SOURCE: lint trap

There should be a rectangular flap on the top panel at the rear right of your dryer. the lint filter is in a chute if there is just a hole here then the filter is missing.

SOURCE: Oil Like Stains on dark cotton Clothes - Whirlpool duet

Problem Solved !!!
Ok, I had to stop and tell everyone about my latest experience. When we moved here we bought the nice Whirlpool front load washer and dryer set. I Love them....still don't understand how my clothes get clean with so little water, but love them. ..................That is until lately. I was really upset about a total of 4 white blouses that looked to have some kind of light splattered stains on them after washing. I would try to wash them again with a stain remover sprayed or scrubbed on the spots, but they wouldn't come clean. I gave up and considered the blouses ruined. I told William what was happening and he called the repair man out because he thought it might be some kind of part in the machine that was leaking oil onto the clothes when they were washing. The guy came out and told William that there wasn't anything that could go into the washer tub and get onto the clothes. He then looked around in the washer and at the little detergent dispenser drawer. He suggested that we use 1 cup of Clorox and 1/4 cup of dish washer detergent (cascade with dawn degreaser crystals) on a hot to medium water temperature and turn it on a complete wash cycle to make sure that we didn't have mold and mildew setting up in our machine. After he left, I proceeded to do what he told us. I though.....the blouses are probably ruined anyway. I had tried to get out all the spots to no avail, so what the heck......I threw them into the mix too! Would you believe they came out clean, very bright white (instead of yellowed or dingy from continued wear) and the washer smells as sweet as it did when it was new. Why didn't they tell me about this when I bought it ??????????? I plan on putting the detergent mix in the washer every couple of months and throwing in all the whites that I can find to take advantage of the cleaning effect on the whites. (I thought that maybe some of you had gotten stains on white clothes that you would like to get out too)

SOURCE: dark dirty spots on some clothing items appears on every load.

what you are seeing is suds getting back onto the clothes. make sure you are using HE type soap and not using too much of it.
if you are seeing suds inside the unit, when it is running, then it will "re-deposite" dirty soap residues back onto the clothes.
you need to run a rinse and spin cycle or even a heavy duty cycle with hot water to rinse out any soap that is left in the unit.
not a major problem, just use it differently and it will be ok.

Where do I find the filter on a Whirlpool top loader - our clothes regularly need re-washing as are covered in fluff?


have you check the outlet drain hose for blockage? go online check your wp model for built-in filter if any. if there is one you need the washmachine schematic show the location of the filter. most of the old machine may have a panel on the backside to access. this way you can get to the filter.

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.

Excess fluff on clothes


you should clean filter after every load. If dryer is getting unusually hot (cabinet), then you may have a plugged vent line. Check where vent is on the outside and see if plenty of air is coming out of it. If not it is plugged up

Everything works fine but my dark clothes always come out with white marks on them.


there is not a filter that you can clean easly you can take your agitator off and clean what you can get to.the lint should drain away at every drain cycle.
when you take off the agitator off you may see 2 holes about the size of a quarter they have what looks like little combs in it this may trap lint
