ok if you have the use and care guide is talks about filtering ,BUT you do not have a filter that can be cleaned .
Automatic Lint Filtering System
The Lint Filtering System does not require
Wash and rinse water is filtered and re-filtered
continuously to trap lint shed by most fabrics during
the agitation cycle before it can be redeposited on the
wash load. The engineered hole design on the wash
basket in conjunction with water flow produced by the
agitator, traps lint away from the clothes between the
inner wash basket and the outer tub. Lint is
automatically flushed from the washer during the spin
Which they are talking about large particles ,from paper towels ,tissues and the like .
Anything smaller then the holes in the tub will NOT be filtered
The dryer is what actually catches 90-95 % of any lint on the clothes .
And of course always wash lint giving clothes with other link giving clothes , and none lint with non lint givers
