Question about Kenmore 22642 Top Load Washer
I cannot find a lint trap anywhere.
Check your lint filter and your dryer duct that goes out back of dryer to outside . Might have partial clog

There are many things that cause lint. Some are easy to figure out, some aren't. Here are some of the most common things: 1. Separate clothes that are lint givers from lint takers (i.e., sweaters are lint givers and should not be washed with cotton which attracts lint). 2. Check clothes pockets for tissues or paper. 3. Don't overload the machine. 4. Use enough detergent to hold the lint in suspension. Read the recommended usage on the detergent bottle. 5. Use enough water to rinse the lint away. Washing large loads on a water saver mode is not a good idea. 6. Use fabric softener to reduce static attraction of lint. 7. Washing clothes on too long of a cycle, too often can cause premature wearing of the the fabrics. I hope some of this may help you. PS Adding a cup of plain white vinegar to the rinse cycle has also been known as a "cure" for controlling lint.

Be sure to use higher water level on machine, don't overload machine Seperate lint givers from lint attractors. There is a lint catcher mounted on the bottom of the spin basket but it is self cleaning.

You must GRARANTEE full and free ari flow outside of the building. Typically this type of complaint is related to restricted air flow outside of the machine...normally there is lots of lint, and it exits through the filter, but when flow is restricted, lint remains inside.

When you open the door, check on the bottom part of the dryer before reaching your hand into the dryer. But it should be somewhere accessible on the front part of it, so try and look elsewhere if this isn't it

There is no trap per say. The lint catcher is self cleaning when the water is pumped out. It sounds like you are overloading it and the clothes are hitting the agitator. Operation should be agitation by water movement not beat by the plastic fins, run a wash cycle hot water no clothes to flush things out and try smaller loads.
