I don't see a washer in my pictures. Looks like the nut itself has a large flange and has no need for a washer. I have posted a picture of mine so you can at least compare the relationship between the nut and the threads that protrude past the nut (which really isn't much, pretty close to flush). If you are similar to it, I'd say you are fine and there is no washer in there.
