As your
frequency
of loads washed increases,
the water temperature
may decrease
for hot and warm temperatures.
This is normal.
Load
too
wet
Bid you
use the right
cycle
for the load
being
washed?
Select a cycle with a higher spin speed (if available).
Bid you use a cold
rinse? Cold rinses leave loads wetter than
warm rinses. This is normal.
Residue
or lint on load
Did you
sort
properly?
Sort lint givers (towels, chenille) from
lint takers (corduroy,
synthetics).
Also sort by color.
Did you
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.
Did you
select
the correct
water
level?
The water level
should be correct for the load size. Clothes
should move freely
in the water.
Did you
use enough
detergent?
Follow
manufacturer's
directions.
Use enough detergent
to hold the lint in the water.
Did you
line dry your clothing?
If so, you can expect some
lint on the clothing.
Check
the following:
Was paper or tissue
left in the pockets?
Is your water colder than 60°F (15.6°C)? Wash water colder
than 60°F (15.6°C) may not completely
dissolve the detergent.
Did you use the proper cycle time for the load? Reducing
wash time (duration) is another way to reduce lint.
Stains

Did you follow
the manufacturer's
directions
when
adding
detergent
and fabric

fabric softener. Use enough detergent
to remove soil and hold

another
cycle with low spin speeds
(if available) to reduce
wrinkling.

the washer?

balanced
and not overloaded.
Loads should

during washing.
To reduce wrinkling
of permanent
press clothes and some
synthetic
