Question about Whirlpool Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer
I'm hoping one of you can help me. My son likes to collect rocks. He's four. He sticks them in his pocket and we don't always see them before we put his clothes in the washer. Apparently one (or more) of these rocks got sucked inside. So now, when the washer spins, the rock(s) makes an extremely loud rattling sound. We don't know how to get the drum off or how to get inside the casing to find the rock.
Any suggestions? (besides the obvious one of 1. checking pockets better and 2. telling our four year old to collect something that doesn't get stuck in the washer.)
Any help would be MUCH appreciated!

Tips for a great answer:
is potentially very bad news I'm afraid. Beyond failed bearings, there are very few reasons for the drum to become tight.
To test your bearings, open the door of the machine and by putting a little lifting pressure on the top of the inner drum, attempt to rock the stainless steel inner drum up and down.
The outer drum is mounted on springs and shock absorbers, so it will rock about (and it should do this) but the inner drum should not move up and down in relation to the outer drum. Other symptoms of bearing failure will typically include:
A clonking noise as you lift and release the inner drum (this is the inner drum rattling on its bearings)
You will have become aware of the spine cycle becoming far noisier recently and possibly even a grinding crunching noise when the machine spins
The drum may feel like something is crunching or stopping you turning it when you spin it by hand with the door open
A leak from under the machine, which you will probably be able to trace to the back of the machine, coming from the centre of the drum. This is the result of the failing bearing allowing water to escape through the seal at the rear
