There is a coin stuck in my front loader, how do i get it out...
Its a LG intellowasher, there's a little door on the front bottom to open to get bits out and i have gotten one coin out but one is stuck, i can feel it, but when i do it goes just out of my reach and i really can't get very far in to grab it. i can manage to usually still wash fine, till it gets stuck again and stops proper removing of all water.
there must be a way for me to get it.....

I assume you mean the filter behind the little door down the bottom. You open the door and unscrew the cover to remove the filter. if it won't come then it must be jammed. Try using a pliers to carefully work away at it . It probably has coins etc jammed inside. I have broken these by trying to remove them, but it has to come so if this happens it doesn't cost much for a new one good luck
The water pump can be blocked and thus stop the machine from finishing the wash cycle. In front on the bottom there is as hatch that can be opened with a flat screwdriver, the small black rubber pipe can be used to first drain all the water before the opening the filter. Small objects such as coins coluld be found in here, blocking the pump. Clean the pump by removing these, optionally blowing into the outlet (yuck!), to dislodge anything. If that does not help to fix the problem, you can clean that actual water pump, but this requires you to use a screwdriver to remove the pump.
Tilt the machine on its side, the pump is attached with 3 self-tapping screws. (if you can't figure out what the pump is you should probably let a technician do this). The pump has 2 parts to it, take it apart carefully and clean out all the dirt that has accumulated in there. Plastic friendly, waterproof grease can be applied to the pump spindle and bearing if available.
If the problem still persists a new pump is available from LG at a reasonable cost.
