With some of these machines now they have sealed drums.On some models you can access through the bottom sump hose and others you may be able to get access through the hose by the soap box.There are a couple of drums where you can drill a hole in the top to get at the tags on the paddles and some drums where you cannot do without changing the complete tub.
Hope this helped.
