Yes, it is. You must first remove the screws in the top and the front will come off easily afterwards.

We hope this information is helpful to you.

Thanks, Ella

Remove coins from under drum


This depends upon the brand, but most washers have a trap under the front apron at the water pump. The trap will capture the coins that get under the drum. I have collected many dollars from traps. Use a wet dry vacuum attached to the drain line to completely remove the water from the washer prior to opening the trap.

Coins


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

I have whirlpool LHW0050PQ4 washer, after connect prower, start light is flash and hear click but no water in and is not working


Hello.

It can be tempting to ignore washing machine noises, especially if the machine is still working. But washing machine noise is not only annoying, it can also be a sign of serious damage. When armed with a few tips, you can determine what problem may be causing your washing machine to rattle, and what you can do to stop it.

1 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 Turn the drum by hand and listen for loud noises. If the drum itself is split or the 'spider' is corroded, broken or has come apart from the back of the drum it will create a loud noise on every turn of the drum. (When the bearings have gone bad, the noise is constant the entire time the drum is spinning.)

3 Look for obvious dents and creases in the drum or look for coins or small objects stuck inside the tub underneath the drum when a horrendous noise is made while clothes are in the tub.

4 Clear the water pump from obstructions like coins or small objects when a noise occurs while the washing machine is emptying water.

5 Remove the sump hose and look for bra wires if you hear a light scraping noise when the drum is turned by hand. You can also check to make sure a wire isn't poking out of one of the holes in the drum. In this case, you can pull the wire out easily with pliers.

6 Take the belt off and run the motor alone if you hear a high pitched squealing noise to check for motor bearing damage or wear. If you still hear the noise without the belt, it's the motor bearing.

Thanks.

I can hear a coin rattling under the drum of my duet front load washer. How can I remove it?


If I were you, I would leave it, and it should find it's way into the filter.
To try and remove it is quite an involved task.

Sounds like I have a coin in the neptune dryer under one of the fins inside the drum. how do I get it out?


Disassembly of the front and top of your dryer can be found in the Service Manual at the link below beginning on page 9-1. Once the top is raised turn the drum slowly clockwise until the screws for the vane you wish to remove are at the top. Loosen the screws just a few turns and turn the drum until the coin or article falls out. Repeat for each vane until you find the noisy object. Reverse the disassembly to reassemble.

Fix my machine


Hi vickie234 Quite often the noise can be attributed to something getting between the inner & outer drums. If I had a dollar or pound for every under bra wire I have removed from washers I would be a rich man. Occasionally the clips that hold the element in place between the drums can also cause this same noise. Turn the drum slowly with your hand & see if you can hear the wire or clip. The only solution to this is to remove the wire. Not easy if you haven't done this before. Reagrds
