Tyler, I removed the access panel, but could not see or access the round cap- can I just leave it alone - turning off the water, for a week?? I don't have time to get a repair man today
OK- I'll try to unplug and see if I can get the sheets out - what about any water still in the washer??
ok- I unplugged the washer... and will wait 10 min. and try to open the door- to remove the sheets - don't think I'm able to unscrew the drain catch- afraid of what will happen when I do.... don't have a lot of time to play around or fix a water mess. Maybe just use towels to sop up the water in the barrel - and hope for the best....
ok- got the door opened, and caught enough water to stop a flood - then emptied a bucketful of water out of the drum. I'll dry out the drum and leave the washer unplugged while I'm gone...will have to have a repairman come in later. Thank you, XXXXX XXXXX help... is there anything else I should do , at this point??
Thank you for your help - I REALLY wasn't sure what to do - but you guided me through it all. I was able to remove the sheets, empty all the water out of the drum, dry it out and leave the house without worrying. Now, I just have to get a repairman to finish the job, so I can use it again.
