No but it sound like the agitator has a sharp edge and chewing up the cloths feel your finger all the surface area of the plastic and feel for a gouge or rough area then get sandpaper or other type of item that will smooth it out and that should stop the fluff issue

certain materials give off fluff and some others seem to attract it. you can try putting in similar materials together and avoid mixing turkish bath towels, blankets and jackets and such clothes having fluffy lining with normal clothes. Also try selecting higher water level (overriding the automatic selection) manually. Once when i had fluff on clothes, it turned out to be tissue paper from my child's jeans pockets. After cleaning the filter bag, run the machine empty at maximum water level every week. Hope one of these will help solve your problem.

Clothes look drab after washing them.


Is the machine new or old? How long has this been a problem? Has this been occuring slowly or has it started suddenly? Before you give blame to the machine, I suggest you wash your clothes at a laundromat or a friend/relative washing machine to see the results you get. Also, the detergent could be partially at fault especially if you use too little or too much (too much will cause a film to build-up on the clothes that cannot be washed away enough durung rinse). IF AFTER TRYING THESE SUGGESTIONS YOU STILL HAVE THE PROBLEM, open the lid while your Maytag is washing to see if the water level is sufficient and to see if the aggitator is moving; note- you may have to open quickly and check very fast to see if there is aggitation movement because some models stop the washing if you open lid (all models stop the rinse/spin action if you open lid.Goodluck, Macgivor

My dryer is very noisy and it vibrates a lot when it is on.


Never use a Dryer that does not run smooth!

Dryers have a knack of collecting vast amounts of clothing shed fluff which collects like a cobwebbed house a century old.!
These are fire hazards waiting to ignite.
Get a techo to check it out and quote you for a service.

You have taken the necessary steps to reduce the lint problem. It seems they have not worked sufficiently. Another lint factor is due to HARD WATER.
You may have to disassemble the washer and remove the inner wash tub. On the bottom of the wash tub is a self cleaning lint filter. It may be gummed up with detergent and lint not allowing it to do its job. It will have to be manually cleaned.

Hi,

To my knowledge, on most (but not all) washing machines, lint/fluff are collected on the wash cycle and flushed down with the water during drain cycle.

Since your machine is a Maytag, it is different. On most Maytag washing machines, lint/fluff is collected in the center tube of the agitator. It wold be necessary to lift out said tube and thereafter clean it on a regular basis. Some other models have a lint filter near the top of the tub, which you need to slide out, clean off, and reinsert. If for some reason there is no lint/fluff filter in your machine, this page shows how one can be made.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Black Stains on my whites


At the end of the cycle, the wash plate nutates for
approximately 30 seconds to fluff the clothing after the
final spin. The action of fluffing causes the outer wash
plate seal to rub against the stainless steel basket while
they are both relatively dry. This condition causes the gray
discoloration.
RESOLUTION:
An updated machine control, part number 8542693, is
now available. The updated control reduces the fluff time
from 30 seconds to 8 seconds, allowing the clothing to be
fluffed, without causing discoloration.
Gray marks or smudges can be washed out of clothing
after wiping down the basket. The consumer should use
the recommended amount of HE detergent and the hottest
water safe for the fabric or hand wash the garment under
running water. In either case, the fabric must be cleaned
prior to running through the dryer
