    our Whirlpool does the same thing. It also leaves blueish spots on clothes from time to time that do not wash off. Not sure what to do -- cannot keep buying new white t-shirts!

    I have both a top loading Whirlpool and a top loading Kenmore (one came with the house). Both used to work well but have gradually started leaving more and more lint/stuff on clothes (I have a toddler so bits of oatmeal and stuff also make it into the washer and instead of getting washed off now they are ending up stuck all over everything – I shake off as much as possible, do a pre-rinse, and wipe off the drum after every load but it's just getting worse and worse).

    I read both manuals and neither mention any kind of lint trap that I can clean, or have any suggestions to help with this.

The clothes are full of hair and lint when the wash cycle is finished, how do you fix that?

On a top loader, check the filter inside the agitator.

On a front loader, check the filter under the panel at the front.

Get the lint and hair off before you wash.

Use a tumble dryer and an anti-static softener sheet.

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)

Why does my washing machine leave lint on my clothes? does this type of washer have a lint catcher?

Most washers don't have lint traps, the dryers are expected to. In your type of top loader some simple traps would be located in the top cap of the agitator. They should be cleaned each load, but they only stop the bigger pieces.

Crosley CAWC529JQ1 top load washer LEAVES LINT ON CLOTHING

try washing on a shorter time as this washer may have too good of wash action and the lint is fabric coming off your clothing
add more soap powder and do not buy the cheapest soap as the soap is important in the washing cycle of your machine
towels that are not too soiled brobably need 6 minutes at most on wash
if this machine has a delicate wash cycle use that for tee shirts etc
water pressure is important in rinse cycles
do you have high pressure and water only trickles in check water inlets on back of machine where the hoses screw on
good luck
