Remove and place back the lint filter.

If that does not work replace the entire Lint Filter Cartridge Kit

Fluff on clothes


Some washing machines have a filter usually bottom right hand corner, you can clean this out.

They do say every once in a while to run the machine empty on a boil wash and add a little bleach or try some of these commercialised cleaners that remove limescale etc it cant do any harm.

Do this once or twice if its still bad the only thing i would suggest is to get a new one.

Speedqueen does not wash clean. Always white fluff on clothes. Is there a filter to clean


Clean you 'lint filter' - see your instruction booklet or if you don't have it google your washing machine model and see where the lint filter is and how to clean it. It's usually a small pouch on top on the steel drum that you have to slide out and clean.
Hope this helps.

My mattag dryer (mds5500aww) the time started to slowly get longer and longer know every time i start a load it reads 99 min.? the clothes are dry but why the increase in time


Most likely your exhaust duct is filling up with lint. Also check where the duct goes outside the house and see if there is lint built up there. The lint doesn't all get collected in the lint filter, and some of it gets caught in the duct. This makes it harder for the dryer to push the air outside, and so less air goes through the dryer. Less air going through makes it take longer to dry the clothes.
Best wishes, and thanks for using FixYa.

How do I removethe lint? Clothes are coming out with fluff...


Sorry for the obvious.....
Fluff on the cloths is from the lint trap not capturing it from the air flow.
Air is passed into the clothes from the laundry room. It is heated and then passed over the clothes... then filtered air is forwarded to the outside exhaust.

If you are seeing lint on your clothes, then the air coming in from your laundry area is not lint free.
1. check the back/bottom of the dryer for lint accumulation.
2. Remove the lint trap and clean out the duct work.
3. Inspect all the flooring and areas around the dryer for dust/lint - and clean any that you find.

I believe that you will then have a clean and dry load.
The proceedure of cleaning described above should be repeated every 6 months or so....

I have a whirlpool top load washing machine model no. 6ALSQ8000JQ2. it is about 7 years old and does not have an area that collects the lint in the machine. Previously this was not a problem, but in the...


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 there, i have recently purchased a maytag atlantis washing machine 2nd hand model MAV7750BGW,great machine only its leaving lint on cloths and i dont have a manual for it,can you please...


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.
