how to get value for search in joomla module.

Does anyone know how to get the value for the search field? my problem is that after i search for specific data it still shows everything

In my helper.php I have this code. but doesn't work

    public function getFilterForm()
        JHtml::_('formbehavior.chosen', 'select');

        Form::addFormPath(dirname(__FILE__) . '/forms');

        $form = Form::getInstance('module.filter', 'filter');

        return $form;

        public function getFieldsvalue($params)
        $db = JFactory::getDbo();
        $query = $db->getQuery(true);


        $rows = $db->loadObjectList();

        return $rows;

    public function loadFormData()
        $data = $rows->getFieldsvalue();

        return $data;

I have a folder forms and inside it has filter.xml

in the tmpl folder. the in the default.php this is my code

<form name="adminForm" id="adminForm">
    <?php echo JLayoutHelper::render('joomla.searchtools.default', array ('view' => (object) array ('filterForm' => $form))); ?>

    <table class="table table-striped">
  <thead class="thead-light">
      <th scope="col">#</th>
      <th scope="col">Name</th>
      <?php foreach  ($rows as $item) {?>
      <th scope="row"><?php echo $item->id; ?></th>
      <td><?php echo $item->name; ?></td>
      <?php } ?>
