Clinking sound in a Siemens WFXD5200UC/01 front loading washer

I would suggest that a small thin metal item has got into the outer drum unit. This is the space between the internal spinning drum and the outer casing. This can sometimes happen by the object passing between the rubber door seal and the drum. Not easy to get out, however if it is small enough it may eventually find its way into the pump filter trap. There is a small round cover plate at the bottom right hand side of the machine. Behind the cover is the filter trap, open it up (when machine empty) and check for the object every so often. To open the filter turn the plug cover about a third anticlockwise and it should release. Pull gentle on the plug to remove from the machine.

Fixing error E20 on the Frigidaire Affinity 7000 Washer

Error code E20 is often not included on the list of error codes for this washing machine. The error E20 means that the coin trap/drainage hose needs cleaned out.
The coin trap is underneath the machine on the right hand side.There is a plate that covers the bottom of the machine, yet it most likely will have an access hole in it.
The coin trap is usually black and a somewhat accordian shaped looking hose.
To begin UNPLUG the machine .
Then use old towels to soak up excess water that is still inside the drum.
Next if the washer sets ontop a pedestal drawer seperate them by unscewing the screws in the back and under the front of the machine.
Now tip the machine onto its back making sure that it is safe and will not fall while you are working on it.
Look at the bottom of the machine and you will see an access hole.
looking through that hole with a flashlight you will see to the right a black hose with a slight accordian look to it.
At the top of that hose is a screw .This screw is connected to a wire type cable which goes around the hose, and that is what when tightened keeps the hose from coming loose from the drum.
Loosen the screw and pull the coin trap hose away from the drum enough to squeeze your hand into the hose.
Now clean out the hose as far as you can reach into it.
Take your time and get as much gunk out as you can.Unless you desire to redo these steps in a month or so!
When done place the hose back where it was and retighten the screw cable combo.Make sure it is tight and in the correct place;if not the machine will leak water onto the floor while in use.
After this then you may set the machine back up correctly and reattach the washer to the pedestal.
Take preventive measures and all ways check pockets before washing items!

We have a dryer fin with something rattling around in it. Do the fins come off?

Need a model number for the dryer for a more definitive answer--usually you would have to open the top cover to expose the drum. Depending on the model dryer, some baffles(proper name) are screwed onto the drum, some have plastic tabs which must be carefully pushed in order to remove the baffle. Most likely, the rattling is caused by coins left in pockets--they won't damage the dryer but can be irritating to listen to. Front load washers are notorious for trapping coins in the baffles of the rotating baskets--and that is A VERY EXPENSIVE REPAIR if you want to have the coins or objects removed.

Repair manual

Good Afternoon Brenda - Generally speaking, washer machines do not have a filter. Depending on your particular model the unit may have a coin trap. Below are some basic troubleshooting steps you may wish to follow to locate and clean the coin trap:
  • Unplug the unit.
  • Remove the bottom front access panel. There are two screws one on right and one on the left towards the bottom of the front panel.
  • Now that the panel is removed look inside on the bottom right hand side there is a black looking accordion thing. This is the coin trap.
  • Clean the drum out with as much water as possible that you can remove and have towels ready. The next step you will have the remaining water come out of the bottom of the drum and onto the floor.
  • At the top of the coin trap where it is attached to the drum is a silver spring with a silver screw. Loosen the screw and wiggle the coin trap down from the drum.
  • Reach inside the coin trap and clean what is inside of it out.
  • Put the unit back together following the same steps backwards.
Hope this information proves to be helpful!

Diagram to show pump filter on an affinity

Hello - After further researching it does not seem that there is an actual diagram available. However you may try the following steps to clean out the coin trap on an Affinity washer. Please be very cautious and it is actually recommended for this to be done by an actual certified technician.

1. Unplug the unit.

2. Tilt the unit up to where the front feet are in the air and the back feet are still on the ground. Please make sure the unit is propped up safely.

3. Now that the unit is propped up look inside on the bottom right hand side there is a black looking accordion thing. This is the coin trap.

4. Clean the drum out with as much water as possible and have towels ready. The next step you will have the remaining water come out.

5. At the top of the coin trap where it is attached to the drum is a silver spring with a silver screw. Loosen the screw and wiggle the coin trap down from the drum.

5. Reach inside the coin trap and clean what is inside of it out.

6. Put the unit back together following the same steps backwards

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...

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!)

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.

Kenmore front loader

There's no easy way of getting something out of between the tubs without removing the rubber door seal from the tub. It's a pain in the rear to get it to go back on too, because of the retaining spring that holds it in place. Are you sure the screw is between the tubs and not stuck behind one of the was tub fins? Most small items like screws will eventually find their way into the drain line and get caught in the drain pump strainer. Since you can't see the screw, it may actually be trapped behind one of the fins. One way of knowing is to roll the inner basket with one hand and listen. If you hear something rattling around it's somewhere in or on the inner tub. The outer tub (or shell) does not move. You can also look through the inner tub holes with a flashlight while turning it slowly to see if you can see anything between the wash tub and shell. Usually, water and gravity will force anything lying in the tub shell into the drain line. Let me know if this helps you.
