Re: Clothes are covered with lint after wash
The diagrams for the lint screen and directions can be found on page 12 at this site in the user manual
The lint screen is located in the dryer door opening. Remove lint before each load. A screen blocked by lint can increase drying time. To clean 1. Pull out the lint screen and its cover. 2. Separate the cover and the screen by squeezing the screen and pulling on the cover at the same time.

I am not much of an expert with dryers but i'll give it a stab. Should there be a filter that catches the lint so that it does not go all over the clothes? Have you got the manual. If not, see if you can find the manual online and see if there is anything mentioned about a lint filter.
Your washer does not have a lint filter, so it's very important to sort lint givers from the lint takers. Washers today to not have lint filters because we rely on the dryer to remove lint that does not get pump out with the wash water.
Below are tips taken directly out of the user's manual:
Did you sort properly? Sort lint givers (towels, chenille) from lint takers (corduroy, synthetics). Also sort by color.
Did you overload the washer? The wash load must be balanced and not overloaded. Clothes should move freely. Lint or powdered detergent can be trapped in the load if overloaded. Wash smaller loads.
Did you select the correct water level? The water level should be correct for the load size. The load should be under water.
Did you use enough detergent? Follow manufacturer's directions. Use enough detergent to hold the lint in the water.
Did you line dry your clothing? If so, you can expect some lint on the clothing. The air movement and tumbling of a dryer removes lint from the load.
Was paper or tissue left in the pockets?
Is your water colder than 60°F (15.6°C)? Wash water colder than 60°F (15.6°C) may not completely dissolve the detergent.
Did you use the proper cycle time and agitation speed for the load? Reducing wash time (duration) and agitation speed are ways to reduce lint.
The lint filter should be in the agitator. Pull the softener dispenser off the top of the agitator and check for a filter. You might even find that the agitator shaft is very dirty. Put through a warm wash with a solution of 1 cup vinegar to one cup bicarbonate of soda and let it go through complete wash. This should solve the problem.
