We have a Maytag Quiet Series 100 Clothes washer (Commercial

Resolved Question:

We have a Maytag Quiet Series 100 Clothes washer (Commercial Quality Stainless Steel Tub, Supersize Capacity, 3 Speed Select, 17 cycles)

It supposedly has an automatic lint filter system that is automatically flushed.

However, we are tired of finding lint all over anything in dark colors.

Is there some way to access the lint filter and clean it manually? What else can we do?

The rest appears to be correct.

ok if you have the use and care guide is talks about filtering ,BUT you do not have a filter that can be cleaned .

Automatic Lint Filtering System

The Lint Filtering System does not require

cleaning.

Wash and rinse water is filtered and re-filtered

continuously to trap lint shed by most fabrics during

the agitation cycle before it can be redeposited on the

wash load. The engineered hole design on the wash

basket in conjunction with water flow produced by the

agitator, traps lint away from the clothes between the

inner wash basket and the outer tub. Lint is

automatically flushed from the washer during the spin

cycle.

 

Which they are talking about large particles ,from paper towels ,tissues and the like .

Anything smaller then the holes in the tub will NOT be filtered

 

The dryer is what actually catches 90-95 % of any lint on the clothes .

And of course always wash lint giving clothes with other link giving clothes , and none lint with non lint givers

One more question, to satisfy my wife who is ready to call a repairman:

 

I accept what you have provided and understand that any "automatic" system may be less thorough than an older manually cleaned filter.

 

We seem to get lint on dark clothes that are washed with only other dark clothes, so it does seem that there may be some carry over from previous loads.

 

QUESTION: Is there likely to be anything that a repairman would find?

Expert:  Whrlp Master Tech replied 4 years ago.

if the washer is draining ALL the water out from one wash to the next ,then there would be nothing that can be replaced or repaired .just clean pockets out and continue on .
