Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

Laundry is trapped under the base of the agitator.

I have a Kenmore Elite Oasis washer model # 110.27052600. A portion of a bed sheet is trapped under the base of the agitator. This is not a case of something (drawstring) trapped under the agitator fins, which is a common problem with this machine.

II cannot pull the bed sheet free. It feels as though it might be caught on or wrapped around something underneath the agitator base. I attempted to pull the agitator base up but it won't budge. I removed the back access panel only to find that the basket is an enclosed unit, so I did not go any further. Any ideas?

Im not very familiar with that type of top loadign washer,,, but on most agitators there is a bolt that runs down the center of the agitator, connecting it to the transmission/gearbox. Usually there is a cap, or softner dispenser that can be pulled off, revealing this bolt.

I just bought a kenmore elite oasis top-loading washer. It was a floor model-i didn't get the manual. Does it have a lint trap and how to I empty it? Thanks.


You must remove the inlet hose to the pump to find the screen.

The transmission probably stripped the worm gear that drives the drum - you would have to crack it open and take a peek.
