The Service manual has the procedure starting on page 37 for the tumbler removal, take a look and see if you feel comfortable to give it a try. If you are handy or someone you know has basic mech. skill sets you can perform. You, I and many others need to check those pockets. Here is the service manual link.
The manual doesn’t call out the torx driver size required for tumbler removal. I just removed my tumbler cap and measured, it’s a #20 torx driver. If you call a repair service in make sure you have your Model# and Serial# number ready to pass along to them. You mentioned”” There is a penny stuck and the washer stops with water in it after it tries to spin.”” The tumblers do not rotate in spin cycle only the wash cycle. If you do a Spin Only cycle with no clothes in the wash basket do you hear the grinding noise? Good Luck.

Sorry Jo, I think I may have mis-understood your explanation - is there actually a problem with the machine functioning properly or is it simply that the end of cycle light will not turn off?
If it is the latter then simply turn the dial back to 0 before opening the door from the previous wash, this action tells the washing machine to reset itself as the drum is about to be emptied.
I have the exact machine however as it is graded, it didn't come with any manuals, at the end of the wash I just figured thta this was what I needed to do.
Its almost as if you need to double-declutch the washing machine - return the macine to 0 before selecting another cycle.

Lay the washing machine on its front & remove the back cover. Loosen the motor mount bolts (2 only) to allow the drive belt to slacken. Sit the drive belt aside. You will notice that the belt goes back into the clean shiny grooves in the motor pulley - be sure to put into the correct grooves when reassembling.
The drum pulley centre bolt is a normal right hand thread ie clockwise to undo. The pulley is then easily removed with a bearing puller.
Loosen the three bolts on the end of the 3 pronged mount, noting which is at the top of the machine - it only goes in the one way. Remove the three pronged mount from the machine. It will withdraw fron the drum shaft easily - worst case use the bearing puller again.
Next knock each bearing out of the three pronged mount with a drift, being careful to not damage the seal on one side. Put new bearings in (with 2RS seals are ok instead of 2Z type ie plastic seal is ok in place of metal seal for these bearings). Refit the seal last of all.
Put all back together & retighten the bolts firmly. Fit the drive belt (in the motor pulley shiny grooves) and retension the belt with the motor mount bolts (2 only) back in the original position.
Don't forget to put the machine back upright before test running!
I have also rebuilt a motor in one of these for about $100 if anybody needs to know how. Much better value than replacing one at $375+.

If you have purchased This Tv Bush LC39GL12F from Argos, there is not a code available and Argos do not forsee a code being available in the near future.
I was advised to call Argos Customer service on 0845 6403030 to log a complaint as to no code and eventually a code maybe made available..
NO Good Ringing Argos Tech support, Ring 0845 6403030 Argos Customer Service.
