  1. Hello everyone,I'm a desperate woman suffering from excessive lint/dust with my laundry as the title suggest and here is the story in short hoping i'd get some help. I've basically been doing laundry all my life. Since early teenage years, it was my responsibility so one could say i know how to do laundry. When my boyfriend and i moved in together, we had a complete empty flat "a brand new one, we were the first tenants". The first hing we've purchased were the essentials, fridge, an LG washing machine, and a bed. this is when the nightmare started, i would see (purplish color) lint on the corners of the floor. Initially i thought this was from the central Air condition and our apartment turned into a construction site. 3 months later the landlord finally agreed to move us to another apartment. The problem stayed. Black clothes will come out of the washing machine with white lint on them, and white ones with the purplish lint on them. We changed our brand new bed thinking it was the reason since the body was made of velvet and got a wooden one. problem was still rocking on. Finally decided it could be the washing machine itself. Returned the LG and purchased a brand new Siemens washing machine... And yes, the problem stayed.. i thought okay, this could be from the water so i purchased a water filter for the washing machine which obviously led to no change. a year later when our contract was over i was happy we were moving to another apartment, one with balcony so i could line my clothes outside and things get better. Another year later and i am still suffering from this problem, my clothes are looking very dull, very rough and extremely worn out. they're also stating to get a bit transparent too! so the only thing i cant think of is that the machine is shredding the clothes. I've tried doing laundry on gentle cycle, or using 600-800 spin speed with the result being the same. I've tried all kinds of detergents, all kinds of softeners, vinegar and what not. Has anyone experienced this? or heard of someone who went through this? any kind of help is appreciated please
  2. It's a July-2015 washer-dryer. Clothes often come out more dirty than they came in. They are covered with some very fine gray fiber that we take off using a roller sticker. We tried: - Cleaning the big rubber seal of the door - Cleaning the pump's filter (the one you have to pop the front lower lid off and turn it out, it was actually quite clean) - Running the secret "A+B for 7 seconds" self-cleaning cycle - Running an empty wash with washing machine cleaner We get the fluffy stuff even if we don't run a dryer. We are careful not to put lint-generating clothes in it (but maybe my lodger did that before). It feels as if there is something that's storing this fuzz and it needs to be cleaned. I am wondering if I can do it myself because I live in Newbury and it's an "all you can rip off buffet" for tradesmen here (our neighbor Reading has 2 or 3 times cheaper tradesmen). Thanks for any ideas.
