Hotpoint WDAL 8640P washer-dryer is coating our clothes with lint

It's a July-2015 washer-dryer.

Clothes often come out more dirty than they came in. They are covered with some very fine gray fiber that we take off using a roller sticker.
We tried:
- Cleaning the big rubber seal of the door 
- Cleaning the pump's filter (the one you have to pop the front lower lid off and turn it out, it was actually quite clean)
- Running the secret "A+B for 7 seconds" self-cleaning cycle
- Running an empty wash with washing machine cleaner
We get the fluffy stuff even if we don't run a dryer.

We are careful not to put lint-generating clothes in it (but maybe my lodger did that before).

It feels as if there is something that's storing this fuzz and it needs to be cleaned. I am wondering if I can do it myself because I live in
Newbury and it's an "all you can rip off buffet" for tradesmen here (our neighbor Reading has 2 or 3 times cheaper tradesmen).

Thanks for any ideas.

Hello Mustey. Are you using good quality detergent and the correct quantity? Not using enough detergent can cause dirt to be redeposited on laundry. Also check this list out - Possible causes of washing not getting clean properly
