Suspect we have a finishing nail under the do we remove the agitator? model KAWS750LT1 I know how to get the fabric softener dispenser off

To remove the softner dispenser just grasp the outsides of it and pull up,or wiggle it side to side.It fits into the agitator by pressure and has no clips or screws.
If you dont find the nail there under the agiator the inner tub would need to to removed to see if it's in the outer tub. To remove the inner tub a special tool is needed.

I dropped nails in the washing machine tub and they fell through the holes. Will this damage the washer if I run it, or might the nails just go out the drain? So far, I have been unable to remove the...

The inner basket may be also bolted to the transmission. If left in there, they will end up in the pump. If this is a steel tub machine, you can buy a good sized magnet, and leave it in the wash basket, near the problem area. The nails should collect on the other side, and hopefully keep them from spreading significant harm, until you can get them out of there. You may be able to **** them out with a good strong shop vac.

My washer agitator spins but the tub doesn't,also see metal insid

Repair or replace is always a judgement call. Most people will be better off replacing the machine. This is a rather big job, labor wise. On a difficulty scale of 1 -10, I'd give it an 8. The metal is the inner area between the inner drum and the transmission shaft, which has corroded and started to break apart. (located under the agitator) To repair, the agitator is removed, the washer front and top are removed to allow the washer's outer tub cover to be removed. This allows the inner tub to be removed. (caution: the big nut under the agitator drive spline is a left hand thread) Then, the drain hose, water level hose, suspension rods, and electrical to the motor are all removed to allow the entire drum to be removed from the washer to allow the inner tub to be removed. The actual metal part which needs to be replaced is then easy to replace by removing a few torx head screws from the underside of the inner tub.

I broke a hammer removing the basket on a 6000 series today. These are known to be a real ***** to remove. Once those screws are out there is a seal nut to remove and the basket hub assembly is what it sits on. Look at 5 and 7 below.

Model 80 Sears Kenmore washine(Remove inner basket)

under the agitator youll see a lock nut appox 2-3in, around "locking" the inner basket to the outer basket. although they do sell a spanner wrench to remove this nut, A decent pipewrench and little muscle will get it loose, after that the tub will pull right out. assuming youve taken off the outer tub gasket cover
