Coin stuck in front loader washer

Think a coin is stuck in the drum of our front loader washer. Still rotating but can hear it rattling around. Can we still use or is there a risk of creating a bigger problem? Is there any way we can get the coin out ourselves? It is an Electrolux EWF1090 (Australian).

    how do you squeeze this part out? I tried with my hands and it didnt even budge. What tools did you use?

    If you have not solved this issue yet, I just dealt with it tonight. To remove the drum baffle, where our coins were stuck at, slide the drum baffle towards the washer door to release. Hoping this works for you! We figured this out after taking most of the washer apart!

Although there are some more professional solutions with disassembly, I was able to use a rigid piece of wire - about a 12 gauge - about six inches long. You have to first find which baffle the coin(s) is in by slowly rotating the drum clockwise. when you hear the coins shift, look at the baffle that should be around 10 o'clock. Keep rotating and when that baffle is crossing 12 o'clock, you should hear the coins shift again. Next, take the wire and place it in the first hole on the top of the baffle about 3/4" deep. Don't go in to deep as there are holes in the drum for drainage that you do not want to go through. Rotate the drum back and forth between 10 and 2. If you hear the coin shift but don't feel it hit the wire, go to the next hole and try it again. I have found on ours that they will typically be at the back of the baffle. I then rotate the baffle to 6 o'clock. On two of the baffles if I just took the wire and pushed the coin to the corner and it slide out. On one, though, I had to take a flashlight and actually stick my head in the drum to see the coin though the little holes. I then pushed it to the corner and lifted the corner with my fingernail enough to force the coin through with the wire. I removed three coins in about 20 minutes today. I think this was is faster and safer than disassembly...

SOURCE: Think a coin is stuck in the drum of our front

yeah but its hard, and may not just fall out. Tip it on its side or front to get the panel on the bottom off. then open the bottom of the machine, and take off the black rubber hose (has a screw driven hose clip) this will allow the coin/button/bra thing/kids toy from the burger joint to fall out when you tilt the machine back and spin and jiggle it. good luck. buy a spare belt and read the belt too small posts. (its not too small!)

I have not fixed any of these front loaders for a while, but the top cover should come off (usually with a key), which will give you access to the coin mechanism and timer. There you usually need a 5/16 wrench or a flat screwdriver to remove the screw at the top of the mechanism.

Get washer on a table to allow easy viewing. Remove panel allowing you access to the heating element. Remove element and use tourch to find obstruction. Pull it out then reassemble.

LG front load washer A coin fell in between drum and housing.coin rubs on drum while spinning. how do you access the area between the drum and housing?


take off the front panel

on the bottom/front of the drum is the heater- held in with 10 mm nut - slacken the nut- this will loosen the heater in its holder- pull out the heater- this gives you access to the bottom of the tank

Coin trapped between rotating drum and casing


Get underneath the machine and remove the big black house coming directly out of the drum,this is held in place with either a screw tie or pinch type tie.
Put the machine back level and see if the coins drop out (they should) or have a feel around inside the drum.
Please make sure machine is unplugged and empty before carrying out this procedure.
Some water will come out of hose.
