Need replacement lint filter

Hello, Sorry to bother by this means but I've looked everywhere and can't seem to find where I can purchase a replacement lint filter for our LG 3step turbo drum clothes washer. The part number on the filter is 5231FA2239 pp-2. I've already repaired the one we have several times but the netting keeps ripping apart.
I appreciate your help and consideration.

How do you change lint filter

Hello ccparish8 - Base on the model listed above on the post, washer GLWS1339EC does not have a lint filter or any of Frigidaire washing machines. However, if you are referring to replacing the lint filter on a dryer, simply remove the lint filter from the housing and reinstall in the same manner.

Getting error F 02 and a beeping from washing machine.

F 02 Is a slow or long drain.
Things to look for kinked drain hose, Plugged or obstructed drain hose, Possible pump filter screen clogged, Least unlikely is a drain pump failure.
The pump filter screen is the most common it gets plugged with lint, coins, hair etc. It can be cleaned by the owner however is is a very dirty messy job and if you are not very careful you can end up with water everywhere. If you want to attempt it let me know. If there is anything else I can do to help please let me know.

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

Lint marks left on clothing

hello are you washing new items new items tend to create more lint within the first few washes check all pockets to see if there is anything left in them there maybe to much wash action for the size and type of load try selecting a less aggressive wash cycle
