Well..you might find that lint is a function of the type of detergent you use. The more aggressive the detergent(is actually burns the fibers in the clothing to release the dirt, etc) the more lint. In commercial cleaning, we used moderate detergents, like Arm and Hammer or something along those lines.

also, the hardness of your water is a major factor in how well the detergent works.

lint is a simple result of the detergent working aggressively to do it's job.

good luck

I HAVE A WHIRLPOOL TOP LOADER MODEL 3LSR6253E01 MY WASHING COMES OUT COVERED IN LINT. I CANT FIND A FILTER ON THE MACHINE IS THERE ONE? PLEASE HELP THANKS KATE


All washing machine have lint filters to protect the pump, but they generally have quite large holes and although called 'lint' filters, they are to stop baby socks and coins getting into the pump. They are always at the bottom of the machine behind the front kick panel on a front loader or under the agitator on a top loader.

If your washing comes out covered in lint, you need to find the item that is shedding it. May also be paper tissues left in pockets. We only have one item that sheds lint and that is a bathmat. We wash it separately.

Take a look at this video.

My dark clothes come out of the washer covered in lint. What's up with that?


The lint may be that a particular garment should not be washed in a machine. Don't wash clothes with something like a bath rug.Be sure pockets are empty and that you are getting disolved paper on your clothes. The color of the,lint might give you a clue about it's source. I have often wondered why lint in my belly button never matches my clothes, so lint can be mysterious stuff. good luck.

Prblems with Kemore washer


Clean your washing machine before your next wash load to be sure there is no lint trapped anywhere in the machine. Fill the tub about half full of water then add a couple of cups of white vinegar to the wash water. Allow it to agitate and then sit there and soak for at least an hour before you empty the machine.
Lint is small fibers from clothing that have come loose from natural wear or laundering. They can build up in washers and wreak havoc on your clothing. The dryer will remove the lint. But with clothing, like dress shirts that are air-dried, this can be a real problem; often requiring multiple washings to remove the lint. Older washers came standard with removable lint traps that could be cleaned. Some would filter the water as it recycled through the washer, while others would require the removal of the center tub support for cleaning.
Newer washers have a self cleaning system that uses a filter to trap the lint and the spin cycle to flush it away. It saves the inconvenience of having to manually clean the filter.
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.


Add a cup of either white or cider vinegar to your washing machine along with the detergent before loading in your clothes to keep lint off.

Sort out all towels and washcloths since they create lint. Put them through a separate wash cycle to keep them from transferring lint to your clothes.

Check the labels on all your clothing to be sure you sort them correctly. Cotton clothing produces lint in the washing machine while polyester clothing picks it up. Wash them at different times to keep the lint off those that are likely to pick it up.

Turn your clothes inside out before putting them into the washing machine to keep them from collecting lint as they go through the wash cycle

Clothes come out covered in lint after washing


Sears top load / direct drive washers don't have specific Lint Filters.

See the Use and Care manual for these washers for hints.

Washing machine lint trap


There is no trap per say. The lint catcher is self cleaning when the water is pumped out. It sounds like you are overloading it and the clothes are hitting the agitator. Operation should be agitation by water movement not beat by the plastic fins, run a wash cycle hot water no clothes to flush things out and try smaller loads.

Clean LG WF-T652a Top Loader Washing Machine


I have this problem too and I solved it easily !!!!

I hypothesised that something was blocked by dried up lint/silt. So I filled the machine with very hot water and also poured hot water down the lint filter outlets. I left it for 5 minutes and then started a wash cycle - and the water now comes out of the lint filter ducts. ! :-)

Washer leaves too much lint on clothes


There are many things that cause lint. Some are easy to figure out, some aren't. Here are some of the most common things: 1. Separate clothes that are lint givers from lint takers (i.e., sweaters are lint givers and should not be washed with cotton which attracts lint). 2. Check clothes pockets for tissues or paper. 3. Don't overload the machine. 4. Use enough detergent to hold the lint in suspension. Read the recommended usage on the detergent bottle. 5. Use enough water to rinse the lint away. Washing large loads on a water saver mode is not a good idea. 6. Use fabric softener to reduce static attraction of lint. 7. Washing clothes on too long of a cycle, too often can cause premature wearing of the the fabrics. I hope some of this may help you. PS Adding a cup of plain white vinegar to the rinse cycle has also been known as a "cure" for controlling lint.
