FWX833AS1


Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand when you wash your dark clothes in your Frigidaire washer, model# FWX833AS1, there is lint left on them after the wash. There are a couple of possibilities that can cause lint.

First, would be incorrect sorting, or possibly tissues left in a pocket. It could be overloading your washer or not using enough detergent. Try reducing your load size. Rewash the clothes using the correct water temperature, water level, and amount of detergent.

Secondly, could be that it is undissolved detergent leaving residue on your clothes. Try adding a nonprecipitating water conditioner to the wash water.

Thirdly, it could be static cling attracting the lint. Try adding fabric softener to the final rinse, if you aren't already.

Lastly, the load could have washed too long.

I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your appliances status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Lint all over Clothing after rinse.


My washer accumulates lint between the wash tub and the outer chamber. Whenever you wash a load, all the past dried up lint gets reactivated into the new wash water.

If you get a refrigerator or dryer lint brush, you can reach this area and brush out the accumulation. Also the area above the wash tub can get clogged with lint. If you look under the lip between the tub, you can see the fabric softener/bleach channel dispenser, a lot of lint can accumulate there as well.

Clean both areas after a recent wash load when the lint has softened and is easy to scrub off. For safety's sake, unplug the washer. Be ready to be grossed out! I clean my washer every now and then to keep the lint down.

The washer will smell nice and clean after getting this lint/dirtball out. To maintain this lint free environment, see below.

If this fails and is not the problem, go to a thrift store and purchase the cheapest 100% pure wool clothing, some dark colors, and some white. The wool acts like a magnet for lint and will attach itself to the wool before it attaches to your clothes. It can be used over and over if you hang it out to dry. It will get felted and covered with lint.

Dark clothes have lint left on them. what could help this problem?


Are you sure it is lint and not soap? My washer does this, and it looks like lint, but it is soap.
If it is lint, always keep the lint collector inside the agitator clean.

If it is soap, and this might work for lint:
1. Turn clothes, particularly black clothes, inside out.
2. Use a concentrated soap with little or no filler.
3. Use less soap than normal.
4. Fully dissolve soap before adding clothes.
5. Run rinse cycle again after completing full wash cycle.

Dark dirty spots on some clothing items appears on every load.


what you are seeing is suds getting back onto the clothes. make sure you are using HE type soap and not using too much of it.
if you are seeing suds inside the unit, when it is running, then it will "re-deposite" dirty soap residues back onto the clothes.
you need to run a rinse and spin cycle or even a heavy duty cycle with hot water to rinse out any soap that is left in the unit.
not a major problem, just use it differently and it will be ok.

The lint is not being washed from machine. All dark clothing has lint residue. How can I rectify this problem please? Currently my husband using damp cloth has to wipe over black clothing extensively prior...


the self cleaning lint filter seems to be clogged. before you replace it try this cheap/ easy remedy.
  • run a load with no clothes on high water level, hot water and a gallon or two of bleach.
  •  no soap. 
  • do an extra rinse after to make sure you rinse all the bleach away before putting more clothes in.
the lint filter may be defective since it has always had this problem, but its worth a try.
