Question about Electrolux AWF1235 Front Load 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).
GO TO www.repairclinic.com IN THE BRANDS WINDOW CLICK ELECTROLUX THEN IN APPLIANCE TYPE CLICK WASHING MACHINE AND LOOK FOR PART 1154917 CLICK ON THAT PHOTO AND LOOK AT ADDITIONAL PICS.YOU WILL SEE THAT IT SNAPS INTO PLACE. FROM HERE I THINK YOU CAN TAKE IT OUT AND RETIEVE YOUR COIN. GOOD LUCK

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...

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!)
