Hello Anthony Broccone - This may or may not be specifically for your model, however there are generics instructions. Typically to check for a restriction in the drain line you will need to follow the steps below:

1. Unplug the washer

2. Pull the washer out to tilt it back so you can reach the screws below the front panel and remove it. (You will need something to catch the water once the hose is removed from the bottom of washer)

3. Loosen the bolt with the sliver clamp on the bottom of the washer. The water will begin to

come out while your loosening the clamp. (Do not remove any GREEN clamps)

4. Once the water is out, you can stick your hand inside the hose to clean it out.

Remove coins from under drum


This depends upon the brand, but most washers have a trap under the front apron at the water pump. The trap will capture the coins that get under the drum. I have collected many dollars from traps. Use a wet dry vacuum attached to the drain line to completely remove the water from the washer prior to opening the trap.

How to clean a coin trap?


Thanks for your post, friend!

I understand that you looking for steps on how to clean the coin trap on your Frigidaire washer. Here are the steps to access the coin trap.


· Assure power has been disconnected to your appliance.

· 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 it is tilted up safely.

· Look inside on the bottom right hand side there is a black accordion piece. This is the screen trap or coin trap.

· Have towels available with you because any access water will come out.

· At the top of the coin trap where it is attached to the drum you will notice a silver spring and screw. Loosen the screw and wiggle the coin trap out.

· Clean the trap and follow these steps in reverse to reassemble your washer.


Best of luck! -Matt

Repair manual


Good Afternoon Brenda - Generally speaking, washer machines do not have a filter. Depending on your particular model the unit may have a coin trap. Below are some basic troubleshooting steps you may wish to follow to locate and clean the coin trap:
  • Unplug the unit.
  • Remove the bottom front access panel. There are two screws one on right and one on the left towards the bottom of the front panel.
  • Now that the panel is removed look inside on the bottom right hand side there is a black looking accordion thing. This is the coin trap.
  • Clean the drum out with as much water as possible that you can remove and have towels ready. The next step you will have the remaining water come out of the bottom of the drum and onto the floor.
  • 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.
  • Reach inside the coin trap and clean what is inside of it out.
  • Put the unit back together following the same steps backwards.
Hope this information proves to be helpful!

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.
