Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

I think you will find that all washers have a lint trap/filter.
Here are my complete, general pre-typed guidance notes for checking both the filter and the motor ;-0)
-------------------------------------
If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!) and most are held in by a round cover/knob.

REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT!

It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. If it doesn't work then the motor is malfunctioning!

Hope the filter is the problem and good luck!

Where is the trap?


You'll have to be a little more specific please. What kind of trap are you thinking of/referring to? Not aware of any type of "trap " on this model. Are you talking about some sort of lint trap? And what problem/s are you having with the washer (like what's it doing or not doing)?

Does a Amana commercial quality washer (model LWA50AW) have a lint trap?


You will need to remove the agitator and inner basket to access and replace the lint filter. It is best to replace the filter and not to try and clean it.
Here is a link to the filter.

Need to locate lint trap on washer....affinity frigidare front load washer


There is no lint trap on this washer. There is a filter in the hose that goes from the tub to the pump that occasionally will get plugged with lint, but it is not designed to be regularly cleaned. During normal usage, the lint is designed to be pumped out with the water.

Can't find the lint trap


There must be two vents going into the interior of the dryer, one is the intake (where the hot air comes from), the other is the outtake (where the lint trap must be). Locate the two vents and see if one of them has anything removable near it (or if the vent itself has finger holes or something that you can grab and pull or slide it open). All dryers have a lint trap (building codes probably even require it).

Where is the filter?


Hi,
To find the filter you need to do the following steps. Find your lint trap. Lint traps in washing machines can be in the agitator (the large plastic piece in the center of the tub), at the top of the washer on the rim of the tub, or attached to the washing machine's drainage hose. Pull out the agitator tube to check for the lint trap. Peel any loose lint from the filter. Scrub away lint that doesn't peel off easily with a heavy-duty paper towel or a wet sponge. Feel your way around the top rim of the washing machine's basin. If you locate a trap, pull it straight out of the machine. Peel away loose lint and follow up with a wet sponge or heavy-duty paper towel. Check your machine's drainage hose for an attached lint trap. Remove the trap and peel the top layer of lint off. Rinse the trap in low-pressure, warm water. Reattach to the drainage hose. Check for and remove any lint or debris that may have dropped into the washing machine basin during the cleaning.
Let us know if you want any further clarification.

Why does my washing machine leave lint on my clothes? does this type of washer have a lint catcher?


Most washers don't have lint traps, the dryers are expected to. In your type of top loader some simple traps would be located in the top cap of the agitator. They should be cleaned each load, but they only stop the bigger pieces.

Remove 3 screws from the bottom front panel and drop it down. The pump will be in front of you on the bottom.
