If your model is a WTW4816FW2 that you have been asking about before then here's the location of the lint filter in the machine.
It doesn't look too user friendly inasmuch as that it doesn't seem easy to remove on a regular basis.
However it still could get clogged up and therefore all the hairs. lint etc may stay lodged in the clothing or stay in the machine.
It shouldn't overflow the tub unless the water level is too high on the max level i.e. higher than it should be, and it splashes over during the wash/rinse cycle.
If the filter needs replacing search online for WPW10215093 to find suppliers that suit you best. The supplier linked was only to show the location of the filter.
Can only suggest that you run the diagnostic tests as described in the tech sheet for the washer and check if they show if anything is wrong
Torn washing is usually due to clothes catching in the tub during the wash or too fast a spin cycle
