I have a GE washer with a customer complaint excessive lint being left on clothing. The model number is worn off so I cannot provide that. It is a top loader high efficiency, stainless steel tub. It is a unit with the inverter board motor. I took the inner tub out and cleaned the outer and inner tub to almost new condition so the lint has to be coming from clothing being washed. What causes this? It is evident on the clothing before it goes in the dryer and does not come off in the dryer. Thank you for any tips.
The usual reasons for this are low water in the tub during wash, drain hose siphoning, abrasions on the agitator vanes and failure to use warm water to allow the detergent to lift and suspend any errant lint. The condition is called “pilling”. Various detergents also can cause this…be sure they use liquid only, warm or hot wash cycles.
