Why is my dryer lint trap always full?
If you are washing your clothes on a longer cycle than they need, using a higher water setting than necessary, or overloading your washer, you might find that your clothes have excessive lint, and your lint trap is always full.
To reduce the amount of lint on your clothing, you can shorten your wash time for smaller loads and lightly soiled garments. You can also allow the washer to determine the water level needed or choose only the level of water needed to cover the load. Loosely loading your garments no higher than the top row of holes in the washer can also help your clothing produce less lint.
