Did you sort properly? sort lint givers(towels) form lint takers(syenthetics)

did you over load the washer? the wash load must be balanced clothes should move freely in the water

did you select to correct water level?

did you suse enough detergent? use enough detergent to hol the lint in the water

Did you line dry your clothing? if so you can expect some lint on clothing?

check the following:
was paper or tissue left in the pockets

is your water colder than 70 decrees F washe water colder than 70 decrees may not completely dislolve detergent

did you use the proper cycle time for the load? reducing the wash time is another way to reduce lint

My clothes are covered in lint


Hello Pam, Take the lint screen over to the sink and gently wash it in dish soap and water. Let it dry and try it. Sometimes the small holes in the lint screen plug up from using fabric softener and/or fabric softener sheets. It doesn't take much to restrict the airflow through the lint screen.

Model 41798702891 Kenmore stacked washer/dryer is collecting lint inside the door and putting lint onto the clothes.


I am not much of an expert with dryers but i'll give it a stab. Should there be a filter that catches the lint so that it does not go all over the clothes? Have you got the manual. If not, see if you can find the manual online and see if there is anything mentioned about a lint filter.

Clothes are collecting a lot of lint when washing. Is there a lint filter? I have already tried running vinegar through a cycle.


not knowing the make and model,, I can offer you this ,, if your machine actually has a lint trap it will be located right before the pump under the machine, also,, try using a little more detergent, this helps cut down on the lint left in the machine and on clothes, if you reply to this feed i will try and locate your machine and check on the filter

The lint collector is no longer collecting lint...the lint is sticking to the front door and covering the clothes..there is plenty of heat but whatever part exhausts and collects lint isn't ...


It sounds as if you have a significant clog in the exhaust... I am very surprised that it is still working; please investigate for a clog in the exhaust line.

Black lint on white clothes after wash. have cleaned filter. is a front loader.


Check both the apron, located in front of the drum for lint residue, as well as the drum itself for sharp points (gouges) which may have snagged clothes and collected the lint to the inner side of the drum. Also try running a full cycle with no load to clear any lint which may remain in the outer (non visible) drum.

Hair/Lint collecting on the Baffles of the dryer


I once heard you can periodically spray "Spray Starch" on the baffles themselves to alleviate lint and hair buildup. If you can prevent the unwanted particles from building up on the baffles theoretically they should be trapped in the dryer's lint collector.

My dryer keeps burning my clothes


I recently solved this problem on my dryer by taking apart the lint collection area. Some dryers allow you to do this by removing a couple screws surrounding the lint screen holder. Others require some dis-assembly of the top and front panel.
Once you have access behind or below the lint screen, use your hands or a strong vacuum (shop-vac) to clean out any collected lint that has fallen below the collection screen and settled in the exhaust duct. I pulled out about 100 cubic inches (~1.6 liters) of collected lint, cat hair, and debris that was obstructing air flow.
Obstructed airflow can cause metal parts near the heating element to overheat and scorch clothing and is a serious fire hazard.

Our GE gas dryer is burning clothes that are fleece fabric or blankets. Any suggestions?

Lint on dark clothes


no product i know of , try running machine without cloths with hot water and a lot of extra soap the unrestricted water movement and extra soap lubricates and helps to flush machine out, let machine dishcharge into bucket and if poor flow or lots of debris run again and see if this clears up you issue
