Hi, welcome to Just Answer. My name is XXXXX XXXXX I look forward to helping you! First, congratulations on your marriage!
Sorry you are having trouble with your washer and the results you are seeing. That washer does not have a filter, so that would be why you are unable to locate it. The lint is designed to be rinsed out as the water is discharged in the drain cycle. So, let's look at a few things that can cause the results you are seeing.
Overloading the washer.
Not using enough detergent to hold the lint in suspension until draining.
Overdrying in a dryer can cause a build-up of static electricity in synthetic fabrics and cause them to attract lint.
Those are the most common causes. There are others, but you are sorting properly, so we can rule that out. Have you tried other detergents?
Good Morning, Kelly. Thank you for your response and good wishes. I'm using the recommended one scoop for top loading washers. It is powder detergent and I had read where there are fillers used in powders that never dissolve. I tried an experiment and put a small amount of powder in a quart jar of water and left it overnight. That stuff never did dissolve all the way. So do you think that could be possible? There are four more boxes of this powder to use up then I will probably switch to liquid. Anyway, I don't dry much in the dryer. The "all blacks" (I'm turning into a Kiwi already.) are coming out of the washer with the little "pills" of lint. I have one of those fabric shavers that shaves them off nicely, however, if used long enough I would shave the garment into oblivion.
I will try that just now and get right back to you within five minutes. LMS
The scientific research results are in!!! The powder dissolved some but there is an enormous amount of bits and pieces floating around and some settling on the bottom of the jar. Very little suds. So should I assume the powder detergent is the culprit and switch to liquid? Also, I usually wash in warm water and was even considering switching to cold to save on electricity. What do you advise?

Thank you so much for your prompt reply and advice. Will do as you suggest. I am curious about the time difference. It is 4 a.m. Tuesday, July 2 here in Christchurch, NZ and your response was 11:58 a.m. July 1. Where are you located?
I thought you might be. I just moved here from Tenn. My son is moving to Great Falls as US Air Force Chaplain even as we speak. Small world.
Thank you so much, Kelly, for your patience and help. I will rate you the highest. God bless you and yours.
I lived just north of Nashville in the little town of Portland, Tenn. and I know just where Greeneville is.
I don't know how far you are from Great Falls, but if you ever need a friend, my son is a great, crazy, guy. Married with two kids. You can see him on facebook--Rob Mohr.
Well, I must end this or I will be sending you a box of homemade cookies to thank you for your help.
