I have a couch cover stuck in the washer- it is under the spinning wheel. Help- I do not want to destroy the cover. thanks

Remove the cap on the agitator with a flathead screwdriver. There is a bolt down inside the agitator that you remove and then lift the agitator out to remove the cover.

Clothes are caught under the agitator. How can I

Remove the top part of the agitator or the cap and you should find a bolt in the center. Remove the bolt and pull up on agitator.

98702 is not the model # of the machine. you should find the model # either on top of the machine or in the dryer door area around the frame.

Clothing stuck under the agitator

Hold the agitator steady and the very top end will screw off. If very old it will be stuck pretty tight, but do not break it. Then the agitator will lift straight up.

Laundry is trapped under the base of the agitator.

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.

Agitator very noisy while washing

There is a small roller that tightens the drive belt for the drum inside this unit. If it is loose it makes a squeaking noise. Tightening this may solve your problem. You will have to take off the back panel to do this repair

Clothes getting caught on inside of dryer

There are a couple of guide wheels in the back of the dryer. when they get worn out the tub will have excessive play and will trap clothes inside. Just remove the front cover loosen the belt and remove the drum. the worn wheels will be easy to spot. It is an easy and cheap fix.
