SOURCE: looking for the lint filter
you did not give me a mod # of your washer .... so i will go through the history of the lint filter 1955-1964 the lint filter was on the right side under the lid , twist knob and pull screen out 1965-1986 lint filter was self cleaning mounted under the washer 1987 -today there is no lint filters any more ..... lint filters where used when people hung the clothes out on the line .... today most people use a DRYER that has the lint filter in it .... i hope this helpes ....... if you are going to rate this please rate this 3 or 4 stars , that will keep me in the paid answer department . thanks

I have the exact same problem. I am amazed at had been the engineering is for such a simple process. The user guide just says to clean the lint filter. Even when doing so, there is still an excessive build up of lint beyond reach. There are no instructions that mention how to clean this part. It is obvious that GE did not test this part of the machine.

I have a regular top loader and the lint filter is on the underside of the inner tub. You have to remove the inner tub to get to it. You might be able to find a service manual explaining this at appliancejunk.com.

Hi.It may be that these machines dont actually have a lint filter,they are making alot of them without lint filters now days.There would be a button trap down at the side or the rear i would imagine for cleaning out debris such as coins,hair pins,Etc.

Testimonial: "Thanks!I will check it out."
I have this problem too and I solved it easily !!!!
I hypothesised that something was blocked by dried up lint/silt. So I filled the machine with very hot water and also poured hot water down the lint filter outlets. I left it for 5 minutes and then started a wash cycle - and the water now comes out of the lint filter ducts. ! :-)
