Linting is caused by a few things
firstly what sort of soap poweder do you use
i recomend good quality powder
do not wash clothes too long as what you are doing is rubbing all the fibres out of them
good quality washing powder only last about 6 minets in water and after that it looses its qualiteseg
the PH changes in the water
you may be using too little soap powder and this also depends on water quality eg too hard or soft water
is the water levels set corectly
do not mix washing
eg towels with jeans as the lint will come off onto jeans
try using delicate wash on different fabric as the adgitation is different on different cycles
try using warm wash and not cold machine is probable ok but wah times are important
good luck

Why do my front load ge washer leave lint on the clothes?

A lot of build up from front loaders is caused from "scrud" excess detergent or constant cold water use. Place a cup full of Epson Salts in the machine and run through a hot wash cycle every 4 weeks or so and this will help keep bowl clean.

Lint all over Clothing after rinse.

My washer accumulates lint between the wash tub and the outer chamber. Whenever you wash a load, all the past dried up lint gets reactivated into the new wash water.

If you get a refrigerator or dryer lint brush, you can reach this area and brush out the accumulation. Also the area above the wash tub can get clogged with lint. If you look under the lip between the tub, you can see the fabric softener/bleach channel dispenser, a lot of lint can accumulate there as well.

Clean both areas after a recent wash load when the lint has softened and is easy to scrub off. For safety's sake, unplug the washer. Be ready to be grossed out! I clean my washer every now and then to keep the lint down.

The washer will smell nice and clean after getting this lint/dirtball out. To maintain this lint free environment, see below.

If this fails and is not the problem, go to a thrift store and purchase the cheapest 100% pure wool clothing, some dark colors, and some white. The wool acts like a magnet for lint and will attach itself to the wool before it attaches to your clothes. It can be used over and over if you hang it out to dry. It will get felted and covered with lint.

Clothes have lint on them when the washing cycle is finished is there a lint area i need to clean

The newer Whirlpool top-loaders have lint screens on the inner tub and not accessible. These are supposed to self-clean during the drain cycle. I've heard that liquid fabric softener and detergent build-up may clog the screens when lint sticks to the gooey screens. Try something that will cut the goo like vinegar or ammonia in a small load level without clothes. Without clothes in the washer, that is.

Older Whirlpool washers have lint filters located above the tub, on the lid opening.

Good luck from Detroit, MI.

Wash clothes separately whites and light colors together. Darks with liquid detergent. No lint filter on the machine. I have found some powder detergents do not dissolve completely.

We have a combo dryer and washer. Washer is A2444330KH. Leaves lint on cotton shirts, have cleaned the filter no help. Any ideas? David

Dryer lint not only presents a problem by cluttering up your clothes with white specks, but it can also lead to a dryer fire. While it is impossible to completely eliminate dryer lint, you can take action to drastically reduce lint and the potential problems that come along with excess dryer lint. If your clothes take more than one cycle to dry, you see no lint on the lint screen, the clothes are very hot after drying or you find excess lint on the clothes after drying, you probably have a problem with accumulation of dryer lint in the dryer vent.
Use a dryer vent cleaning brush and clean the dryer vent, or hire a professional to clean the exhaust vent behind your dryer. If your dryer vent is clogged, it will create excess dust in the dryer and on the clothes. The excess lint can eventually catch on fire given the heat load of the dryer.

We have a Whirlpool top loading washing machine that leaves the clothes covered with lint after each load. Delicate clothes that have elastic bands are covered with pieces of lint on the bands that are...

Your service man is right, the lint is filtered through the filter plugs on the bottom of the tub, and backflushed out during the spin cycle. This does not do a great job of filtering out the lint that came out of the clothes. So why is there so much lint? Three reasons: 1. Clothes being beaten against the agitator, tub, each other. The Whirlpool washer has a pretty decent way of agitating the clothes without too much damage, as long as there is plenty of water for the clothes to move through. As long as you make sure your load size and water level are correct, this shouldn't cause a lot of lint. I always have a larger water level than the load size calls for. 2. Lower quality material in the clothes. We definitely see this a lot, especially in the cheaper towels, rugs, sweaters, ect. Some of these have such cheaply made fibers, that they put out a lot of lint. 3. Laundry soaps. Most soaps are very caustic detergents and eat the fibers right out of the linens. There are some brands of washers that still use a type of metal in them that this soap eats right up, so in a few years the machine is junk. All of the washer manufacturers went to plastic outer tubs, as the soap was literally eating holes in the outer tubs in 2 to 3 years on some brands. This is one of the reasons we have so much of the micro lint that is so fine, it goes right through your dryer lint filter and causes lint build up in the venting itself. Years ago, at our shop in Hawaii, we tested naturopathic soaps for 12 years before we settled on the Melaleuca brand for our laundry soaps. Ph neutral, cleans the clothes better than any brand we have tested before or since, does not leave the sludge in the outer tub that most brands do, does not leave a hard aggregate in the tubs like some other brands do, is cheap and does not cause the allergys, athsma, skin rashes, ect. that most of the caustic brands are doing. We have used it for over 10 years now and see very little lint in our Whirlpool washer. Look it up online, join it, and buy the soap directly from the company. It sounds like you have done everything else correctly to the washer, that you could have. I am impressed, most people could not have done what you did. Hope this helps. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists

Crosley CAWC529JQ1 top load washer LEAVES LINT ON CLOTHING

try washing on a shorter time as this washer may have too good of wash action and the lint is fabric coming off your clothing
add more soap powder and do not buy the cheapest soap as the soap is important in the washing cycle of your machine
towels that are not too soiled brobably need 6 minutes at most on wash
if this machine has a delicate wash cycle use that for tee shirts etc
water pressure is important in rinse cycles
do you have high pressure and water only trickles in check water inlets on back of machine where the hoses screw on
good luck
