Question and Answers


After a load has been washed the clothes has black lint stuff on them 79629002000 Kenmore Elite Washing machine


Thank You for choosing Sears and being a valued member. It is unfortunate to hear that you are having issues with your washer and I do understand your frustration. Glad to help out. I'm looking at your model number 79629002000 and your washer does not have a lint filter, so it's very important to sort lint givers from the lint takers. Washers today to not have lint filters because we rely on the dryer to remove lint that does not get pump out with the wash water. 

Below are tips taken directly out of the user's manual: 

Did you sort properly? Sort lint givers (towels, chenille) from lint takers (corduroy, synthetics). Also sort by color. 

Did you overload the washer? The wash load must be balanced and not overloaded. Clothes should move freely. Lint or powdered detergent can be trapped in the load if overloaded. Wash smaller loads. 

Did you select the correct water level? The water level should be correct for the load size. The load should be under water. 

Did you use enough detergent? Follow manufacturer’s directions. Use enough detergent to hold the lint in the water. 

Did you line dry your clothing? If so, you can expect some lint on the clothing. The air movement and tumbling of a dryer removes lint from the load. 

Was paper or tissue left in the pockets? 

Is your water colder than 60°F (15.6°C)? Wash water colder than 60°F (15.6°C) may not completely dissolve the detergent. 

Did you use the proper cycle time and agitation speed for the load? Reducing wash time (duration) and agitation speed are ways to reduce lint. I trust this information will help you.


Thank you for choosing Sears
