Many washing machines, especially Kenmore, Whirlpool,and General Electric brands do not have a lint filter. Instead, they "backflush" the wash and rinse water so that all the lint comes out the drain hose. An easy way to check for this is to attach a rolled-up nylon stocking to the end of the drain hose with some large rubber bands. After a few washes, the stocking will be full of lint.

Hi i have aburning smell coming from the machine but the machine works ok


Be sure the lint filter is clean, and the temp sensor blown clean. Sometimes when cleaning the lint filter the some small amount of lint drops by the filter or screen and land on a hot spot. Lint can catch fire so clean with a air hose or vacuum cleaner - Good luck and be safe

GE top load washer w/no lint trap leaves excessive lint


Most US-sold washers made after the mid 1980s don't have lint filters. The manufacturers weasel-word around it by saying that the lint "goes down the drain", leading people to optimistically assume that there is a self-cleaning filter in there somewhere. There usually isn't and whatever lint doesn't go down the drain is filtered by your cloths (but whatever does might clog your septic system). As a result of this scam, it's much harder to hang-dry or iron-dry clothes that haven't been hand washed. And, if you think spending $2000 on a pair of matched "front-load" style machines will solve this, you might be wrong; many of those washers still have no lint filter.

Whirlpool dryer wed5700sw


you need a dryer vent brush first,bought at home depot cheap,and clean the entire vent to the house,then clean where the vent hooks up to the machine,if your filter is where your door is pull out the filter and stick the brush in there and pull out lint,also use your vacume,remember you let some lint out when you let the hose blow out but theres a lot more there to clean,and also unplug your machine as you do this,if this helps please give me a fix ya vote
