Necklace stuck in washer

A neclace got stuck in our washing machine. down under the thing in the middle that rotates the clothes around in the water. the cross i haning out but the chain is stuck tightly.

i tried to pull on it but it won't budge. i can't get my fingers under the big cylinder thingy (sorry have no idea of the technical terms).

should i just cut the chain and leave it, or does it need to be taken apart?

Hold the bottom part of the Agitator,(The part that you are talking about),Undo the very top part in an anti-clockwise direction and it will come right off.Use a wrench to remove the nut on the top of the agitator and then lift it right out,you may need to move it from right to left.You will now be able to remove the necklace.Replace the Agitator the reverse of removal.

Help my machine broke down in the middle of a wash and I called the repair man but won't be to my home until Tuesday. Ok but my clothes are locked in under the lid how do I rescue my clothes??


Okay, unplug your wash machine from the power source
(wall). If there is water still in the unit, you have to drain the water out by lowering the drain hose as far as it will go to the floor. The water will come out fast, so do it gradually, by lowering it and then getting it out. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gSF4J52B_U0

Clothing stuck in washer machine


Is it stuck in the center agitator or the out tub?

Working half a minut and stop


It could be a number of things: no water detected entering the machine, wrong temp water entering machine, water hoses crossed, door not closed all the way, items jammed between the tub, too little clothes, too many clothes, and me fave: unbalanced load.

I have a Maytag MAV6200AWW Atlantis Washer. A necklace got caught in one of the bottom holes of the plastic tub - It must be knotted on the other side, as I can not pull it through. I do not want to break...


There is no "simple" way. Under the part with the holes is the tub without holes that holds the water in. If the neclace breaks it will go to the drain pump and most likely be blown out the drain. However you can try putting a few drops of vegetable oil on the necklace allowing it to go down below, and wiggle it around in an effort to untangle it.

Grey spots on our white clothes after wash


do you use affresh to clean your front loader? deposits of soap and other such things can be stuck around the inside tub of your washer. try this porduct out it works great on all front loaders use hot water with the affresh pellet with no clothes and run the machine through a cycle this also helps with any stagnant water smells also have you cleaned out your pump lately. * note remeber to put the pellet on the inside of the machine not in the soap dispenser

Hi , my washing machine recently started not spinnig as good as it use to. The clothes are still soaked. I heard it could be the coupler, but turned it upsidedown and looke at it myself and it looked fine....


Probably your transmission starting to go out.  Check to see is there is a ring of oil around your casing, or oil leaking out under the machine.  If there is replace the transmission.  Check to see how easy it is to rotate the basket.  Sometimes things get stuck between the tub and the basket.

Stops in the middle of rinsing...leaves some water at bottom-


Calypso...The pumps fail often. They have redisigned one that theres not as many problems with, but if you still have the original, this is deffinatly the problem. As far as clothes getting stuck, the U-Joints wear out and cause too much play allowing things to get stuck. Total for this repair parts + labor will usually run about 500-600. There was a class action lawsuit for this machine and they no longer make it.

Ticking/chirping sound during slow spin


it will more than likely be a bra wire stuck between inner and outer drum it will only sound when clothing is in it due to the weight of clothing and water so it wont be heard with just water init or by pushing it around by hand only thing u can really do is eiether strip it yourself or by getting an engineer in but what i would do is leave it after a while it will dislodge itself and go into the pipe underneath the washer in the pipe that is in the middle of the drum check this when the sound stops love
