The lint is from some other garment in the same wash.

Do the white spots wipe off or are they "bleach stains"?

Assuming they wipe off, then your detergent is not dissolving all the way. Make sure the water is hot enough. Even cold water needs to be a minimum temperature and during the cold months the water can get too cold. Try warm or mix hot and cold by changing back-and-forth on the control for the wash temperature. Also, try putting the detergent in first or buying a higher grade of detergent (i.e. Tide). Best of luck.

SOURCE: Dark Spots on clothes

There may be some pieces of mat stuck between the inner and outer drums. The quickest way to remove this is to remove the drain hose that leads from the drum to the pump and feel around the bottom of the outer drum and remove any foreign objects that may be stuck in there.

My Kenmore 22642 washer is leaving lint all over the clothes. If i run them through the dryer, that will remove the lint... but some of my clothes don't go through the dryer. I can't seem to determine if...


Wash clothes separately whites and light colors together. Darks with liquid detergent. No lint filter on the machine. I have found some powder detergents do not dissolve completely.

Can i put both whites and colours in a tumble bryer?


Yes, with two caveats. 1) If you put in a dyed fabric that is leaching dye you might get stains on the whites. Anything that has been washed more than three times before should be safe enough. 2) You may end up with some dark lint on your white clothes. You may want to avoid dark clothes that produce a lot of lint, like towels or sweatshirts.

Deposits on clothing


Be sure to seperate lint givers with lint taker, do not mix towels etc with clothes that are attracted to lint. Also be sure water levels are sufficient
