I just got a used Kenmore 110.24852300. Is there anyway to find out what the rated capacity is? I'm trying to find specs on it

Also, it was left in a garage and I found a few leaves in it. I tried running a cycle and I guess there was at least one dried up leave left in it.
Now every time the washer fills up, I see lots of tiny black bits of leaf particles. As it drains, I assume it is leaving some of it on the tub wall.
I've tried using a fine mesh strainer but everytime I run another cycle, I see more tiny black bits.

Short of taking it apart, do you have any suggestions on how to clean out all the tiny particles?

Measure it.

Lift drain hose up, power off. Full the washer with a garden hose, lower the drain hose to the ground outside or floor drain inside and keep filling the washer with the garden hose allowing it to drain out at the same time as you are filling it *should* help flush out the inside workings.

Wouldn't I need to know the volume of the agitator so I could subtract it?

If I recall, the tub will not drain because the pump is inline.

I've looked into what it would take to disassemble it. It looks pretty straight forward except I dont own the spanner wrench. I guess I'll start with removing the agitator to see if its covering anything then try removing the tub cover to see if I can get anything down between the basket and tub to clean it out without removing the basket.

Remove the agitator for measuring and the agitator is not included in any tub size specs.

?Inline? like roller blades? The water will free flow right through the pump.
