Rocks Rattling in the Drum - Needs Disassembly?
My 7 year old put a rock in his pocket. We did not catch it before the wash and now it sounds like that rock found its way inside the washer drum? How can I disassemble and remove the rock? Any suggestions?

I'm having a problem with the 'rocks rattling around" sound when my washer is spinning. I'm wondering what 'basket' you removed?? and if your machine was in spin cycle when you heard the noise?
My noise began with the first load I washed after I had run the 'clean washer' cycle on my machine. It was a load of my 13 year old son's clothes that he brought back from camp so there's really no telling what I might have missed in his pockets.
Yes, I think. It is when the spin starts and the pump kicks on. There is a basket (where you put the clothes) and a tub (which is like a big shell-tub-liner that holds the water and the basket, water in/out, etc). The basket was easily removed via a 7/16" bolt found under a cap in the center top of the agitator. With some muscle, the basket then removed (pulled straight up) easily from the spindle it was riding on. I had multiple coins rattling around the bottom of the tub. After removing the coins and putting it all back together, I still have something banging around. I think whatever it is gets pushed out and then back into the pump. I need to look again. What are your thoughts?
Well, I had some good luck here. Found a nickel in the basket after running a load and now no more rattling sound. I guess it was hiding in a crack or crevice somewhere. I feel very fortunate that I didn't need to disassemble anything!! Kae

So, I got off my duff yesterday after finally getting tired enough of hearing that obnoxious rattle. Took the basket out again and removed the cover from the pump. Behold, I could see a coin inside one of the pump hoses. I guess my theory was correct, that the spin/pump was pushing it in and out, hence the disappearing act. Used a shop vac and some needle nose pliers to recover several more coins. Now the machine is running quiet again!! .........John
