Lost ring in Whirlpool washing machine...How can I find it?

LOST WEDDING RING: I have an older model top loading Whirlpool washing machine. Model # LA5558XTN2. It is 10+years old. It says on the front, "Heavy Duty, Super Capacity, 2 speed 5 cycle, magic clean filter, Gentle wash system." I washed my jeans with my wedding bands in the pocket. I found the engagement part of the ring in the dryer but the wedding band was no where to be found. I did wash another load of laundry before realizing what happened. I can not find the ring anywhere and am wondering if it is possible that it is somewhere inside the washing machine or is it possible that it made it to the drain and is gone for good? Someone told me that the ring can't go through the pump, so there is a screen that keeps large items out. Is this true? The inter drum has small holes all in it for the water to drain and the ring would not fit through those small holes. Is it possible that it slid under the agitator? If so, can it go down the drain, or is it possibly still under the agitator. I'd appreciate any help finding out how to find the ring. Thank you.
