I sure hope someone can help on this one. I would not mind buying a new washer and dryer because these have been so good for so long but when the machine is working so well in all other aspects the problem just can not be this mysterious. Now it is just swaths of lint on the laundry after the water spins out. Series 70 Kenmore model # 110 82671 820. When I researched the machine Kenmore said there might be small (quarter size) filters under the agitator. When I removed the agitator there were 4 holes through the basket but no evidence that there had ever been any filters installed. I bought and installed the 4 filters but the same condition exists. When I pulled the agitator again there was a small bit of lint still stuck on the filter fingers but nothing abnormal. I know all the lint should have "back flushed" out of the fingers but don't think this is causative. Help P

Thank you for submitting your question. I understand your concern and I will be happy to assist you. The lint should be flushing down the drain and very little should be left on the filters.

Residue or lint on load:

  • 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 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. Clothes should move freely in the 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.
  • Check the following:
  • Was paper or tissue left in the pockets? Is your water colder than 70°F (21°C)? Wash water colder than 70°F (21°C) may not completely dissolve the detergent.
  • Did you use the proper cycle time for the load? Reducing wash time (duration) is another way to reduce lint.

These tips should help in reducing the amount of lint left on your clothes. I hope this helps. Please reply back to this thread if you require further assistance. Thank you for using Manage My Life.
