If the coin is in between the 2 drums but is free floating you amy be able to get it by removing th bottom drain hose from the drum but this can become a pain unless you are lucky as the coin will move with the machine tipped over. the other way is to remove the heating element while the machine is upright and use a stick or a grabber to get it out.
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.
Price change for a model MAT12. Remove the access plate above the coin acceptor with a key. The display should show code 6 and two numbers. Code 6 is the regular cycle and the number of coins required to start. Press the perm press button to advance the number of coins. 06 equals 6 quarters, 08 equals 8 quarters, etc. Reinstall the access door when finished. Stephen
you need to take the coin slot apart take pictures as you go to put back together the parts to change amount are hidden inside it in hidden compartment if they wheren't removed by some one. your machine didn't come with the coin mech so if you don't have the parts you will need to take it with you to the parts house to get right parts. open the top of the coin mech box there are 2 long rod screws holding it in place usually 5/16 inch wrench fits may need to wiggle the heck out of it to get it out
we had the exact same problem yesterday, it turned out to be a coin in the drain pump. This can be accessed by removing the kick panel at the bottom of the machine, you will find a plug on the right hand side unscrew this anti clockwise, use a torch to look inside if you can se the blockage just remove it. it took us a few attempts to get the coin but we did it in the end.
before changing pump rermove all hoses and ck for coins a quarter can turn on side and block hose also ck down in pump throat 1 screw at front of pump and slide pump back to remove..pump will run $125-$160
We just had the same problem. We called an appliance store and they walked us through the process of finding out what was stuck in our pump and sure enough there was a quarter inside the pump. It broke one of the propellers but we were able to get the quarter out and reinstalled the pump and is still working fine. It is a bit of a hassle and will take some time, but it is definitely worth the money saved! I am forever grateful to the appliance store that supplied us with this information!
You cannot just take the front panel off! You have to set the machine on it's side and work on it from the bottom. My husband and I did this together and are thrilled that we did not have to pay for a service call and at this point do not have to purchase a new pump.
