      Help! I think there is a sock in my washing machine that is causing it not to drain. The sock is between the basket and the outer portion of the machine. How can I remove it? Take it apart? How would you do that? Thanks

      I used to repair washers and dryers 20 years ago, and still fix my own. The good news is that you can remove the basket.

      The bad news is all brands come apart differently. Also, there is no easy way to access the inside of the basket. It takes good tools and mechanical skills. If you have these two items, you should be able to figure it out. Basically you pop the top, usually by pushing on two springs under the top on the front of the machine. You unbolt the agitator, then the basket.

      If you need help, try to get a shop manual, or at least a copy of a parts blowup to help figure it out. See if your dealer will help you out. Check the internet to see if there are any blowups on the manufactures website (I sort of doubt it).

      Without a parts diagram, or intimate knowledge of the line of machines you have, you just have to use your intuition and mechanical skills. If that scares you, you should not try this yourself.
