Question about Maytag LSE7806A Top Load Stacked Washer/Dryer

Coin Stuck In My Dryer

I just moved into a new house and the previous owners apparently had a coin in their jeans pocket.  Now my dryer makes the most IRRITATING rattling noise ever, and I simply just can't take it anymore.
I've tried accessing it through the lint trap area, to no avail.  
It's a Maytag Neptune front loading dryer.
I'm about to call in a repairman, but I'd love to avoid spending the money on that if I can help it.  It's seriously driving me crazy.  Help!!

    We have the same problem with a Stacking Maytag. There is a coin in a vien as I can move it with a magnet. Just can't get the magnet to position the coin to slide it out thru the marrow **** between the drom and vein-base.. Trying to figure out how to get the front panel off so I can remove the vien and retrive the coin.

Well, i can get into the machine, not aproblem.. is the coin perhaps trapped inside one or more of the innerr drum viens perhaps??? anyway, ifyou removet he2 screws securing the door, and the 2 screws opposite the hinge, the front "u" shaped front panel will tilt off fowards.. from there theres a few 5/16 screws holding the main top assy to the froma of machine, you can remove them and tilt the top back, giving you acess to the outer drum assembly( and you can removethe drum viens and retreive te hoffending "coins" in htat fasion.. hope this helps.. TURN OFF POWER TO UNIT<< LIVE WIRES!!!!!!!

Dryer makes a screeching sound when run


It's probably caused by a coin, nail or screw between the dryer drum and the dryer housing. However strange it may sound, just put your head inside the dryer drum and look around the front juncture between the drum and dryer housing. You may find the offending object fairly easily.

Hole in pump caused by coin -- causing flooding


There is no screen! I bet it was a dime that was caught in the pump. It has happened to me several times to the point where we double check all pockets when loading washer. Coins larger than a dime stay in drum or in lower basket. Poor design! I now leave the back of washer loosened and have mastered pulling hose off the PLASTIC pump housing and reaching in to pull out the coin.

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.
