There is a large round "hose" that filters air out the back of your machine and item may be there. If the item is metal, can you use a magnet firmly attached to a stick and lowered into the "box?" It is a straight "drop" inside a tube from the lint slot to the bottom of the machine and the air evacuator hose can be removed to inspect the chamber. Of course, the machine must be removed away from the wall to get behind it. Always unplug any appliance before tampering with it.

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.

Lg dryer td75125e thermostat tripping


Dryers today have several items installed to prevent fires starting in the wiring or the lint that accumulates.
Some have as many as 6 - 8 different "safety" items.
Dryers today, however, also have some real problems with lint accumulation where you cannot clean it.
Very likely the solution will be a complete teardown of the machine to remove accumulated lint, in the large pipes and nooks and crannies deep inside the machine.
I have had to do several of these, to stop the symptom you are experiencing.
If the dryers is more than 5 years ole, I am not surprised to find a shoe box full of lint trapped inside.
God bless your efforts.

CLOTHES COMING OUT OF WASHER WITH DARK STAINS


Hi Lynn, this is AP.

I understand you are seeing stains and lint on your clothes once removed from your top load washer, model FWS833A. There could be several culprits causing this to happen. To confirm, are the stains not being removed during cycle or do you believe the washer is the cause of the stains? If you believe the stains are being caused from the washer it could possibly be undiluted liquid fabric softener poured directly on fabric. Something more serious could be a broken transmission causing oil to leak in the tub.

There are some basic troubleshooting tips for lint to check such as undissolved detergent can leave residue on clothing. Separate clothing items which shed lint from items which attract lint. Permanent press, synthetic, knit and corduroy items will pick up lint from towels, rugs and chenille bedspreads. Make sure to Use correct amount of detergent, water temperature and water level.

There are some simple troubleshooting tips listed above and in your owner's manual, if you find they do not resolve your concern I would recommend contacting a local authorized technician to inspect the washer.

Thanks,

My Whirlpool gas dryer is not working


Instructions

1
Check that the dryer door is closing completely. Remove anything that blocks the dryer door from closing.
2
Ensure the "Start" button is pressed firmly to start the dryer cycle, the dryer is not overloaded and the clothing is not balled up. Any of these things can prevent the dryer from operating and/or drying the clothes.

3
Use a level to confirm your Whirlpool dryer is sitting flatly and evenly on the ground. Adjust the dryer as necessary for it to be level as the dryer will vibrate and make unnecessary noise when sitting unevenly.
4
Examine the inside of the Whirlpool dryer drum and in the space around the drum for loose change, pens, hair ties and other items that could have been left in the pockets of clothing. These items will cause noise and potentially cause the dryer to become inoperable.
5
Examine the Whirlpool dryer's lint trap for excess lint. Remove any lint from the trap and place it back into position. Always clean the lint trap between dryer cycles. Inspect the area around the dryer and in the ventilation and exhaust systems. Remove any built up lint and clean the area thoroughly. Built up lint is a fire hazard and can cause operating issues.
6
Check the gas shutoff valve if your Whirlpool dryer is gas powered. Ensure the shutoff valve is turned all the way to the "On" position.
7Check the electric plug and ensure it fits securely in the outlet.
8
inspect both the fuse box and circuit breaker for any electrical problems. Replace any blown fuses, if necessary, and reset the circuit breaker if it has been tripp

After every wash the lent stays on the clothes


here are a few suggestions Two things that come to mind...1) Your wash time is too long. Unlike front loaders, top loaders clean quickly. No need to use the longest wash setting unless the item is really dirty.
2) You are overloading the machine. Items should move freely and circulate from top-to-bottom several times during the wash.
3) try using more detergent, One of the things good detergent does is keep lint (and dirt) suspended in the water and off your clothes. 4)http://www.ehow.com/how_2083872_clean-washing-machine-lint-trap.html

Where is the lint trap loacated on my machine? Frigidaire ATF7000FS1 model


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.

Download this manual and go to page 6 item 40:
http://guides.homeeverything.com/cache/FRBVHTCGJYGT.PDF

This is the pump filter. You must remove the back panel and then the 3 hose clamps Items 42 (1 ea) and 48 (2 ea) seen on page 6 and pull the coin trap item 41 to get to the pump filter item 40.

There is no "lint trap" per se. Just the pump filter.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

Kelly
