I have a Kenmore Elite Oasis washer which I recently purchased. The model number is 110.27072600 with serial CT1970799 and Type 580. Anyway, when finishing a load the other day I noticed coins (pocket change) stuck around the bottom agitator, when trying to remove the coins a few of them dropped below the agitator and I was not able to remove them. I am not sure where these went, and the washer still works so far. When repair men were called they were unable to find out where the coins could have gone, and checked both pumps under the washer itself. They called back and told me they tore one like mine apart and could not figure this out. Any Ideas.. anything would be appreciated.. I don't want my new washer to die suddenly. Thanks in advance,



Biz

This is a new model using Fisher&Paykel design and Whirlpool manufacturing. Those coins must be between the outer tub and the agitator. Someone is going to have to take it apart to find them. The coins may not be causing a problem at the moment, but they will likely find their way into a troublesome spot, like the pump.

It's possible the technicians in your area have not been trained on the new design. I haven't worked on one yet, so I can't tell you how it comes apart.

Training technicians is no longer thought to be of value at Sears.

I just got a F&P GWL11 a couple days ago. Not sure if the design's the same, but if so, here you go:

Pull off the softener dispenser. (On Fisher & Paykel machines, you're supposed to dump the detergent down the center of the agitator, and it's riddled with water circulation holes!)  If there's a large thumbscrew at the bottom, reach in and unscrew it. (Large hands? You might need the assistance of someone with smaller hands and arms... I can just barely fit mine down the agitator core.)

Then just lift the agitator right out. Voila, you should be looking at the splined drive shaft. On mine, below this, there's a white plastic plate. Visible are a row of drain slots, and four Phillips screws. I haven't taken them off to see what's under there.....

Yes, I am totally anxious to get an excuse to take this machine apart and see how it works. Why not?

I'm not sure how one goes about removing the inner tub, but I have seen a warning on here about the outside of the drain holes in the stainless tub being sharp like the business end of a cheese grater. Wear gloves if needed.

Thanks for the info,, the two are a little different in design. I do not have a center agitator and I have removed basically everything down to the plastic drain slots which run around the bottom of the washer, however I do not see any way to remove anything farther to get to the actual bottom. All parts look to be sealed within one another, so for now I am waiting..

thanks again

This is the Repair Manual for the Whirlpool Cabrio, the WP version of the Oasis, should be about the same as the Sears Oasis...perhaps this will help you with taking it apart???  Worth looking at this to see if it might help....takes a bit to download...;)
