My washer is only 3 years old. I love it when it works. There's something in between the barrel and the housing that is stopping it from turning. We got it to turn and heard the object rattling inside but we don't know how to open the machine up to remove the object. The machine is a Kenmore Tumble Action Washer and the model number as printed on the inside of the washer is 417.43052200. Does anyone know where to find that kind of information?

It's more than likely the lower drum bearings. The sad news is they used to be covered by a ten year warranty that Sears took away because they were going broke changing the drum out. So if your washer is less than 10 years old the warranty will not save you and it will cost you between 2 and 3 hundred dollars. High efficiency washers, no matter the brand are pure junk. I've paid for mine twice in repairs. Grrrrrrrrrrrrr Good luck and maybe it's just something stuck under the disk at the bottom.
nasty problem. At the door of the machine there is a very slight gap between the inner and outer drum. smalls can get caught here and work their way down. solutions: power off lay the machine on its soapbox side remove the outflow pipe and see if you can find the offending object. Trickier solution: power off remove the heater usually at the back look into the heater housing and see if its there. Removing a heater can be tricky.nut in the centre unscrew but not fully. Tap the screw shaft lightly with a hammer and the remove the heater. When replacing lightly grease the seal to ensure it goes back more easily. Always power off before working on a machine
1) You r right it is NOT good!
2)Need Color and size to andswer that question
3)See if ur belts are missing a piece
4)Don't replace the belt unless you have done 1-2 and 3.
Oil is normal. Like u tought oil in the bottom of the washer is cause of that object.
Hi, this sounds like you have something stuck quite firmly in the hose!! If you use a good sturdy stick then you should be able to move the object without any damage to the hose. Check along the outside of the hose first just incase something has pushed its way out of the hose wall.
Get back to me.........
The noise in your washer tub could be caused by some object lodged under the agetator. Lift off agetator and check. Or somthing could have gotten into the sump tub. this could be a major job as you would have to remove the complete inner tub assy. One other problem I can think of it could be worn tub bearings. If the washer is 10 or 15 years old I would replace it,
