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!

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
You could try typing into your search engine/web browser '(make) washer spares' and you may be presented with a number of sources from which you can order. During the process you will be asked for the actual model number.
Alternately you could try telephone directories for spares suppliers but I would think the former would be more successful.
If push (literaly!) comes to shove you can always carefully push sacking/blankets into the back and around the drum, being extremely careful not to disturb or damage any plugs/wiring.
Hi from retired Englishman in SW France @20:49 Sat evening 'cos there's nothing on TV!!
I would think that you would be able to tell by looking to see if there are equivalent holes on the opposite side, possible covered, possibly not. Does the manual not say? Or maybe like most of us the manual disappeared a long time ago!!
Hope this helps,
Hi, The only way to determine where the problem lies is to take off as many covers as possible then run your usual wash cycle. The problem could be a leaking or blocked pipe or a rubber seal that leaks etc etc. Have somebody in the know open up your machine to determine where the leak comes from. Best wishes, Graemevm
For the FAV6800A or the FAV9800A you have lost Lid is Open/Lid Is Closed signaling from the Left Hand Lid Lock assembly via the Magnetic Reed relay in that assembly or corrosion of the pins in that assembly.Take a look as Solution #2 in this post.I cover the possible issues that would cause the OP alarm.I think you will find corrosion has caused the black wire on the magnetic reed relay switch to break off.Just a WAG but look at the post and do some checking.I will help you just post back with any questions…..Rich aka dh1200s
If there was work done on the water lines, they may have lost some grit in them.
I would turn off both supply lines to the machine, gain access to the rear of it, bring along a pot to catch the spills and take both lines off at both ends, inspect the wire mesh screens that will be at (at least) one end of each hose.
While the hoses are detached from the machine inlets, check those too for debris/sand possible other contaminents.
Additionally, hold a pot or other container under the faucets and open each one of them quickly and briefly to flush possible crud out of those and perhaps the line too.
Look at the water you've caught and see if there is any deposits that have come out with it.
I think you will find the water supply obstructed from the wall to the machine.
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!
