    i have the same problem. i had a repair guy run off with the keys to the coin box. and i am not having much luck in finding a solution. my next step is to contact a locksmith. perhaps they can help me out. at least maybe they can pick the lock on the existing coin box so i can remove it and get a new one. or best of all maybe they can install a new lock. the lock looks to be a very simple and straightforward. i'll keep looking for solutions and let you know if i come up with anything. glen

I have a huebsch coin laundry but when I tried to open to empty the coins the key doesnt work and that's the only key I used all this time . what could be the problem thanks


If someone has attempted to break into the machine, they may have damaged your key mechanism. Try lubricating the key, inspect the key for damage also, gently feel as you try to turn the lock for a section of less resistance... Replace the lock if you get it open. If all else fails, you may have to spend the day drilling out the lock, hardened steel is difficult, but not impossible to drill...

Washing machine wont come on but i check the plugs and the push button are okey . you know any other parts that needs to be replace ? thank you.


If this is a kenmore front loader (boxy type made by frigidaire), the button must be
depressed for several seconds. The second problem with this model is the "coin
mechanism" cam must be in the correct position to operate the machine. If someone
puts in coins two times without starting, it can get out of sequence with the timer.
If you have a key, open coin box and move the metal arm back until the cam advances
to just before the big dip. (with the unit unplugged). The next cycle will allow the
arm to drop and engage the microswitches. If you don't have a key put coins in the
slide mechanism as though you were going to start the machine and
depress button until machine starts, this will reset the cam to the correct position.
Hard to explain but if you look at the coin mechanism, it will become obvious.
If you need a new mechanism it is called the "start mechanism" for front loaders.
Hope this helps.

That lock icon indicates a locked door, and if you can open your door with it locked, your door lock will need to be reset. Your instruction manual should have your reset procedure listed in back. But if your door IS locked, you will need to manually drain out the water before it will open.

  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)
