Whirlpool ultimate care II lost item in washer or dryer
I recently accidentally left 3 rings in my back jeans pocket, and ran the jeans through both the washer and dryer. One of the rings was a larger one, and I found it in the dryer, under the clothes. The other two (the most important ones, wedding & engagement rings) are slimmer and I cannot find them. Since they are so thin and small, I believe they may have fallen into the bottom of the dryer, or under the washer drum. I tipped the dryer back and a bunch of change fell out, I banged on it a few times and some more fell out, but not the rings. I'm afraid they may be stuck in there somewhere, but am unaware of how to go about taking the dryer apart to find them. They may also have fallen somewhere in the washer, possibly under the drum, I'm also unsure about how to go about looking for them there. They are VERY important and I'm not sure where to look for information. Please help!

It is most likely that they are in the dryer if you still have not found them. Please respond with the type of dryer that you have and I should be able to assist you in opening your machine for a good look.
From what you have describe it sounds like you have an Inglis or speed queen dryer.

it could be between the two bowls, or down into the waste pipe, where some models have a catcher for items like rings and coins.getting to it will require some disassembling that might be best done by someone who knows how it goes back together.
I am betting it is in the dryer. Here is a video to show you how to open it. Please let me know if you find it in there. Look thru the COMPLETE duct work and blower. I doubt it is in the washer. If it is, it is under the agitator.
Likely that your Dryer vent is clogged up. Especially if its long. Check that by hooking up a shopvac to one end with duct tape to seal any air leaks between the vent pipe and the vac hose. Turn it on and check the other end of the vent pipe for suction. If its faint then there may be a crapload of lint in there or a birds nest. Compressed air in the pipe with an agitating device may work or shopvac hose if run is short. Be prepared for a mess on either end.
