If the coin is in between the 2 drums but is free floating you amy be able to get it by removing th bottom drain hose from the drum but this can become a pain unless you are lucky as the coin will move with the machine tipped over. the other way is to remove the heating element while the machine is upright and use a stick or a grabber to get it out.

    How do I get to the heating element? Do I take top off washer? If I do will it go back on secure? The machine is heavy with a block of cement in it.

SOURCE: F11 error

The F11 fault is the motor. I have had this issue myself and found that replacing the contact brushes solved this. The brushes on most electric motors are made from carbon, and wear down with use. They are spring loaded but have a limited life span. These are also cheap to purchase.

SOURCE: My Whirlpool Cabrio washer has some coins trapped

They are not in your agitator. they are in the pump on the bottom left if you are standing behind the machine. Be VERY careful. That litle pump seems to be the beginnig of many leaking problems.

Digital timer stuck on 10 min.won't start the spin cycle


I know this isn't the solution you were hoping for but here is the manual for your machine:

You say it rotates L & R...do you mean it agitates but the timer isn't advancing?

My Maytag Washer won't drain or spin


Inside the main control switch has many studs of plastic. They get worn out and don't work. See if it works on a different cycle like delicate. No work; then you need a new control switch. Either way you need a new control knob switch!

Washing machine not draining


see this causes and fix it. God bless you
1. Clogged drain line or water pump
Check to see if there's something stuck inside the pump or the drain hose connected to the pump (pump is usually located at the bottom and towards the back of the washing machine).

2. Water Pump
If the drain line isn't clogged, you may have a problem with the water pump such as a frozen pulley or a broken impeller. If that's the case replace the water pump. Note: if you have a belt driven washer, check the belt(s) for cracks, as this would be a perfect time to replace the belt(s) if needed.
Coin Trap If the washer won't drain the coin trap may be clogged. This washer is equipped with a device near the water pump called a coin trap. The purpose of this device is to trap any foreign materials that make their way down the drain. Normally, the coin trap can be accessed through an access panel. It is designed with the homeowner in mind and is normally easy to clean out.

Frigidare FLXG52Rb won't final spin


Does the unit have a drainage problem? Do you notice the unit draining at all? Often when a unit does not spin it is because the unit cannot properly drain and dispose of the water and detergent solution.

Not over use detergent, this can result in oversudsing in the tub, and restricting the tub from turning properly.

That the drain hose is not too long.

That the drain hose is not restricted.

That the standpipe is not higher than 96" from the floor.

You may have defective timer or drain pump.

Also you might want to clean out the coin trap, filter trap, of the unit for extra security. This needs to be completed about every 6 months to prevent any issues.



1. Unplug the unit.

2. Tilt the unit up to where the front feet are in the air and the back feet are still on the ground. Please make sure the unit is propped up safely.

3. Now that the unit is propped up look inside on the bottom right hand side there is a black looking accordion thing. This is the coin trap.

4. Clean the drum out with as much water as possible and have towels ready. The next step you will have the remaining water come out.

5. At the top of the coin trap where it is attached to the drum is a silver spring with a silver screw. Loosen the screw and wiggle the coin trap down from the drum.

5. Reach inside the coin trap and clean what is inside of it out.

6. Put the unit back together following the same steps backwards

I have a Kenmore HT4 front washer and it washer is making a loud noise when it is in the spinning cycle. It sounds like the inside cycle is hitting up against something. It seem to wash okay and we...


There is only two things that I can think of 1: The bearings are going or 2: something has got under the door seal and is in between the metal drum and the plastic cover (around the drum). Could be something like a coin or even a bra wire.

My front loader washer had a sock inside the hose and the water backed up , and water was everywhere. is this common


It happens with many brands. Coins are commonly found in the pump traps in most washers. I don't know if LG washers are more prone to eating socks, but if you try Google with 'lg washer sock', you will see that you are definitely not alone.

I hope it doesn't happen again.

Good luck from Detroit, MI, USA.
