I purchased a Maytag MVWC415EW washer and it has no lint

Customer Question

I purchased a Maytag MVWC415EW washer and it has no lint filter. Is there a filter that can be added?
JA: Can you guesstimate how old your Maytag is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?
Customer: Purchased 4/15/16
JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?
Customer: Depends on what is involved. Usually a lint filter is just a pan on the agitator that the water runs through and collects the lint.
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: no

This model is designed so that the lint is flushed out with the water when it drains. You can add a filter at the drain outlet but not in the wash system. Would you like information for this type of filter?
