Washing Machine Lint Problem

Recommended Posts

Hi there

I have a LG washing machine, model WD-14316RD and I have a big problem with lint on clothes after washing. I have made sure that the filter is regularly cleaned and try to clean the inner rubber ring in the machine. However, after washing clothes are full of little fibres. I wiped my hand across the inner drum after the last load and there are loads of tiny bits of lint. Is there a way to get rid of this? I don't seem to have a 'tub clean' function on this model but should I run an empty cycle?

I have also been spinning clothes on a slightly gentler spin cycle as otherwise the clothes are so tangled and stretched but I am not sure if this makes a difference. Thanks

If you can, double check the instruction manual to make sure there isn't something you are supposed to regularly do to remove lint build up. Some washer dryers require some maintenance although many are supposed to pump away the lint with the waste water. It's definitely worth trying a few wash cycles with no laundry in.
