My girlfriends washing machine drains into this contraption. The black hose leads to the machine. Does anyone know what this is? Is this a “cheater vent”?

I’m concerned that there is no way to catch the lint from the washing machine. She occasionally has minor sewer backups in the basement where dirty water will come up through the basement slopsink or through a floor drain. I wonder if this may have somthing to do with it.

I'm gonna guess that's a bit of plumbing left over from a no longer there fixture, like a sink or something. You could plumb a filter in there, but it would be better to power snake the drain, it should easily handle anything from a washer.
