Default Excessive lint on clothes - Whirlpool
Model Number: LSB6300LW1   Brand: Whirlpool   Age: More than 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


I have an old top load Whirlpool washer, model LSB6300LW1, that is leaving lots of lint on the clothes. In my internet searches, it appears that this model doesn't have filter plugs. So, I'm at a loss. Any help would be appreciated.

Unless you line dry it is likely your dryer that is the problem. Poor airflow makes like stay on clothing.

There are items that I never put in the dryer that are coming out covered in lint. It's definitely not the dryer. Thank you, though, for the reply.

You are correct there is no lint filter on those units. Filters were pretty useless in older washers,; unless they circulated the water through them they had little effect. Dryers remove lint by the nature of their airflow. Hence the filter on dryers.

Check all edges of the agitator for sharp or rough spots that may he abrading the clothing. Beyond that there is little that the washer could be doing to create lint.
You may also run a rinse cycle and see if there is lint stuck in the machine before it drains. If it isn't damaging fabrics or already in the machine I have no further idea.

Honestly though, the majority of lint complaints are due to the actual fabrics just breaking down. The dryer removes this lint so items that are not run through the dryer just show it worse.

That unit, called a direct drive by us, is probably the most successful of the last 30+ years and I've worked on thousands. I don't recall ever having a lint complaint that wasn't due to routine fabric wear or items like Kleenex or napkins getting washed.

Thank you. I really appreciate you taking the time to respond. I'll visually inspect everything and then just run a bunch of loads and see it it works itself out.
