses.

LG WM-3677HW dryer cycle does not dry and lasts for 3 minutes


Press "end of cycle". Plug off the wall. Code can be an indication of several issues. The most common cause is over-sudsing in the machine. Overloading the wash with too much laundry may also cause the LE error code. Lastly, a breakdown in the signal between the microprocessor and the motor may cause that error code. This can occur if there is a loose wire, see that all wires are tightened..........
And rate me pl ...........if helped.
