Roper top load lint filter

Just acquired a used Roper top load from the parents of the person who owned it. Great deal, but I can't find a lint filter and the first couple of loads seem to be pretty linty. I've seen reference elsewhere to a self-cleaning lint filter. What gives? Anything I can do to improve the situation? Thanks.

    Have a year old Roper top load and clothes are constantly covered in white lint film.  Can the filter be cleaned?

    I was told to use (and I have to do it again) to use CLR or a bottle of drain cleaner. I'm going to try the bleach until I remember which. You have to use hot water with the product and wash a tub after to make sure is all gone. Does anyone know which it is? I did it last year and was fine till now.

It has a self cleaning filter mounted under the tub. if you want to clean out the tub and filter thoroughly then:

  • run a cycle with no clothes using hot water and a gallon or two of bleach. 
  • after the tub has filled up add a teaspoon or less of dish liquid like palmolive. this acts like a surfactant for the bleach. 
  • make sure you also run an extra rinse cycle to make sure you have all the bleach out of the machine before putting clothes in.

Cleaning lint


Your Roper dryer is made by Whirlpool, there is no reason to clean lint from around the heater, very little lint collects in that area. Every once in a while you can take the front off by removing 2 screws from under the lint screen, then pry up the top and there are 2 screws that hold the front on inside facing out. After removing the front you can vacuum inside below the drum.

Check the lint filter at the end of the hose. The filter is actually inside the washer. My husband cleaned it out and now ours works great. Both hot and cold had stopped running in because of our hard water.
