Does your washing machine have a filter?

I went to look at mine since someone asked what the most interesting thing we pulled out of there but I really can't find a filter. It is pretty ancient though so maybe they come with them now.

    I don't think so. I think everything goes out into the septic. =) I hope, anyway.

    Well, my washer is 22 yrs old and, yes, it does have a filter, of a sort. It's a top loader, and you put the fabric softener in a cup on the top of the agitator. That cup comes off for cleaning and the entire top thingy that it sits on comes off too. That is where the filter is. Mine is usually covered in dog hair and I clean it off every 2-3 loads of wash.

    Don't feel bad if you don't know about it....we had lived in this ouse about a year when my mother pointed it out to me. didn't have a clue it was there.
