I had a small pair of earrings go through a wash cycle and must have fallen into the holes on the bottom of this washer. Any ideas on how to look inside there to find them. I can't even figure out how to take the agitator out. I can't figure out any way to remove the front of the washer either. Any suggesstions please!!!

Re: Small earrings fell into holes on bottom
If they fell through those small holes doubt you'll find them something that small would probably be pumped out and down the drain ..if you haven't used washer since may be lucky enough to find them in pump but doubt it pump is pretty strong and can handle almost anything except socks and thongs

suspect you have something in the wash pump.that has got through the filter or when you cleaned base filter it dropped down the hole,when you had the filter out,could be a small piece of glass or a chip of a cup, if you also think the same ,suggest search on u tube REMOVING OBJECT FROM A HOBART WASH PUMP or
removing objects from a dish washer pump, or pull mains plug out gain access to wash pump, screwdriver in back pump shaft ,turn and you will fill if there is something in pump, some times you can vac out through base filter using a wet vac.
I just had that problem. The repairman pulled the front off the machine and found a small nail that had fallen through the holes in the washer tub. I didn't watch him do this, so I don't know where inside the machine it was, but he found it right away. Hope this helps.
I would say if the CAT5 cable still locks in and it gets a connection still don't worry about it. I do repairs on the consoles and I can't think of what could have fallen off. There is a small black square piece that goes around the outer edge, but that's just to fill in the gaps.
The bottom area of all dishwashers have the drain holes and pump which evacuate the water and debris. Remove the bottom tray and reach in and feel around. You may discover that some small items like corncob holders have fallen into the drain holes...If the drain holes are not blocked or clogged, the pump may be weak or defective. Check for debris first, if you find nothing blocking the little drain holes, call a repair agent who may need to get under the wash basin area by removing the washer from the cabinetry.
That would be the thread guide. You need a small allen wrench to put this whole thing back on. There is a hole in the right side,looks like a hole, it's blackish, but is for allen wrench. The curved metal piece slides up into a tiny hole from the bottom near where needle enters then slide whole thing back on machine and tighten with allen wrench.
CHECK TO SEE IF SMALL CLIP ON BOTTOM OF PULLEY HAS FALLEN OFF. IF CLIP FELL OFF, THE PULLEY MIGHT OF SLIDE DOWN AND MOTOR SHAFT IF SPINNING. PUSH PULLEY UP AND ON END OF SHAFT ARE NOTCHES WHERE CLIP SLIDES ON. GE RECOMMENDS YOU REPLACE IT. MACHINE NOT LEVEL OR CLOTHES NOT BALANCED PROPERLY CAN CAUSE CLIP TO FALL OFF. HOPEFULLY THIS INFO HELPS.
assuming this has long since been dealt with, but if its not in the rubber gasket at the front of the machine, take off the bottom panel at the front, there is a small pump there that drains the unit. It may be trapped in there. You can use pliers or vice grips to remove the couplers holding the hoses on and a screwdriver to remove it.
