I'm sorry Hilda, most washers that have been put out over the last several years don't have a filter per se. When the wash cycle agitates and lint is released from the clothes, the outside of the basket (the area where you put your clothes) is very sharp where the holes are. Lint collects on these holes as the linty water flows through them. When the rinse and spin cycles dis-lodges it and send it down the drain.
There are some availibkle aftermarket kits availible at some appliance parts stores. They are generics and not produced by the manufactues, but if you wanted a lint catcher n a washer, it would be an option.
I hope this helps with you questions. If you have any other quiestions or concerns, please feel free to write me back.

SOURCE: washing machine won't spin dry
If this is a top load clothes washer, almost all units will not spin if the door is open during the cycle time when it should be spinning. If the door is closed, check if the door safety interlock is broken (on most washers, you will see a pin on the door pressing into a little depression)
If these things check out, you probably have a failed transmission deep inside the clothes washer. Fixing that is non-trivial.

Common problem. The top of the agitator is driven by what are called "dogs", and are worn out.
Here is an excellent tutorial on how to replace them.
The cost should not exceed $10.00.
Thank you for using FixYa
