It might well be a coin! Coins and other items that fall from clothes pockets into the drum stay in the drum. They are too large to pass through the small drainage holes in the drum. But my granddaughter found a way! She opened the washing powder dispenser at the top of the machine and dropped three coins (that we know about) into the drawer and closed it. The water fill cycle then somehow swept the coins down into the drum. To get them out I had to dismantle the machine and remove the pump outlet assembly and poke a stiff wire into the drum and drag the coins out. The machine is a completely different make to your but I would assume a similar method would work. good luck

How to find drain filter to clean out machine making funny sounds

follow the steps below to get to the bottom of the problem.
1 Turn off your machine Before doing any sort of maintenance on your washing machine, you should turn it off and fully unplug it. If your machine is mid cycle when it starts to play up, follow advice in your washing machine's instruction manual for stopping and draining it.
2 Check the rubber door seal and drum Items that get into the drum can cause both strange sounds and a number of problems. most common culprits are coins and bra wire. Mostly coins remain in the drum or caught in the rubber seal - so these are the first places to check.
3 Check the lint filter Some items loose in the machine can work their way down to the lint filter.
hope this helps but if not follow the video on the link below.

Maytag front load washer problem

Two issues are there, one is that there is a possibility that coins have spilled over from trousers and could have choked that drain and the drum. You need to manually drain the water by opening the drain valve or hose and then if the door is stuck you can open the lock to have the coins removed from the drum.

Noise from machine

1.check if the bra wire is poking out of one of the drums.Check for drum bearing failure if your washing machine is noisy on the spin cycle. Drum bearing failure is common when the bearing seals start allowing water to enter. You can take the belt off and spin the drum by hand, and if the drum rumbles, replace the bearings.

2.clear the water pump from obstractions like coins or small objects there might be some coins stuck in it that are causing discomfort.

if all the above fails try to run the motor alone without the belt if you still hear the noise its the motor that has a problem

Sounds like coins between the basket and drum. How do I remove the coins?

If it has baffles for washing, check to see if you can lightly press the baffle to one side (press firm but don't snap it out) while rotating the drum by hand. I do this with my Whirlpool Duet and the coins eventually just slide out and into the drum where I can see them.

Coins stuck in washer

I've used a butter knife or putty knife to pry them up.. just enough to allow the coins to slide back out. Just roll the drum back and forth with the knife wedged in there. Good Luck.

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.

Drum noise

Good day.
Maybe there are coins left in the pockets that stucked within the drum during drain process. You can also check the bearing holder of your washing machine for this is also one of the reasons why noises occur during oepration

From the sounds of things, you are talking about a front loading dryer. The agitators in the dryer can get coins stuck inside them. Remove the top and rotate the drum to reveal the screws which hold the agitators to the drum. Remove the screws and the agitators, empty the coins or other debris and reinstall.

The loud squeal sounds like the pad under the open side of the drum is worn out. There may also be a dry main bearing in the rear of the dryer. Lubricate the bearing and reinstall the drum. The squeal should disappear.

If this is not a dryer or a front loading washer, none of these suggestions will apply, Sorry
