    There is no lint filter that you can manually remove?
    There must be something inside the machine that you can clean as
    this problem with lint only occurred when the machine has been in use
    for about 2 years.

    I don't use the tumble drier - I live in California. Why is this thin twin putting lint all over my clothes? It is driving me insane having to try to get ingrained lint off the tshirts...

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.

Most older washing machines had lint filters or screens in the tub usually near the top, where the water level reached - so that lint could "float in", same concept as a skimmer in a swimming pool. They rarely have them anymore - mine doesn't and it was purchased 16 yrs ago.

At least I think I can. I just bought a 2 year old washer/dryer (never had one before), and I've always found the "lint box" for the dryer either on top of the maching, or inside the door, and these machines it's in the back wall of the dryer, wow was mine full by the time I found it.

Hi Viral, The lint filter is in the door. It should just lift out. Or cut & paste this link for instruction manual for your machines. http://shared.whirlpoolcorp.com/assets/pdfs/literature/Use%20and%20Care%20Guide%20-%203406876.pdf Regards

Does the Whirlpool, top loading lsr6332kq1 have a lint filter?

I will suggest you steps to check whether your washing machine has a lint filter. Follow the instructions below.
1)Turn off the washing machine and open the lid or door if you have a front-loading appliance.
2)Place your hand on the upper lip of a front-loading or top-loading washer tub and feel around the circumference for a flat tab. Pull out this tab, which is the handle for the lint filter. If you cannot find a tab on a top-loading washer, continue troubleshooting.

3)Unscrew the cap on the top of the agitator in a top-loading washer. The agitator is the center cone inside the appliance.

4)Pull the lint filter out of the agitator and rinse under cold, running water to clean.
5)Slide the filter into position as far as it will go. Replace the agitator cap if your appliance uses a lint filter in the agitator.

I can't find the filter location for Hoover 202M 5.5kg washing machine. Can you pls help.

The filter is in the agitator. Remove the agitator cap, and you will find it down there. The filter is pretty much useless. Even though you might get some lint in the filter, if it wasn't there the lint would go down the drain. This machine has a neutral drain feature where the lint gets pumped out with the rinse water before the bowl turns, so preventing the lint from being stirred up nd put through the clothes.

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.

How to locate and clean the lint trap

Top load washing machines do have lint filters, they used older models have trays that sit on top of the agitator. Newer ones aren't as obvious and are attached to the bottom of the inner tub. If you remove the agitator, you'll see a bunch of holes in the bottom of the tub, the filter right behind these holes. Cleaning/replacing it involves removing the inner tub, so it's not an easy task. It is likely that by the time you're having problems with the filter, it will be beyond cleaning and will need to be replaced. Considering all the trouble it takes to get to, you might as well.
