Re: aggitator is lose small items (socks) fall down...
When the wash plate is loose (can be lifted up and down) it means that your washer needs a u-joint kit. Yes, Whirlpool actually came out with an entire kit for this.
Tightening the bolts (actually there are 6 of them) won't fix your problem. The kit number is 285927. There's an instruction sheet included with it.
After you get the kit and are ready to install it, remove the white plastic dome by inserting a flat screwdriver into the 4 small slots (look closely and you'll see them) and lifting up at the same time.
*Beware... this is a MAJOR job. Be prepared to spend a long time on it. You'll need to lift the top panel, remove the balance ring, remove the wash plate, remove the drive block nut (<---sometimes requires a torch), etc... It may not be something you wanna jump into. Call an appliance repair outfit and ask them what they'd charge to install one if you ordered the part.

get to the back of the unit and take out the 2 screws on the back of the lid . remove the lid. look at the front electrical panel -remove the screws holding it in place. look inside the unit on the right and left side -- there may be 2 screws holding the front on - about 7 inches down. there may be two screws also at the bottom of the front panel. If the washer won't drain, should check the drive belt. If the belt is broken or if it isn't tight on the pulleys the washer won't drain properly, if at all. If the washer won't drain water check the drain hose. Be sure the hose did not get kinked behind the washer. Also, remove the hose from the pump and check it for obstructions. If the washer won't drain there might be a clogged pump or hose. It's common for small socks or other small clothing items to get into the water drain system and clog the hose leading to the pump or the pump itself. Remove the hoses from the pump in order to remove the article of clothing. Keep in mind that any water in the washer will pour out of the hoses when removed.
Losing small socks or items of clothing in your washing machine can end up as a costly repair. This can be avoided especilly when washing baby socks ect by placing items that are very small inside a pillow case and using a rubber band to place around the top.Less chance of damage to machine, and less odd socks comming out of machine.
you have to lift the car to get under, suport it on jack stands for safety, the starter has a bolt from behind the eng towards trans housing, and another from trans to starter body ,the first this is the one you need to get from under the car, is a litle tricky, you will need a long extension and a swivel 14mm socked, you have to work this bettwen axle and eng block trougth pass wheel access.(remove tire). remove bolt unplug wires froms starter, now go to drivers side and look for the second bolt, you need same tools but a shorter extension, loose bolt have some one hold starter so does not fall get it out trougth passenger side, install new starter back track steps
I just did this. Remove the fender liner Remove the mud guard
There are several 6mm flange bolts with 10mm heads. 3 along the inside of the hood 1 behind the top of the door accessible with the door open 2 on the bottom of the door behind the mud guard 2 behind the bumper cover, the headlight is attached to one of these. There is a screw holding the end of the bumper to the fender. Remove it and pull the cover away from the fender. There is a large plastic clip inserted into the fender next to the two bolts that holds the bumper
cover but should release when you pull the cover.
The headlight has two dowel pins that insert into the fender, removing the headlight may be better but you have to remove the bumper to get to some of the headlight assembly bolts. There are 4 bolts holding on the bumper that are accessible through the turn signal holes. The bumper will "fall" about an inch and sit on some collar bolts so it can be lifted off without one side falling (a neat feature). The turn signal is held by one Phillips screw accessible through a special hole on the inboard side of the bumper with your longest Phillips screwdriver.
This model dryer has a square opening above the drum for a lamp which you do not have on this model. If its not covered items very small will collect inside of it although ten socks are highly unlikely I think
1. disconnect battery lead because of air bag sensors
2. pop off trim around shifter stick
3. remove center knob on the A/C panel. Remove phillips screw behind
the knob. This is the only screw that has to come out (in addition to
the 4 radio screws)
4. pull the a/c console forward. It's a tight fit but it's only held by
clips. This was the most difficult part for me because I didn't want to
break anything. It eventually released after pulling with constant
5. pull the air vent assembly off around the radio. This is also a
tight fit, is only secured with clips. The radio face plate came off
with this piece.
6. Remove 4 10mm bolts at bottom of radio. I used putty on a 10mm
socket to help hold the bolt from falling down into the dashboard. Lose
these bolts and you'll easily add several hours to the job trying to
fish them out of the dashboard.
Where the front panel and the top of the machine meet, there is a crack. When using a flashlight, you will see 4 items in this crack. 2 are green 2 are black. The black peices are support studs, ignore them. The green one's are clips that hold the top to the front. Using a putty knife (easier) or a small flat head screw driver (a bit more difficult) push one of the green clips towards the rear of the machine while lifting on the top. Only lift slightly (too far and it will bind on those support studs I told you about) Now press the clip on the other side and lift the top up. Now you should see your tub (from a new perspective) you will see a plastic ring around the top of the tub. Disconnect the green clamp on the hose towards the left rear using a pair of pliers or channel locks. The ring is held down with clips all of the way around the tub. By pressing down over each clip and pulling the lips slightly forward, you can remove the top ring. The rest is the easiest part. In the center of the basket, there is a small cap. Rremove this with a small flat head screwdriver. Remove the bolt that is underneath the cap. Now lift the whole basket out. If your small items get too far (ie, the pump), remove the back panel. On the left hand side you will see a small black hose towards the botom. this connects to the pump. Forign objects can ldge in here keeping it from draining also. If you disconnect the hoses, have something handy for all of the water to go into (large wet vac is usually the best). Drop the 3 #20 torx screws and the pump will come down and you can remove the obstructions.
