Hi, I have been looking everywhere for my lost dental retainers and the only other possibility I can think of is that I had them in a pocket and may have washed them. I have just a standard washing machine, not front load type. Before I go taking things apart, is it possible they are under the center aggitator? Thanks so much for any help or advice!

In the washer it could be under the agitator if it is a top loader, if it is a front loader there is really no place for it to go but check the rubber seal around the door. In the dryer it should be in the tumbler or possibly in the lint filter but unless the lint screen is broken or you ran it without one it should not be able to go out into the venting piping etc
The feeder pin used by hitachi has a shoulder on one side and a rubber washer /retainer on the other. There is only one groove and the retainer fills the groove and if the correct pin and spring, no extra room to fit an exstra retainer unless the shoulder is worn so bad that the pin is falling thru the plunger. I have seen a lot of creative ways that owners use to hold the pin in place due to lost rubber retainer or lost pin. I also see many guns that have installed a retainer pin from porter cable which has two grooves (one on each side of the pin and no shoulder ). Porter cable pin works fine and fits perfect. Good luck
Hi, Do you use the unit now. My unit of th same vintage has just failed and I would be interested in purchasing the same model slong as it works. Cliff Cason, Derbyshire DE6. Tel 01889 565574 mob 07711218929.
There should be either a pin or part of a ball sticking out, just like a ratchet, it all depends on the model..If you just see a hole, you lost the part. You will need the socket retainer, the spring and the retainer for these parts.
Thanks so much for these 2 posts. I had thought I lost my ring in my Kenmore He2 as well, but didn't know where it would be able to fit through to get out of the drum. After 2 months of hoping it would turn up, and many wash cycles later, we checked the drain plug & there it was!
