Some washers have lint traps that can be cleaned. What is the brand and model number so I can check for you?

Thanks. You do have a lint trap but to get to it you need to either remove the back panel or tip up the washer and remove the bottom center cover. Let me see if there is a video for this style.

I'm not finding a good video for this one. I found one but I think your model has the pump turned sideways and may be able to clean from the back. If not the front would need to come off. Let me know how it goes for you.
