Question about Washing Machines

Open Question

The coin slot is stuck/jammed on our washer. There are coins in the slots, and the coin catcher has been removed (we thought maybe it was full). I can feel the opening for the coins, but the coin-slot-thing will not go in or out.

I hate this
try insert another coin
if not you will have to run a wire through and a frictioned and magnetised coin might help
if you can you will have to dismantle this part in trying to release it

SOURCE: how do you check if the coin catcher is plugged on

Remove bottom pannel. you will see a black rubber boot.Undo the clamp that connects to the tub. Pull boot down a little and reach the top of the boot with fingers and pull out plastic coin catcher. Clean out and replace.

SOURCE: change the number of coins to operate

you need to take the coin slot apart take pictures as you go to put back together the parts to change amount are hidden inside it in hidden compartment if they wheren't removed by some one. your machine didn't come with the coin mech so if you don't have the parts you will need to take it with you to the parts house to get right parts. open the top of the coin mech box there are 2 long rod screws holding it in place usually 5/16 inch wrench fits may need to wiggle the heck out of it to get it out

Where is the coin catcher on a frigidaire front load washer?


Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand you want to know where the coin catcher is located. The coin catcher is located inside your washer, at the bottom right-hand side, attached to the drain pump. If you want to get to the coin catcher, I suggest contacting your local authorized technician for assistance. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

The coin mechanism is hard to push the coin slider, but it works.


Coin mech is held in place with 4 screw heads in key hole slots.

Move the mechinisim UPWARDS about 3mm and wiggle it around to disengage the screws.
The hex bar is only used to stop the mech going upwards.

Washer wont spin


either a bad motor control board or your coin catcher is full of stuff. i would check the coin catcher first. open the front panel and you can see the pump the coin catcher is the part that comes from the bottom of the tub to the pump.Careful when you take it out there will be water in it and you will have to be ready with a towel or shop vac. put it into drain first before taking apart. it will not drain all of the water.

I just bought a house that included in the sale a Maytag Coin-op Washer and Dryer. The coin box on each contains a key. How do I disable the need for putting coins in the washer and dryer so that I can...


  1. purchase a coin insert and blank the slot that coins fit in, then the slide will slid in without coins, just acting like a button, if you examine the slide you wil notice that there are plastic inserts in unused coin slots, any maytag commercial dealer has them.
  2. replace coin slide with 'free operation' converter, which is just a button plate that pushes the striker on the timer switch
  3. take top cover off and just push the striker on the timer, (this is NOT) a recommended option, 220v is enough to spoil you whole day)

Coin operated machines: slide mechanism is not moving back.


I had a coin washer and dryer.The slider has little fingers(metal)that slide over the coins.If the coin isn't placed and the slider is pushed hard will jam. Mine had a side cover with a lock. Open that and there is a long rod that has to be unscrewed to remove the lock box,then you should is what went wrong.Hope this helps>

Whirlpool coin operated washer and dryer


you need to take the coin slot out by using a socket wrench. then you need to flip the slot over and take the screws off. there is going to be two more screws to unscrew. take off that piece and also the claw like coin catcher. form here on out you should be able to remove as many slots as you need to.
