The lint is likely from the drum seal rubbing over time.

I wash all my darks together. No fuzzy stuff either with the black items. Don't overload as I am only person doing laundry. Why the lint left on the clothes. Kenmore Elite Series 600. Please help.


Your Kenmore washer does not have a lint filter. Washers manufactured today and in the past few years are not designed with lint filters. The engineers rely on the dryer to remove any lint left on the clothes that doesn't get flushed down the drain.


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.

Use the correct water level? The water level should be correct for the load size. Clothes should move freely in the water.
Alsp liquid detergent works better in cold water and has modifiers to keep lint in the water not on the cloths.

Do you line dry your clothing? If so, you can expect some lint on the clothing.

Check the following too

Was paper or tissue left in the pockets?

Use the proper cycle time for the load? Reducing wash time (duration) is another way to reduce lint.

these should help in reducing the amount of lint left on your clothes.
Thank the wonderful engineers for this problem.
There is one other thing you can do. Micro fiber cloths attract lint like nothing else. Inexpensive ones added to a wash load will catch almost all the lint.
found this out the hard way by trying to clean some that I used in auto body seminars for removing polish and waxes when doing detailing demos. they came out full of lint when washed in a mixed load,..looked worse than they did dirty. well sort of..they were still good for what i wanted them to do but looked like heck. :) if rewashed alone they cleaned up.
hope I helped a little.

Has anyone had problems with lint building up inside samsung DV330AE dryers


talk with a service agent , but by design the only way lint can get out of the unit is from a badly fitted lint filter
the air is blown into the dryer tub and exits through the filter to the vents
there may be a recall on the units so calling and talking will get an exact answer

Washer has e20 code


CLARIFICATION OF THE SIMPLETONS (LIKE ME) OUT THERE... It appears that everyone is correct. The outlet is indeed clogged, resulting in the e20 code. The most likely culprit is the primary reservoir: a black rubber catch found just below the clothes bin. It is mounted to the bin via two hoses - large and small - and secured by hose clamps. The catch is best accessed from the BOTTOM of the washer. That's right - you'll have to lay the washer on its side. I found that RIGHT SIDE DOWN was best. There is a large oval hole in the bottom of the washer; you should be able to see the black rubber catch easily. Detach the larger hose from the bin by loosening the screw-type hose clamp. Then, carefully raise the catch toward you to look inside it (a flashlight helps here). By doing this, you should be able to remove most foreign objects and remove any major clog. It was completely successful for me today... removed my wife's bra pad and several coins which were causing the washer to stop at the initiation of the spin cycle. After re-assembly, I placed the washer upright, connected all the hoses and plug it in... it worked perfectly! I ran it through a couple rinse/spin cycles to remove the remaining lint and minor debris. And, more importantly, I respectfully "urged" the wife to avoid placing such things in the washer in the future! Good luck everyone. This process should only take you about half an hour if you have plenty of space to work, like I did.
