Lint on cloth after washing cycle - Top Load Washer

  • Lint in the washer can by caused by combining lint producing items with lint attracting items. For example, don't wash white terrycloth towels with dark corduroy pants.

  • Lint can also be caused by paper, tissues, or other items left in pockets.

  • If the wash tub has not been cleaned for a while, soap residue or other materials may be transferred to clothing.

  • Wash lint producers like towels separately from lint attractors like corduroy or knits. Check pockets while loading laundry and remove items before washing.

  • Keep the tub clean by running the Tub Clean cycle once a month or as needed.

  • Using too much detergent may also result in detergent residue on clothing, which can look like lint. Use the amount of detergent recommended by the detergent manufacturer for the size and soil level of the load. Pretreat or soak stained items if necessary before adding them to the wash

  • Large and light items, like blankets, may float on the water during fill, capturing lint in the folds. Wash blankets in the Blankets or Bedding cycle for best results.

Wash one blanket at a time. If needed, pause the cycle and press the blanket down so it is fully immersed in the water, then restart the cycle.
