My Whirlpool Cabrio washing machine died several years ago.  Long before it died my necklace got hung in the edge of the soap loading/dispenser on top of washer.  The necklace broke and I grabbed the chain but my sterling silver cross fell down the hole. My local Sears repairman is a patient of mine so before I ran the machine again I asked him if it would damage the machine if I did not retrieve the cross immediately.  He said no and I think I remember that he said there was a filter that would stop it. The washer is dead and has been replaced. Now I want to find my lost cross.  If anyone would tell me where the dropped cross would belocated I would appreciate it!  I am pretty handy and I know I can tear things up pretty good :)  I have a diagram and have downloaded a manual. THANKS in Advance!!!

If you have this older Cabrio this video shows how the tub comes out.And the back right is filter.Note that not all tubs comes out that easy.Post your model number if this video is not your Cabrio.Good luck.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=44nCWA5CHPw
