Run a load with no clothes with hot water and a gallon or two of bleach.
do an extra rinse cycle a couple times to make sure the bleach is rinsed out completely.

Clothes have lint on them when the washing cycle is finished is there a lint area i need to clean


The newer Whirlpool top-loaders have lint screens on the inner tub and not accessible. These are supposed to self-clean during the drain cycle. I've heard that liquid fabric softener and detergent build-up may clog the screens when lint sticks to the gooey screens. Try something that will cut the goo like vinegar or ammonia in a small load level without clothes. Without clothes in the washer, that is.

Older Whirlpool washers have lint filters located above the tub, on the lid opening.

Good luck from Detroit, MI.

Does the whirlpool 6ALSQ8000JQ0 have a lint tray that i can remove and clean?? i keep finding freshly cleaned clothes with lint on them.. thanks


Check inside the cabinet between the bottom of your tub and the pump. If it has one it will be there and noticable. My machine has one the size of a tennis ball. Why they dont make a simple access for these i'll never know.

My calypso machine leave alot of lint on clothing


you have to clean the lint trap before every use. I assume that you know that. also , you need to clean the area where the lint trap is really good, so you dont have a dryer fire.

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.

My machine keeps washing but the clothes come out with lint all over them still I have tried to clean it but not sure if I have cleaned all the sections. The only codes I can find are 6aLBR6245JQ2 ...


hi there,

you may have lint caught between the inside and outside drums but i would also check the incoming water, as it doesn't seem like you have enough coming in. check the water valves on the wall and then also the water level in your washer. im assuming you have a top loading machine.

Excessive lint on clothes and smell


There is many solutions that work some. The best analogy I have seen is to reduce the wash time as the newer soaps are more efficient at removing dirt which also softens the fabric. Any excess in soap regardless of type in combination with water type will cause an odor, why is the contaminents in the water plus the junk on are clothes to be polite. It builds up under the basket and along the top water line in the tub plus creates a film from the tub through the hoses, pump and house drain. Lint is a product of excess washing and too much soap. Whirlpool stated for there front loaders no more than two TBL of liquid soap which is like 3/8 cup max for the old top loader. SearsTechToo
