Possible fault with the program controller unit unless there is coins jammed up within that prevents the cycle to restart, But if so there will be error indication . Check the power to the unit, to confirm if this is not a power supply issue
Most likely, the lid switch or a power problem (plug, outlet, circuit breaker).
Check the lid for a plastic or metal prong that pushes a plastic thing on the washing machine. This is the lid switch. It stops everything if the lid is lifted. If the prong on the lid is broken or missing, it needs to be replaced. If the switch doesn't make a definite 'click' when you manually press it, it is bad and needs replacement (doing this may cause the washer to start agitating, so keep your hands away from the moving parts inside).
If none of this helps, it may well be the coin mechanism and/or timer.
The coin will not drain out nor be fed back into the tub by the recirculation pump but it will block the filter or eventually block the impeller of the drain pump and break it. You'll then experience a draining problem and need to replace the drain pump.
What you have to do is remove the basket to get the coin out then take the opportunity to clean the filter vanes. The coin is most probably still in the filter.
Tape the lid to the top of the washer then disconnect power to the washer.
The top of the washer is held to the front of the cabinet by two locks located about six-and-a-half inches away from the outer edges of the washer. Use a putty knife blade or similar tool to press and unlock the top locks.
Insert the blade of a putty knife into the seam between the top of the washer and the cabinet at the given distance from the outer edges of the washer. Press the locks then lift the top of the washer.
Remove the impeller (wash plate) cap by inserting the blade of a flat-bladed screwdriver or similar tool into the slot in the impeller cap, and then pry the cap off.
Remove the 7/16" hex-head bolt from the impeller (wash plate), then lift and remove the impeller from the basket.
Pull the recirculation hose off the tub ring by compressing the spring clamp holding it in place. Remove the tub ring by prying and unsnapping its tabs from the tub.
Lift the basket out of the washer to access and clean the filter. Remove the two screws holding the filter to the tub. Take the filter off and clean it.
Reinstall the filter, the basket, and the wash plate. Secure the wash plate with the 7/16" hex-head bolt then snap the impeller cap in.
Put the tub ring in place aligning the tabs then snap the tabs back into position. Reinsert the recirculation hose into the tub ring and secure it with the spring clamp. Push and lock down the top of the washer to the cabinet.
In case the coin is no longer in the tub or in the filter, turn off the water supply to the washer. Disconnect the fill hoses from the rear the washer and remove the end of the drain hose from the laundry tub or stand pipe.
Place padding or cushion on the floor fronting the washer, and then carefully lay the washer on its front panel to access the drain pump at the bottom of the washer.
With the washer facing down and you facing its bottom, the drain pump is on the left while on the right is the recirculation pump. You can actually see the drain hose connected to the drain pump.
Using a pair of pliers, compress the spring clamps holding the drain pump inlet and outlet hoses. Move the clamps away from the pump then remove the hoses.
Remove the three 5/16" hex-head drain pump mounting screws. Open the wire cover on the pump then disconnect the wires from the terminals of the pump, and then remove the pump from the washer.
Check the pump impeller for any debris and clean it. Reinstall the pump after cleaning and secure it with the three 5/16" mounting screws. Reinsert the inlet and outlet hoses then secure it with the spring clamps. Make sure the tab on the outlet hose connector fits into the slot in the outlet hose.
Reconnect the wires to the pump terminals then close the wire cover.
With these heavy machines you cant lift and shake or direct the coin to the outlet hole. The only solution is a complete dismantle and that is not for the fainthearted and certainly not for anyone other than someone qualified and willing to do the job.
Hi, The coin is probably inside the baffle that tosses the clothes around. I believe this nodel has a screw that holds the baffle in place. I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further.
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>
